for those who took the cs i need an honest opinion. i just took mine in philly 2 days ago and am paralyzed with fear.

Please tell me without false assurance what do u think my chances are based on the following.

i ran out of time in 2 cases and did not do closure-counseling
i also forgot to counsel about smoking/illicit drugs in 2 cases
i missed the obvious diagnosis in 3 cases and my d/d were not in order of likelyhood in about another 3
i missed some imp questions and physical points here and there.

I did the rest (standard of knocking greeting smiling draping asking if they had questions) and my PN, were mostly complete

what do you guys think?

i took my exam march 28th, and i have been feeling the same way. i am also waiting for the result ....dont know whats going to happen, pretty much the same mistakes like yours


  #4

counseling an closure are very important. so you might lose points on that as far as the other stuff you mentioned i dont think that will effect your result.

if you did well (build a rapport, showed compassion, were nice, did counsel and closure etc.) on the other 10 cases i really doubt you will have any problem.

good luck

yes i made sure to finish the other 10. both of the ones i lost time on where neuro cases and I was in the middle of examination when i ran outa time.

thank you this alleviates my anxiety considerably. hopefully it'll be those 2 cases that wont count. keeping my fingers crossed

Hey, I went through the same thing, only worse. I ran out of time in 4 patients! And I still passed.
