I’ve been searching for blogs of preclinical medical students, to get a feel for their struggles and difficulties. They’re struggling and they have diffculties. Medicine is hard however you do it, right from the start.
Links to a few:
Arzhang’s Medicine Blog – this guy’s just started his medicine course, and finding that it’s a tough workload.
Over My Med Body! – a second year student and an experienced blogger.
Saving People, ‘n Stuff – another new medical student, getting the usual, “I shouldn’t be here!” early stage panics.
The Lingual Nerve – woah! A later stage of study, but with some absorbing writing.
