10 Things I Learned in Residency

Beautiful. Considering I'm starting residency in just a few weeks, I'll be printing these out and gluing them to my bathroom mirror. Well, that is, if I ever see my own mirror again.

#5 is something I have already dealt with as a medical student. My question is this: If the medical student AND intern AND senior resident hadn't already taken their own full history, do you think the attending would have thought to ask the detailed question that "solves it" if they had seen the patient first? I actually wonder.

That's assuming the question "solves it" at all. A lot of times, it's a totally random question that's pretty unimportant.
