Best podcast for MS3 OBGYN rotation prep
I start my first rotation of 3rd year next week in OBGYN. Before listening to your episodes, I was pretty nervous for this rotation since I have zero experience working in this specialty. Now, I feel much more comfortable on what I’ll be walking into and I’m very excited! Thank you so much Dr. Doorey! Really enjoy these episodes.
Dr. Doorey THANK YOU! You are an absolute Godsend and this is an incredible resource for med students. I’m an M3 a week away from wrapping up my OBGYN rotation and listening to the podcast felt like a play by play review of the last 7 weeks! I was nodding the whole time! Lol. Fantastic, fantastic resource, covers the pertinent and high yield info succinctly and clearly! I only wish I had found it sooner and listened to it all before my first day but glad I found it nevertheless. Thank you for this and thank you for having it be accessible to students of all schools and socioeconomic backgrounds!
Best of luck with your career and all your business ventures!
PS - as a former tutor I can attest you have a penchant for teaching and will do well in medical education!
Fantastic podcast to listen to before your OBGYN rotation! I listened to this before starting my clinical rotation and it was SO HELPFUL. I honestly had no idea what I was getting into with certain procedures/surgeries and this podcast lays out everything so clearly, step-by-step that I was better oriented and better prepared to learn in the clinic/OR. Listening to these podcasts and then scrubbing into a case made me feel as if I had already seen the procedure before, which really solidified my learning and understanding. I would look at the clinic’s schedule and plan to listen to certain episodes on my drive into clinic that day. Highly highly recommend this podcast if you’re feeling nervous about starting your OBGYN rotation!
