Harry Hicklin, MS4

Although I always thought that I would end up pursuing a residency in Internal Medicine, my decision wasn’t final until after finishing the 3rd year Internal Medicine clerkship.  My experience in the clerkship was outstanding, and my interactions and discussions with attendings helped me learn so much.  However, I attribute much of my success in the clerkship and my continued interest in Internal Medicine to the residents who I interacted with, day and night.  I can say without hesitation that each resident that I worked with took an interest in my education, and even during busy times made a point to teach me.  After finishing my 4th year of medical school, I realize what an important role residents play in the experience that medical students have during their hospital and clinic rotations.  I am thankful that I had the opportunity to work with so many people who cared so much about medical student education.
