After months of studying I finally finished Part 1 of the National Boards last Tuesday. We don't find out until May if we passed or not but I'm just going to listen to my moms advice. "Might as well celebrate like you passed, until you find out if you didn't!"
Just to give you a little more insight on what taking the exam is like I thought I'd be the most descriptive now since I just so recently took it. The exam consisted of 500 questions broken into 4 different sections of 125. You get 3 hours and 45 minutes for section so it's more than enough time to finish each one. It's taken over two days so you take 2 sessions the first day and 2 sessions the second day. It's a rough couple days but the feeling you have afterwards is priceless!
Since boards have been over I've been enjoying the beautiful weather here in Memphis and all the spring events the city has to offer. I'm excited for externships this summer and can't believe that in a little over a year I'll be a doctor!
