Are you preparing for the next sitting of the ICU Fellowship exam? General or Paeds? It’s easier if you’ve got a buddy. At very least there is someone to share the pain with.
It can be tricky finding someone to study with, so why not go to the Discussion Forum and leave a note for prospective study buddies. Attending the S.I.N. B.I.N. or V.I.N. meetings might also help you find a partner-in-suffering.
You don’t necessarily have to be geographically close to study together any more. Online tools like Twitter, Google Hangout and Skype, even the iPad’s FaceTime, allow real time collaboration. So you can still sit down together to go through papers, plague eachother with vivas or even prepare for the Hot Cases without being in the same hospital, city, state or even country.
So start talking to eachother and make a tough time a little bit easier on yourself.
