So, today I had my first oral exam! Well, technically it was a quiz, but when you have to face every single preceptor and regurgitate diet prescriptions on the spot...it's an exam.
Here's how it goes.
We had an oral quiz over our "phase one diet prescriptions". Basically, this means that we needed to be able to recite any and all diet prescriptions that could be used in basic, easy-to-handle patients during our first phase (the first three weeks of the internship). The diets could include, but are not limited to
- 2g Sodium with Fluid Restriction
- Wired Jaw
- Heart Healthy
- Dysphagia I
- Dysphagia II-III
- Gluten Free
- Fat Free
- Lactose Free
p.s. All the interns totally nailed it - great job to all my classmates!!
