Dear PT Students,
“I feel like a fraud,” she said. She wasn’t my student, but she was in the middle of completing her final clinical.
I think most of us can relate to this on some level. One minute you’re taking a test and answering questions in class and the next you realize that hardly any patient presents like the textbook said they would.
But, you’re not a fraud, you’re not an imposter, and you are good enough.
You just don’t have the experience or the reps to feel confident. That will come with practice. In the mean-time, here are 3 ways to deal with the feeling.
You won’t wake up one morning with all the answers. You will gradually, but undeniably become the best clinician you can be.
