You need to be committed and put in extra effort. Specific tasks are usually assigned to medical students, and you may even ask for extra hours and assignments. Remember, you will be taught by residents, and they typically work long hours. If you volunteer to help out, you may score more points as you help them ease their workload.
Always be prepared. You won't have much contact with the patients the way residents do. So you'll have all the time to prepare, looking at your patient's medical histories, reviewing their lab test results, and studying physician notes.
Never complain as a med student, even if you make mistakes and get blistered for it. There's no need to complain about it. The rotation is just for a short period. You could speak up if the situation is not appropriate, but for the most part, it becomes a gamble. Also understand that as a medical student, you are at the lowest level of the ladder in clinical practice, so humility is a must.
Participate in clinical exams and diagnostics with enthusiasm. Always be at the front and center and assist in procedures by learning from every experience.
Exhibit an air of professionalism in every sense. The medical profession is one of the noblest ones. Your attire should be professional, just like your conduct in the clinic. Ensure your lab coat is clean all the time. Avoid distractions during rotations such as looking at your phone during clinical hours (unless it's work related).
Show respect to everyone – residents, laboratory technicians, cleaners, nurses, patients, and family members. Lessons can come in many forms, so make sure to be open to learning in every way possible.
