apart from regurgitating what's in the medical textbooks, iium medical students, in general are "good" in talking only about two particular topics-
1. my friend
2. my hobbies
do you sense something wrong with this?
21-year old, second year medical students still emphasize on kindergarten level topics of presentation or public speaking.
when i was a kid, if i were called out to speak in public, these 2 topics were the first to cross my mind. isn't it an embarrassment for international level medical students to talk about it at a primary school pace?
