Kinder and Gentler...
One of the tasks taking up my time the past few weeks was ATLS. Some of the students (especially those who had paid with their own money) did very well. Others, obviously, did not.
All of the students had received their materials (book and pretest) at least 2 and 1/2 weeks before the course. Many had not completed their prestests and many others admitted they had not read the material. Yet these people are amazed when they fail the course.
Those of you with a more intimate knowledge of other courses may be able to answer this. With the conventional wisdom out there being "everyone passes ACLS" has the average student preparation decreased? Some seemed truly surprised that people can and do fail ATLS. I am contemplating adding a paragraph to the letter that is sent to the students informing them of this fact.
Please let me know what you think.
UPDATE: Thanks for the input. Have those of you that teach such courses seen a diminished level of preparation?

The Dogs make it to the SEC championship game for the third time in four years. With Tech beating Miami next Saturday's game should be very interesting.

Sorry about the lack of posts, clinical and adminstrative duties have increased over the past few weeks. One partner ill and another with a death in the family so things have been topsy-turvy at the Acme Surgical Corp.
Oh yeah, two losses in two games. The Dogs can't seem to win when it counts. But thanks to the Evil Genius, the Dogs can still win the SEC east. Yes, thanks to Darth Visor leading South Carolina over Florida, Georgia can play in Atlanta by defeating Kentucky this Saturday.
