Default How to excel Nephrology observership ?

Guys, I will be starting an observership soon with a physician. Due to circumstances , I might not be able to do an externship at all. So, I need the best output AKA LOR from whatever observership opportunities I can manage. Any advice/notes/tips/most common diseases you found on your out patient experiences? Thank you in advance.

Check out the book

Success on the wards: 250 Rules to for Clerkship success. It gives very valuable advice how to do things the ""correct"way. (their way is the correct way)

IMHO the most helpful resource for clerkships etc.
