failing a cardiology elective...applying to IM
Guys, Im freaking out!! Heres the issue:
Im currently a 4th year and doing my electives. I started a cardiology elective the beginning of this month but missed several days due to interviews and traveling. Thus, the preceptor has just told me he will be giving me a F!!! He was initially okay with me missing days but seemed to change his mind. If he gives me this F, my gpa will drop but still much more than enough to meet the minimum to graduate. Also, I have time to make up another 4 week elective.
My question is, how bad does it look on my transcript when time come down to matching? Obviously, residency applications will not have this grade on their table but will see it when they get my final transcript. My USMLE stats: 222/226/CS first attempt/US citizen/ Caribbean img.
anY INSIGHT would be greatly appreciated!! any tips on how to handle this situation?
