So in the Monash course there's a lot of group work and discussions, which I know play a massive role in the life of a medical practitioner and health staff in general. Problem is, I'm not entirely comfortable speaking in front of large audiences (like when half the cohort has mass active learning and random people are picked out to answer questions ), sometimew my heart beats loudly and my voices wobbles. I also don't think that what I have to say is engaging, just me stating the obvious, so that's probably a part of it. One on one even sometimes can be hard but I'm improving... Especially with O week. But thinking about the volume of presentation and group work is a bit daunting. Do current/past meddies have some tips on improving confidence when speaking or getting over my introversion? I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with shyness but I'd feel bad for not contributing because I'm uncomfortable speaking to the group.
