'My placement don't want me there'

Comment

I had a placement like this. The senior members of staff made it perfectly clear I was in the way, not trusted to do anything and undermining me in front of patients! My suggestion would be to contact university. We had meetings with our uni mentor and placement mentor at the beginning and end of every placement, do you? If so then maybe drop them an email stating you are having a couple of issues and are wanting a meeting for clarification of your role and responsibilities on this placement so not to step on toes. Maybe also include your proactively seeking experiences with the MDT on this placement to broaden your understanding of the patient experience, then your placement mentor would be hearing from uni directly. I really hope you get it sorted. I had 8 weeks of nightmares on my horrendous placement. If all else fails...play the game. Pass the placement and take it as a learning experience of how not to treat students when you're qualified! I sure did x
