End of Medical Posting - EXTENDED

So I got extended. Instead of 4 months to complete the medical posting, I had it extended by 18 days. 

Well, actually big boss signed my logbook on 21st of July - making it 2 weeks extension. But I applied leave for 3 days.

4 months and 18 days in medical

Yay! End of medical posting!

If you ask me how am I feeling right now, I would say.... relieved. 

Being a first poster - starting in Medical posting - in Hospital Ampang - it was tough. 

The first two weeks of tagging, I was scolded and even cried in front of everyone, made mistakes here and there - it was an unforgettable experience. 

As time goes by, I learned how to avoid certain doctors to minimise the damage. I learned how sometimes, its best to just keep quiet and accept the scolding even if its not my doing. I learned how to mind my own business. I learned some people can be selfish and rude. I learned how to be a good doctor by watching the senior doctors and specialists work. I learned a lot in this posting.

And I will keep on learning. Tomorrow I'll start my second posting, not sure which one yet. I'll find out tomorrow.

See you next time!

The M word

Its been 1 month and 11 days that I have been working in medical department.

The most common question asked here other than "Which university are you from?" is "Are you married?"

Most of the times, I smiled and hesitated to answer.

"Do you have a boyfriend?"

Well.....

It's complicated.

One of the MOs encouraged us to date a doctor - they are more understanding with our work, he said. Go get married, you are exposing yourself to breast and ovarian cancer by staying single, he said. LOL really

What are you waiting, for God to find you a husband? You have to put some effort in it, he said.

Yes, that part is true. I don't know what I am waiting for. Magic, maybe.

Don't get me wrong. It's not that I don't want to get married - I am dreaming of the day I get to have my own family and stuff.

It's just that I am not making any plan for this one year period. I would want to focus on my housemanship first - only then I'll think about guys. I am open to making friends and getting to know people though.

Workaholic much?

Bite me.
