Routine Work

Taken with phone camera

Small Note: I plan to post random shots once in a while as some sort of chronicle of my life as a medical student in Melbourne. Most of the pics are going to be taken by my phone which explains the lower image quality. Anyway this blog is probably turning into a place for random rambling and snippeting after all, despite my ambition to keep it interesting, educational and hopefully inspirational. Time is catching up on me. Tight, tight, tight. Not talking about my pants obviously. Lame, I know.

The Fifth Year

1956DrFrankFostertutorial (by changyang1230)From tomorrow onwards, I am going to become one of the "fifth year medical students" in the hospital.

While the sound of  "a fifth year medical student" might inspire a considerable amount of confidence in the laymen, embarrassingly I find the confidence unfitting for my knowledge and skill. After four years of studies, all I could command is some bare grasp of the most common diseases, and little to no knowledge of the rarer conditions. All I could do is to insert an IV cannulae (even this was last done quite a while ago), shove a tube up the urethra of an anaesthetised patient and feel blindly inside a man's anus. That doesn't sound like too much but it's enough to overwhelm me.

It's going to be one of the more challenging times. Kicking start tomorrow at 7am - Gastrology, Hepatology, GI & Hepatobiliary Surgery, General Surgery. Stay tuned to Austin Hospital, at various places. Be on time. Pray that Connex doesn't break down. And hopefully, just hopefully, everything will turn out fine, or even enjoyable.
