How I see it

I guess Nadhira got the point about how different O&G and Surgery 

This is how I see it

Internal Medicine
This is more like a serious posting
This was my first ever posting in my clinical year
I woke up around 8am and head to ward at 9am
If I want to go help the Houseman there taking blood, will be there in the ward at 7.15am
Usually teaching 2 times a week
Monday and Thursday will have workshop
Just that need lots of reading
I don't even have a picture of anyone of us during Internal Medicine
*interest of taking picture not there yet*

During mooncake festival in Tanjong Karang, Kuala Selangor

Community Health
This is where we work, have fun and bond 
I always miss my whole morning and wake up in the afternoon for brunch
Morning is usually the time I'm comfortably hugged by my blanket under the air conditioner
We will have to go out around Kuala Selangor at 8am to attend briefing in District Health Office (DHO) and Klinik Kesihatan

The best part is we get to follow the DHO people to do fogging
Now I have first hand experience on holding the fogging machine and go fog people's house!

We even went house-to-house doing health survey then from that we made a program for the village to increase the awareness based on the survey

AND we ate a lot of seafood there in that whole 8 weeks
I ate cockles non-stop until my mom told me I can get Hepatitis A

This is how we dress when we want to go into operation theater

Obstetrics and Gynecology (O&G)
Monday and Thursday morning wake up with faster heartbeat than any other day
Off to Grand Ward Round
My ward (green ward) is famous of having up to 4 hours round for 26 beds
We had to present the case and it was a must to present it PERFECT
The consequence of not doing it well, is to get scolded by a few specialist in front of more than 30 people
Wednesday morning my group will follow our supervisor's clinic
We must present case in front of him and patient as well
Friday is where I can relax

This is more like being so hectic and so happy when you get to help a Mom deliver their baby!
Other than that, is all about lost count how many times I was scolded and was told Nonsense!

Relax, blur, no direction - says it all

Wake up, look at my alarm, 8am - CHEH, sleep back
11am, still thinking should I go to ward
Until now, I'm still not sure what I'm doing in this posting
Week 5 coming soon...
3 more weeks to finish my 3rd year posting!

Then study break
Pass or fail...
