Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
So it has been awhile since I last wrote my post here in this blog. Well things went haywire lately. I'm currently in my Primary Care posting so I hadn't got enough chance to write here. It was a hectic and busy posting. Even though I'm now in my 5th week of this posting but I still thought that I hadn't know much. The moment when the doctors asked you such simple questions and you cannot answer them, it felt so.. I didn't know. Stupid? Yeah. That suited it better. I mean like, you've been taught that before and why on earth that you cannot answer it? There you go. Shame on you!
In the other hand, I found that this posting was really amazing. It was such a tumultuous ride. Though it comprised of vast areas but it was really important for you to know every single thing. You cannot missed any of them because you're going to be a doctor and you would never know who are going to walk through the door and meet you. You cannot choose your patients right? Whatever things that they had presented with, you have to deal with it; whether you like it or not.
Like one of my doctors have said before; "You need to become a good doctor because you are going to treat those people outside. Your patient might be someone's father, uncle or child. If you are going to give your own father or family members the best treatment, how about the others? Are you going to treat them differently because they are not your family members?"
This posting had also give me a new perspective. As you see, before this I just study without knowing that I also need to educate my patient. I need to give my patient good education so that they know what are they have been suffered with, what are their problems and so on. The education is not only for me but I needed to educate my patient as well. Plus I also learnt that good communication skill is one of the skills that a doctor must have. How to tackle the patient to get a good and proper history, how to break the bad news, how to counsel patients and many more. I really learnt a lot and enjoyed every single thing about it.
Well that's all my ramblings for this time. I needed to off now since I still have classes and CME for tomorrow.
