Dear readers, actually now we are having semester 5 break! Yeppi am so happy! minus the fact that i am getting older, yet still had no idea what kind of activities i wanna try during this short break. I'd want to go for a trip though.. Love all kind of fun and adventures!
For your information, I am currently now in Orthopedic Rotation. Do you know what does Orthopedic mean? Orthopaedic surgery or orthopaedics (sometimes spelled orthopedic surgery and orthopedics) is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. To make it simple, if someone involve in a motor vehicle accident, they will be admitted to orthopedics ward to get further treatment and management. I started to love this posting on 2nd week of it due to some of reasons which I couldn't state here (^_*) but i hope with time it will go smoothly inshaAllah.
The 1st week (24/1 until 28/1) was so tiring because we had to adapt with some conditions and rules provided by posting coordinator. Surely it is a must for every students whenever we get to a new place, we have to learn about what to Do's and Dont's. Yes now i have to keep several things in mind and stuck it forever.
Every day from 8am until 5pm, we have several sessions such as Ward Rounds, Clinics, Ward Work, Bedsite Teaching (BST), Lectures, Seminars and CBD. During nights, we have to go oncall and see cases. We might have to present the case on the next day so we have to clerk patients beforehand and get prepared with all the reports. Plus, there is a thing called Conference Medical Education (CME) held every Thursday whereby all doctors are required to be present. As student, we can watch their presentations and learnt many things from there.
It's necessary to take turn for everyone to present their cases. Every student will get high marks if they present them so clearly and complete. Make sure to ask about the mechanism of injury, pain or any other symptoms related. (Year 3 in medical field is all about clerking, taking complete history & doing physical examination) Be ready for any kind of questions regarding your topics such as differential diagnosis. managements, treatments etc. Btw, I miss Mr Burhan's teaching! He's full of good advises that can lure ones' heart. He's the one I mention in my latest instagram's photo so..he's so far my favorite lecturer hee
It's a matter of respect also to consider, address and acknowledge every and each staff nurses, HOs, MOs and specialists. You need to be attached either with your supervisor or MOs. Every clinics can fit in 2 doctors.. Wear your most comfortable shoes going there or else you will end up getting painful standing for the next 4 hours. Furthermore, you can watch procedures in POP room also. Being attached to MOs or HOs is actually a chance for you to ask them what's the thing you didnt understand as they would love to teach us. 1 tip, always have an available data so it is easier for you to google anything to answer their questions. ;)
This is different following your own supervisor. Dr T will do rounds as early as 7:15 in the morning so you have to wake up early. For the other supervisors, ask them what time usually they do rounds. Make sure you studied something beforehand as some of them will ask you questions randomly. That's what my other friends said to me, ahah so yeah. Good luck guys <3
