Medicine World: Reality with Medical Career
It is the dream of every parent to have a medic in their lineage. Have you ever thought of what it entails to become a renowned medical professional? It is easier said than done. Learning human physiology is not a walk in the park. At the same time, the fact that you can save someone’s life makes it more thrilling and fulfilling.
The medicine world is one of the exciting yet complex profession. If you want to get a career with more introvert then it is this profession. This is people who have no time even for themselves. They are always on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can never plan with then if, they are your spouse. They are ever n call if not attending an emergency then on call giving a prescription or a medical advice. Although the ay package for the profession is also fulfilling, it reaches a point where money is not really a guiding principle to your happiness.. Your “me” time away from your career is even better.
When studying at the degree level, it is one course that involves both practical and theory work. The time is never enough for medical students. I remember when I had to undergo through an emergency caesarian section, one of the students was ever by my bedside taking my history and writing medical notes from the time I was admitted to the time I was discharged, which was almost after three weeks. I wondered if this girl even ad time t attend classes. Little did I know I was part of her exams until when she had to do an hour medical presentation before the doctors (who happen to be the lecturers)
On a good note, this is a call rather than a profession. Imagine spending all this time and effort on a patient and finally ends up dying. You have no option but to let them go. This really needs a strong heart.
What of being called ” a boss” or a “consultant? of course, it is fulfilling. It boosts your confidence to always try and give the best advice. In this profession, you will have a chance to meet critically ill patients who look upon you as their only hope. You have to do your best.
This is a practical knowledge that you have only two options in school, it is either you pass or fail. One of my lecturers used to say, it’s either “you know” or “you do not know” You cannot afford to gamble with peoples bodies. You must just do the right thing. The reward for all this effort is a hefty package with additional benefits from your employer. You can as well become an entrepreneur as long as you have a practicing license. You have to be keen when pursuing this route because of diverse policies from country to country.
In addition, you have all the emotional, spiritual, psychological and financial satisfaction when you handle this career with all the professionalism it deserves. Similarly, when handling emergencies like natural disasters, it is the time you can really hate the career. Look at the bigger picture.
