Day 5 And It's Still Hot!

Haha Liyann says she's not used to me not updating this blog regularly. But so far I'm not missing it. Actually too tired/busy to miss it! :P

Today is day 5 I'm here in seremban and I'm relishing every minute of it (but spare me the hot weather pls, coz it's killing me!) Am learning a lot of stuff that I normally wudn't be able to learn in the past few months. And I'm very grateful that I'm allowed this opportunity. =)

Let's see. I learnt abt fundoscopy yesterday, heart murmurs today plus a lot of other random topics. But I think one of the most important skills I learnt is organization of thoughts. Personally, I think it's really important and it's certainly a shame that it's something rarely emphasized in phase 1. Sound clinical reasoning is really essential! I hope I'll be able to cultivate a good one in the near future.

Okay, signing off now. I know, this post is shorter than my usual ones, but hey the heat is killing me and I need a rest before going for a jog later!

yeah can you believe it? But I really need to start having a healthy lifestyle that drs are so gung ho in advising others about. lol.

Ah, we did fundoscopy today as well!! So embarassing.. I look in the wrong aperture.. sakai betul.

haha a few friends and i did the very same mistake a few months back! so funny!

anyway, i think what they taught in sem5 is not clinically relevant/accurate. wait til u start clinicals! omg the explanation by the lecturer rawrs!

Yeah, I think the early exposure to clinicals at this stage.. probably not very relevant yet. I know they intend to do good to us, but quite drained out at times. Better to buck up more on theory part.

Haha...heat is good. Learn to love heat now because you'll be missing it soon... I'm craving for a tan...I miss the sun!! Sorry if I sound like a caveman or rather, woman, coz it's like 15 degrees every day. Countdown: 30 more days to summer!!!! :D

lynn> yeah i guess it's good to concentrate on the theory part. it's really important as well.

what i meant was that clinical corelation shld be taught when we are starting history taking... good to do it the proper way from the start!

fireheart> lol. the weather in msia is changing ya know. first it rains nonstop for days, causing floods. then it's superbly hot till can die sort. arrgh!! i still prefer cold over heat haha!
