What Medical career would you consider to do?
Posted 1/15/09 , edited 1/15/09

btw it's a great show.

Sorry, i could only included a fraction of the list of careers. So if there are any other medical career you're planning to do, please include it in a reply. I'm just asking out of pure curiosity, for further info I'm planning to be a GP or Surgeon, but thats will be after clinic school 6years time

best of luck to anyone applying for medicine soon or in the future, that will include me as well

To Mods, guys tell me if this thread is in the wrong forum, i'll move it to the correct forum

I choose none of the above on your poll.


"In 1999 the Institute of Medicine (IOM) revealed an epidemic of medical errors in the United States, an epidemic that injures 1 in every 25 hospital patients and is responsible for tens of thousands of deaths each year. Medical errors are more deadly than breast cancer, motor vehicle accidents, or AIDS. The IOM report, To Err Is Human: Building a Safer Health System, reported that medical errors cost the economy as much as $29 billion each year (IOM, 1999)."

so? mate, it wouldn't affect me one bit if a patient died in my surgery. It takes nerves of steel to be a surgeon, medicine is not a 100% successful applied science. Reflect on this, one may die today,but ten will live tomorrow, because other doctors will learn from your mistake.

I know it's not 100% successful. But mistakes in medical is a downhill battle.
It's not going to be only doctor's fault when something bad happen. Sometimes nurses are the ones that suffer the most in court and the doctors themselves abandon them.
Who's the last one who keep in touch with the patients?
Nurses do.
Doctors can prescribe any medications and wrong dosages to their patients with no care in the world because they know that the medications will end up to the nurses. And the nurses are the last medical personnel who will handed down the medications to their patients.

When something happens, the nurses end up on court. The doctors can easily be blameless by stating "the nurse did not check the medications and clarify me about it."
Basically, you can't depend each other [doctors, nurses, etc] on the medical field. You have to make sure that the one who went ahead and check the patient first did not mess up, so when they finally shift the responsibility to you, what you do to the patient is totally your doing.

Unless the patient is terminal.

Your quote: "Reflect on this..."


Have u watch one of the episodes in Scrubs where "the doctors only spend 5 minutes with their patients, then, voom.... they go out the door again"?

Experiencing first hand for yourself being a real patient in a real hospital [not a sitcom one] will make you go wonder.
I do.
