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


None.


"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.


dattebayo, bitch.


i was in hospital for a week after a surgery, don't defend wat u don't know.

First of all, how in the world can u say that applies to every freaking doctor and nurses out there. If that were the case, we wouldn't have doctors or nurses in hospitals, we might have lawyers treating patients.

Do u even now how many surgery and diagnosis are preformed everyday, and how many are reported for malpractice. Go sit in hospital, count how different patients you see in a day and how many case of malpractice took place. One rotten apple doesn't give u the right throw away a basket of apples. Not all doctors are the same, there are some a**holes, but they do not represent the vast majority who are genuinely decent doctors.

calling some one a bitch, isn't ownage, it just means you have got the intelligence finish off your agruement in a mature manner

Two years ago, I was also in a hospital for 2 weeks after a surgery from a gunshot wound. That's why I know.

I did not say all doctors. Yes, I forgot to add the word "some" doctors. Not all doctors are bad, just like cops are.


I just had a physical exam last week with a doctor. lol. The doctor felt my radial pulse with his thumbs, which is wrong assessment by the way.
Why use 2 fingers not a thumb to check a pulse? As we know, your thumb has a very strong pulse in itself so it would be very misleading to your pulse readings.

I did not claim any ownage. I just like adding "dattebayo, bitch" at the end of my posts today.
It's a catchphrase, like wrestler's do: "You can't see me!!"
It's like the "Gets" guy Japanese comedian. =P
He says "Gets" all the time.


dattebayo, bitch.

sweet! where did the bullet enter?

my bad, i might have misread "some doctor" , i agree he should have checked with two thumbs, my GP types with one finger, those are the "mistake prone doctor" my GP definitely is ( proved him wrong 3times)

and no, i haven't heard of the japanese comedian, i don't understand japanese anyway. i've seen dattebayo few times but not with bitch next to it

I'm not sure about the rest of the world but in New Zealand you will sign up as a recruit and do you three month basic training down in Waiouru. You then do 2 years of core training down in Birnham.

If you want to join as an officer of a medical unit you have to have the medical qualifications before joining the army and doing your 1 year officer training.
