- Between 10th and 11th grade, when it was necessary to choose repeaters, I decided to go to work with a friend's doctor. She worked in a cancer center as a surgeon in the department of abdominal surgery. I will not describe what kind of operation it was, but those six hours by the operating table flew by unnoticed. I decided that programming would wait - I want to be a surgeon. Yes, now I understand that I have chosen a not-so-simple profession, which is also low-paid in the ratio "labor - wages".
But time will put everything in its place.
I found the stimulus for study by chance. In fact, I terribly did not like the first two courses of honey. The most boring, but at the same time important items. As they say: without a foundation a house cannot be built.
And in order to somehow compensate for the routine, I went to wander in the evenings in the emergency hospital, near which I live to this day. There he met wonderful nurses in surgery and began to comprehend the basics of nursing. After six months of evening walks, I was able to do any manipulation with my eyes closed. Then came the third course. I realized that we need to communicate more with surgeons.
But things didn’t go beyond thoughts. The third course was difficult. Propaedeutics of internal diseases, surgery, pathology, pathophysiology and pharmacology: five bosses of medicine, fundamental subjects without which the doctor cannot take place. All the forces were devoted to their development, and I forgot about going to the BSMP (emergency medical hospital). Then there was the fourth course, we switched to clinical facilities (this means that now we studied not at the university, but directly at the hospitals).
There was not enough money, and I went to work as a nurse in the Department of General Surgery, the benefit of skills allowed. Then there was a terrible summer from the fourth year to the fifth, which I spent working day and night. It happened that I took three nights in a row. In the end, it came to the realization that in our countries, health workers are not respected and treated as servants. The incentive to learn has come to naught.
And I decided to make a channel in a telegram in order to glorify medicine with my own word and prove to myself, at least, that not everything is so bad in this profession. I devoted the entire fifth year to study, work, study, work - and so on in a circle. There were a lot of thoughts in my head, and I gave them a way out under the heading my notes, which over time became the most read on my channel. Long study? Not at all, consider that it is a prolonged childhood that allows you to more thoroughly prepare for adulthood and not make mistakes that you will regret in the future. Well, about salaries - I don’t even want to say anything.
Our doctors are very cool, and it’s a shame that their work costs so little. You would know how many talented minds flow abroad in search of a better life, where knowledge and skills are most valued.
Studying in honey is built very simply. Principle 3-3-1. Three years with books at the university, three years with books in hospitals and one year with books as an assistant doctor.
Medicine is very conservative. Sometimes there is nothing better than old classic books. But this applies to the first three courses. You see, it makes no difference what textbook to teach anatomy, histology, biochemistry and physiology: nature is not the A810le, new models of people do not come out every year. Our university is great, we have access to modern online libraries in Russian and English: the university pays for it - we use it.
In senior courses, we use the information that teachers give us, this applies to any modern approaches to treatment. The textbooks are modern, there are no problems with this. Univer spends a lot of money on modern literature. And in our case, you understand, it’s so expensive. In addition, we have our own online platform MOODLE, it was developed by the Australians, and our university bought the rights, and we use it.
This is a distance learning system: deans, departments, and the practice department are represented there. In fact, it’s such a closed cloud that replaces information stands at departments, plus there are articles and training materials written by our teachers, questions for exams and so on. If we talk about objects, then there is nothing superfluous. A doctor cannot learn one area and go to work. In medicine, everything is interconnected.
The only thing in the first courses was annoyed by the abundance of social and humanitarian subjects. History, political science and other sociology seemed outright nonsense, but now you understand that without this a person with a higher education cannot take place. Higher education for that and higher.
We have the whole learning process built specifically on evidence-based medicine. And teachers are its basis.
There is only one reason why, from time to time, some doctors hammer on the principle of evidence. This is money. When, suppose you are over 30, and you live with a cat in a rented apartment, why not do quackery. In general, all doctors should be guided by the principle of evidence-based medicine.
This year I switched to the sixth year.
Specialty chose, as you might have guessed, surgical. Who will I be? Time will tell. So far, the path to me lies only in general surgery (for those who do not know: these are appendicitis, hernias, gastrointestinal ulcers, and so on). Regret it Not at all. Look what I will sing in 2-3 years, hehe.
