We've been waiting for this moment for 2 years.. the mythical and mysterious third year of studying medicine.
In my country, by what you are called, depends on the year you are currently on:
a) first year -> Shit
b) second year -> Mr/Mrs Shit
c) third year -> Student
d) fourth year -> Mr/Mrs Student
d) fifth year -> Doctor
e) sixth year -> Mr/Mrs Doctor
So I am a Student now :) Honestly, it can be felt..for example during the first lesson of Introduction to Pediatrics when professor wanted to ask us about something, she called us by "DOCTOR X will you tell me...?"
I am taking following courses during this semester :
*Introduction to Internal Medicine
*Introduction to Pediatrics
*Introduction to Onkology
The most interesting subject is, of course, the Introduction to Internal Medicine. For the first time during our 'studying of medicine' we have a contact with a patient AS HER/HIS DOCTOR!
But for now we are obliged only to check patient's blood pressure. Why not physical exam? It depends on the course, but as far as I am concerned, this thursday my group will percuss and auscultate the thorax of our patients for the first time :) Can't wait.
This course also helps us in realising it's not just fun anymore...it's our future life.
I'm sorry that this note is that short... I'm kind of tired :)
I hope something worth describing will happen soon!
