Love people and think less in Latin
Why do people become doctors when there are quieter professions with less responsibility? What problems arise in the learning process, and how do young specialists manage to stay in the profession and not leave it? What’s the hardest part about honey, and how could the curriculum be changed to make it more productive?
The story is told by those who know this area from the inside – medical students and famous doctors who have already taken place in the profession.
In medicine, it is always important to distinguish between theory and practice. If we talk about theory, then I think that honey should not go to those who do not want or do not know how to deeply immerse themselves in the problem, as well as to those who do not like people, relatively speaking.
Medical education differs from any other in the colossal amount of information that needs to be remembered. In addition, this is where critical thinking skills are important. Doctors cannot go anywhere without them. For example, I don’t know if economists need it, because they are engaged in more mundane things, and doctors have to make decisions every day that affect the patient’s quality of life.
On the other hand, it is impossible to single out some kind of super competence, which is inherent only in doctors. For example, communication skills will be useful both for those who work in the office and for the same workers in the tourism sector. Speaking of communication, by the way, I would say that this is one of the main competencies of a good doctor. If he does not know how to talk to his patient, that is, to collect anamnesis, then how can he make a diagnosis? Although our doctors somehow succeed. I do not know, however, what conclusions can be drawn based on the information received from the silence with the patient.
It also seems to me that it is not so important to pass biology for admission to a medical school. I’m not sure if it has anything to do with whether he becomes a good doctor or not. There is a lot of biology in honey itself, without it the future doctor will not be left for sure. Here is chemistry – yes, without fundamental knowledge in the study of medicine in any way. And I would replace biology with physics, simply because biology tests are a huge amount of unnecessary information. For example, a future doctor will teach anatomy regardless of how he knew it at school.Поділитися цим:
