Not everyone can be a doctor, which is why this noble profession is only left for the great minds and people who have the heart to take all those bloody, vomiting and unsanitary patients who expose them to diseases, some of them being deadly. The Hippocratic Oath demands selflessness and commitment and this is the first thing you learn on your first day of medical, it is either you are in or out.
It is a grueling ride from innocent graduate and intern to being self-conscious of what people will think about you. Therefore, it calls for nerves of steel and emotional intelligence that is off the charts. Here are a few things that qualify you the title doctor:
- Brilliant mind
It takes a brilliant individual to master all the diseases in the world, their symptoms, and treatment. Doctors have to have the heart and the mind for it and a drive to succeed is their only focus. After close to 8 years studying you finally get a hospital that would offer you an internship and you start on this career. It takes a wonderful mind to make the diagnosis and finally remember the medication, but more importantly to get all that right.
Like everything hard, it needs a decision, commitment and these two will lead you to success. You need to decide if you want to attend the class before you submit the registration papers. Get an orientation from someone in the faculty or someone who is already working there and ask what it takes to go to medicine school.
Equipment such as AED trainers teach the student how to deal in real life emergencies, when to use them and how best to use them. Just like everything else, the equipment is clearly necessary because the interns get to have a feel of what the real moments would be like. This training equipment includes cadavers of people who died and donated their bodies for the good of science.
Practical in this case means getting the best of the best in good shape by offering better opportunities and difficult situations to make them sharp. It is important to ensure that real life drills are a matter of life of death. This will keep you thinking and on your toes. You have no option but to keep getting better all the time. As you practice, it is vital to learn the new and upcoming methods of carrying out procedures and some surgery.
