2 What Kind Of Doctor You Want To Be?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

This questions keeps singing in my head. Still I don't know what kind of doctor I want to be or should I be. Being a doctor is tough especially when being a specialist in any critical specialities as Obstetric and Gynaecology, Cardiology and Surgery. One of the biggest concerns is time. Do I just want to be in the hospital serving physically unhealty people all day? When to serve people outside the hospital? 

I can't merge those two groups of people, in the hospital and outside the hospital. The population going to hospitals is too small and most of the problem don't originate from these people. Since I am always taught to directly serve people in the society, I just can't imagine how to do so when being inside the hospital most of the time.

Of course serving sick people is a very undeniable noble job. Many hadith telling us to visit sick people and give them present. Their prayers are very precious. However, our deen doesn't teach us to just do good deeds but to do the most important one. The government is not doing its job well, social problems are saturating and they badly need a guide. I can play my role in the hospital, my other colleagues will do the rest. Will that sufficient?

This thing bothers me quite hard. The journey of searching the ultimate and productive way to serve the society is an endless job. Current Mursyidul Am is a veterinarian, not far from my future career and he did very well in his life. The conflict between being a doctor and lack of chance of serving society is due to lack of understanding the thariq amal. I do and always believe that medicine is the best field for me. The challenge is to figure out the best way to contribute through this noble field.

0 Adapting

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

One-week travel with Ust Fadzil feels like living 10 years more. He always had something to tell us. From the first time he joined tarbiyah till he is right now. And the best part is regarding business! Indeed, we don't need to do much mistakes nor trial and error. What we need is to learn from others experience so that we can do much better from them.

All of sudden, when I went back home, I felt like being someone else. I just couldn't have the same language as they had. Conversations with them were just like talking to new people.

I need to adapt the new language I have right now.

1 To Learn Is More Important Than Being Perfect

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

At the end of the day, what helps us the most is what we learn, not the result. In fact, mistake usually plays a better teacher than being correct all the time. Just read the stories of great people. Most of them, all of them, actually did mistakes much more than we do before becoming what they are today. What determines a legend is what happens post-mistakes.

Few days back, we had a group assignment presentation. Sadly, we did something not related to the title given, early diagnosis of primary open angle glaucoma (POAG). What we did instead was typical diagnosis of POAG. I might be the one first to be blamed, as the role of referring the doctor, Dr Ahmed El Sawy, was on my shoulder but I did not do it well enough.

The head of department of department 12 of Ophthalmology, Dr Khalid seemed to not accepting our presentation. He even asked our presenter to stop if the presentation did not corresponding to the title. Things happened and life goes on.

The doctors have my full respect! They have taught us to be precise in understanding and delivering informations, and to always refer to professional, doctor it is, before reaching a definite conclusion. Internet is not the ultimate teacher when you have great doctors just before you.

Ophthalmology lecture is over. End round exam is 4 days ahead. I really love this subject, the professors, doctors, nurses, patients, and everything in it. See you again El-Ramad!

A qoute from Dr Ahmed Abdullah keeps dancing in my head, "To learn is more important than being perfect".

Please pray for us for the upcoming exam. Thank you.
