Community medicine rural postings is something which every Intern in Ramaiah waits for...
especially when you are away from all these...
- writing case sheets and discharge summaries
- writing notes
- filling up requisition forms
- collecting investigations from the lab[the sample for testing which is not yet sent..and you end up wondering why reports have not come!]
- accompanying patients for ultrasounds,references,ct scan and x rays
- seeing cases in the casualty at 3am in the night ..with patients saying "i think i have a mild sore throat Doctor since 1 week,it might be swine flu,i just wanted to get myself checked"...thanks to the media hype...cmon...we are humans wanting sleep too![BTW there are more people dying from viral fever and thrombocytopenia and we end up helplessly sending them back to other hospitals due to lack of beds!!
not that the above list of work is not meant to be done by Doctors but at the end of the day all that we end up doing is this!The learning process during houseman ship stays far from reach...sadly!
And when you get an opportunity to get away from all this, who doesn't want it???
