:: Two Virtues October 30, 2007

Posted by Minci 先生 in Medical School.


In approaching ‘Medical Puberty’, I find that there are certain virtues in medicine that must be separated in ordinary lives. On top of my head, there’s 2 in particular;

  1. Patients LIE. Their relatives LIE.
    We nod our heads and listen attentively to what the patients have to say but in the back of our head, there’s this constant little voice that’ll say, ‘Save a little doubt for they may be exaggerating/ taking advantage of you/ mentally unwell/ confuse. Listen but search for supporting evidence to back up their story’.
    matilah if I don’t dissociate this from everyday life. Paranoid boley? All the ‘sangka baik terhadap orang’ would be gone.

  2. Expect the worst that could happen.
    In any presenting complaint, a workup has to be done to rule out all possible sinister scenarios.
    matilah pessimist.

Medical Puberty to me is that moment in time when medical students who were previously slackers or bonkers (like myself) …  all of a sudden become competent, reliable, mature and smart. Huhu.. bumpy road to get there.

cariklah. the latest season can be a bit absurd but the soap part is good.


it means something along the lines of not trusting people for their words as much. always being suspicious sort of thing.

Bak kata pepatah orang Asli Penan; ‘ Hope for The Best, Plan For The Worst’

Reading adiratna, I think I’d go for ‘Agi Idup Agi Nglaban’. Especially looking at Spiderman above 🙂

patient lie xpe, jgn doc lie udah lerrr…. x jgk, dua dua xleh lie, tp kalo patient lie, doc kenalah pandai detect. dan doc jgnlah mudah sgt wat conclusion. 2 minggu lps, aku pegi kinik (antara tmpt yg malas nak g), doc ni diagnose 3 orang patient x sampe 2 minit. yg lg 2 aku x th, yg aku tahu aku da salah diagnose, g tmpt len ckp skt len, amek ubat makan ubat 3 hari baek. tp minci doc yg baek, dan comel… mesti laris…
