COMMON SHORTCOMINGS OF HOUSEMEN
- Poor skills in history-taking, physical examination, time management, ethics and conduct
- Poor core knowledge; insufficient knowledge of basic problems and current management based on clinical evidence
- Poor attitude and lack of bedside manners
Because of these troublesome situations, its really sad to know that some of the fresh doctors are retained in their housemen training postings for years, some even up to 6 years, because they cannot meet the standards.The compulsory housemenship is 2 years.
The above circumtances really made the Malaysian Medical Council worried.
So, for all the medical students out there, who will be a doctor one day including me..insyaAllah...we should be the doctors that could fulfill all the standards needed by the Malaysian Medical Council..its not only about to fulfill the requirements but it is also imperative to make us a good doctor in all areas..
Just remember if our intention to be a doctor is for Allah ,everything will be smooth..insyaAllah
i summon all the doctors wannabe..Show the world the new good generation of doctors!
" To be a good doctor it is not how much knowledge u have...it is clinical acumen and the skills developed in treating patients"
P/S:" Medicine is not black or white but lots of grey in between and in order to identify the grey areas, the only way is the more u see, the more u do, the more u understand"
