I’m entering my second proper week of medical school. Wow! I’m so useless! I’m about to start my first semester which is all about the life cycle; aging, pregnancy etc. Why haven’t I learnt CPR? I thought that would be like my first lecture, and that I’d be able to save lives now… Maybe I’ll have to wait a few years :P. Everything seems amazing so far, I’ve met so many great people, and my flat mates are all super friendly and super supportive, so I’m very lucky. My PBL group is pretty sweet too, there is a girl called (new pseudonym alert) Dr Belfast who seems pretty nice… Hurm! Its all moving so fast… I’ve been here two weeks already ( the drunken revelry of freshers seems a distant memory). I’m excited and nervous!
AHAHA! You no longer follow the humble ramblings of a meer “medical applicant” OH NO! You now follow a full on medical student. Yes, you heard me right, on Thursday the 16th of August I was confirmed at my medical school, I’m in - I’ve made it!
I will be starting mid-september, and therefore Dr. Britain is actually on his way to becoming a doctor!
After all the trials and tribulations, failures and successes, countless hours of study, i’ve done it. I can’t believe it, I’m ecstatic, i cannot wait to start.
One step closer to being JD…
With all the exams out of the way I thought I would watch through Scrubs again, I’m about halfway through series 3 now and it’s just reminding me A) What a great programme it is B) I am JD and C) how much I want to study medicine. I reccommend it to everyone, seriously people watch this thing!
J.D AKA John Dorian is a fictional character from the TV program Scrubs - but you knew that right!?
When/If I become a doctor, i would like to be him, his bedside manner, his excellent clinical skills, its just what i’d like to be like.
