This semester, we have to complete 4 modules:
a) Tropical Medicine [TM]
b) Gastrointestinal Medicine and Hepatology [GI-HEP]
c) Reproductive, Endocrine, Genitourinary and Breast Medicine [REGUB]
d) Central Nervous System, Movement, Locomotive and Forensic Medicine [CNSLMF]
To be honest, it is going to be a very packed semester.
Nearly all the Tropical Medicine topics were squeezed into one single week - last week, to be exact. But I must admit that it was exhilarating, learning about all those bizarre creatures such as cestodes, nematodes, trematodes, plasmodia and understanding the mechanisms of dengue fever. However, my weekends have become so packed - reading material, lecture notes, supplementary exercises, case studies and all, that I think I may become cross-eyed later in the semester. But it will be fun, I am sure, once we've got the whole picture in mind.
Let me see.
I need to:
Finish studying TM, finalize the paper on restraints-usage among Klang Valley road users, finalize the IC3 guidebook, oversee the September-October projects pertaining to The PEN, complete the articles on Dengue and Ebola for the November-December issue, arrange interviews with lecturers for the Cutting Edge column, and revise my anatomy before CNSLMF dawns upon me. Oh the joy of being a medical student, forever busy without time to think about time-wasting nonsense.
Holidays over, work has started. but it ain't a sin to dream of such serene scenes
