Ya always rmb. The more you study the better, the stronger your cv.
Try to publish more.

Phd is now like the degrees of 1990s.
Degrees today is like the diplomas of 1990s.

In academic medicine they want a degree (aka phd in today context) - and lots of publications. This is the only way to survive.

Im a yllsom mbbs (degree aka diploma in today context), quite good for frontline patient care and absolutely terrible for academic research.

Pay wise will be the same. But academic medicine, you get the prestige.

Just curious, how often do doctors take MC? Or are they even allowed to? Especially HOs and MOs

I didnt take a single day as a HO or as a MO.
Because i didnt want my co-HO or co-MO to suffer.

Legit mcs are okie. But if u take for fun, then co-MO will need to do double the work.

I think the MC taking culture is different between departments and disciplines.

Those HO/MO (no HO) type departments in hospital where the MOs function as HOs, and is small where they do calls 1 in 3, they hardly ever take MC unless really dying. Cos then their fellow MO will be doing 1 in 2 call to cover them.

Meanwhile at Polyclinic the MOs will say things like "we are entitled to X days of MC a year. Better take all. It is entitlement. Otherwise lose those days off for what? Dont get paid if dont take the days off"

Red face Dating a MO

Non-medic, dating a MO who is looking to specialise in a highly demanding field. appreciate his public-serving efforts but he doesnít eat well, sleep well or take care of his health (from this forum it seems absolutely normal, but nevertheless hats off to you guys). works from 6.30am-7pm, admin work sometimes keep him at work til 8-9pm. Doesnít eat regularly while on call until i send food over (rarely). Worries about setting up a comfortable life, but also wants to provide.

As a spouse, anything I can do to improve his crappy work stress? Iím also in a highly demanding field myself (so I donít mind not meeting, not texting much/ DINK and spend a lot of my time studying for my own career ). Specifically during your HO days, what has your spouse done for you that you appreciate most/ made your life better?

Sorry for ranting, hope everyone and their families are well!

Hi everyone,

I need some answer to an urgent question I have. Could I ask, as a doctor, am I allowed to put my hand on xmm chest (under the shirt) to check their heartbeat?

Asking for a friend.

Thank you!
