Of Fourth Year

Fourth Year hit me in the face.

I wish I could say it was a KO but sadly, I’m still in the ring and still trying to somehow survive. My first rotation is community medicine, so we basically have a lot of trips (one every week) that we have to do some sort of assignment on. Initially I planned on typing out my assignment (it was a piece of reflective writing on the entire trip) but I don’t think I’m going to be getting that essay back any time soon. If I do get it back, I will definitely come back and edit this post.

Till then, you can look at this pictures.

The first trip was to a Rural Health Center. It’s basically a health center which is slightly bigger than a basic health unit. There were dispensaries for medicines, a male doctor (who wasn’t actually a doctor), two female doctors (one of which was actually a dentist) and several health workers who also conducted the EPI program. EPI stands for Expanded Program of Immunization.

Here’s my class! or rather, 1/5th of it.

The second trip was to the National Institute of Health.

hello this is fake

this is… i think this is real.

I realize this was more of a photo-diary post, but I hope you guys enjoyed looking at the pictures!

  1. Wow, this was neat! Some of those jars though lol.. What's the story on the items/substances in them? Are they an informational display of some kind, or are they there just for kicks? (From your "sera processing lab" pic, I'm guessing they're displays to tell about related treatments/processes?)

    It was cool to see inside some of your 4th year! 😀 Bet those trips are interesting. Probably exhausting in the end, but interesting. Good job, and good luck, to you and the rest of your class!

  2. I am so proud of you for making it to fourth year! Also, I love the pictures of the jars. They're pretty normal yet weird and creepy enough to make for great props in a horror movie. They'd look so awesome in a horror anthology.

  3. Congratulations on making it to fourth year. The photos were incredibly interesting. I love hearing about med school–and schooling in general–experiences in other countries.
