i’ve just been told that my life will proceed like this:
2 years as house officer
2 years compulsory service as medical officer
application for master’s degree only after 3 completed years
4 years in master’s program
1 year gazettement
4 years subspecialty training
…and then there’s the option of taking professional exams instead. either way, i will be at least 34 by the time i become a specialist. if i become a specialist. if i’m even gonna last in the profession that long.
at the moment, i find myself looking for the fastest way up and not for a passion that can drive me further. when i think about the things i am actually interested in, i can’t figure out how everything can, you know, happen.
anyway, i have to go for yet another lecture.
