the hot issue
regarding the "hot issue "
which has been circulating in the newspaper lately
i choose to keep silence until the "hot issue" get cold a bit before i come out with my opinion
definitely not wanting my statement to be in the newspaper or anything
the hot issue was " russian medical student graduate are not competent enough to practice as doctor in malaysia"
well , honestly and personally , i'm getting sick of this issue..."
one day at the hospital
i was hanging out with a group of medical officers...
and someone brought up the houseman issue...
one thing led to another...
the issue about the russian university graduate housemen (RUGH) came out..
then... the started to complain ... this and that about RUGHs
i just kept my mouth shut and just listening...
as they were busy complaining..
one of them noticed i was being quite for quite sometimes...
until one my colleague decided to asked me...
"hannan ... where did u graduated ?
I answered spontaneously " moscow "
and he was like " whatttt?"
i just smiled....
then one of them ..." i guess , not all RUGHs are as bad as the mention in the newpapers.... must be isolated cases "
" maybe... maybe not " i replied ...
honestly , i have nothing much to say to my colleague
i just let my action at work speak for me...
of course and definitely ,
if u graduated from foreign universities..
and u come back and work in Malaysia ,
the system is different', a lof of differences indeed
during my first few months as houseman , i was struggling to adapt
but it happened to all overseas students... not just RUGHs
day in , day out at work as houseman ... u'll get better...
so, why the RUGHs issue become so intensified?
i reckon it is because , lately there are too many RUGHs just started working
hence , for these RUGHs to become RUGMO ( medical officers )
for sure they will bump into so many problems and obstacles.
therefore .... the RUGHs are in the spotlight at the moment
it's up to the individual..
it doesnt matter where u graduated..
it doesnt matter who's ur father...
it doesnt matter how rich u are
( it does matter if u are good looking and pretty thou : p )
in the end of the day ,
what matter the most are...
ur willingness the work hard,
ur honesty in work ,
ur smile to ur patient and to ur colleague...
that will make u a good doctor
