i was 23 years old.

answering one of the puzzled reader's question here
on how do i managed to become a doctor at the age of 23...

well, nothing fancy , nothing amazing
just ran with the flow
a lot of my classmate managed to do so as well
here is the secret

i sat for my SPM at the age of 17 , same as other people
then by age of 18 , i got the offer to go oversea to study medicine
on my 18th birthday i flew abroad
started my first year ( pre med )
so , 1st year med - i was 19
2nd year med i was 20 ,
3rd year med school i was 21
4th year , i was 22
5th year - the final year i was 23

came back home to malaysia at the age of 23 , after a month resting at home...
then i got the offer to start my life as a houseman

next question.. what's the different between Houseman (HO ) and medical officer

a HO is actually not a registered doctor yet
just a training period
of 2 years
( yes , u do get ur UD41 grade as soon as u started - and a full UD41 salary as well )
in that training period - a houseman is protected by the hospital - should he did anything wrong
the law cant sent him to jail
anything he or she screwed up , the specialist in charge will be responsible
which explain why the houseman needs a lot of training

once  u finished ur housemanship
then u get ur full registration certificate from the medical association
then u become a real doctor
u will be called the medical officer by that time (MO)
u will get ur UD 44 grade as soon as u get ur full registration certificate
which means - u are on your own
u are responsible for everything u did
nobody will protect u if u screw up

so there you go
