About moi

I’m a first, second, third year  postgraduate medical student in Australia. Most of the students in my course have done some form of science  during their undergrad degrees. I have a half-arsed degree in Advertising/Film + Television production. This made some aspects of medicine, uh, difficult.

I barely passed the science component of first year, but, on the upside, I became very acquainted with the process of post-exam reviews in important people’s offices. However, I did ok with the patient interaction because after all, I spent 7 years waitressing and making coffee. If you can get over someone yelling ” I ASKED FOR A FUCKEN MUGACHINO NOT A LARGE CAPPUCINO!” at 5:30 in the morning, then you’ll be fine at patient interaction.

Soooooo, I guess this means, if you ever have a consult with me in the future we’ll have a great chat, and hopefully you’ll feel like someone cares about your problem/ache/pain etc. I’ll take an awesome history and then refer you immediately to an amazing specialist who didn’t have to ask their anatomy tutor to clarify why the blood goes through the lungs.

    Hey that’s awesome you did Advertising/Film & Television! I did a major in the History of Art, and for the week and a half I was in medical school (I’m on medical leave right now), the science was very, very challenging. More so than all my fellow majors in biomedical engineering/chemistry/human biology, etc. I’m glad to see that there is hope for us 🙂

      Allison, there is hope! have you seen how beautiful Netter’s & Gray’s images are? I bought Netters Atlas purely for the aesthetics. The science remains challenging until clinical years, when all that horrible microbiology and pathophysiology makes way for clinical practice. Then you’ll have it in the bag 🙂

    I do have Netters, it’s awesome! I don’t know how people learned anatomy without his drawings. He’s so talented.
    I’m also very much looking forward to the clinical years… thank you! I’m glad to know I don’t have to be a scientific genius to be a doctor.
