ophthalmology posting + community eye service

It's was only a 3 weeks posting, but we learned a lot from it. As this posting was quite organized, we really could benefit a lot from it even though sometimes it was quite hectic. Doctors here was super nice. I could see they really put efforts in teaching us.


One thing i loved very much about it was the on-call section here was actually similar to clinical teaching. We didn't need to clerk or cover any case. All we needed to do was just go to the ward and sit down and listen to the doctors asking us questions and teach us something. Moreover, the duration was super short! We might need to go on-call at 2pm but it ended at 3pm. Wow another day for free!

After exam, i went to Secret Recipe with my groupmates. It's actually good to have this kind of sections as it strengthens the bonds among us. Sometimes you need friends in your clinical years, it will be definitely very difficult for u to survive by handling everything alone (i'm not saying it's impossible, but i prefer to study with friends)..We chatted for almost 2 hours. Nice chat.


On the next day after exam, we went to Kampung Pulau Pisang for community eye service. Basically we invited the villagers, took a short history & perform a simple eye examination & fundoscopy (not really done as their eyes were not dilated & the sunlight was too strong) & we got to decide whether to discharge this patient or refer it to doctor for further management.

We spent 3 hours there. After that, we had a lunch over there too. Later, we departed again back to USM. Great experience!

Thanks a lot to the doctors for organizing it. It was really a precious experience because we didn't just attached to the hospital & clinics but also have the chance to serve the community & mingled with them.Part of my heart really wished that i could have more time to walk around in the village.



Another posting had ended. Gonna start busy & get serious with my next & other coming postings already as i did quite bad in this posting :( Awaiting for another BBQ section of group 4 tomorrow :D

These are the grammar errors. Each statement consists of wrong and correct sentence. Hope you enjoy your BBQ section tomorrow and enjoy the fun but BEWARE of the danger. There was an incident of drowning at the waterfall before. So, be careful when you are playing around.
