Psychiatry Posting

4 weeks? No, we got only 3 weeks as we had one week to get our butt lying at home! :)

Honestly, i was quite excited to enter this posting. It grabbed my interest the most compared to other postings so far. You don't study all those boring facts like you study in other posting. You don't clerk for history, you are just listening to stories. That's why i love clerking the patients in this posting lol :) Furthermore, you really have a lot more free time to do the things u like. Me? I finished 2 novels in 3 weeks time and watched a lot of doraemon lol haha.

Overall, it's quite free compared to other postings. As this is not the most important posting for our lives later as a doctor (unless you choose the psychiatry as specialty), doctor won't be expecting us to know too much about the knowledge here except those important ones. The doctors were so willing to teach us also. They discussed with us about the patients, asked for our opinions and listened to what we said. It made me feel like we were being appreciated. The leader also done a great job in managing the classes throughout the posting. Good job bro!

Enjoy the psychiatric posting if you haven't been through it. It's gonna to be happy posting!
