Christian Fellowship Farewell 2010

Time flies.... It's like yesterday and now I am going to graduate soon. Pray for me for excelling in my PRO-EXAM. Thanks all the brothers and sisters who organized the farewell for us. I personally very touched by you all.

I still remember when I first come to USMKK in 2005, I really don't really like here. It's hot, boring and far from home. Years after years, my impression on USMKK changes. It's nice. USMKK did bring me a lot of sweet memories. Too many to share if I want to list out one by one. But, the most important thing happened in this five years is I have learned to be a better man. I mean better, thus I wish during working I can even better. Hahaha.

Many new friends I met in this 5 years. Some of them really means a lot to me in USMKK. Doctors here are mostly nice too... I'm going to miss you all. Definitely, I will come back for my master program if there's a chance.

Lastly, wish you all in USMKK all the best and enjoy your life in USMKK. Keep in touch!!!!
I Love you all too!!!!

Orthopaedic Posting


It's proud and lucky to be posted in HUSM Orthopaedi department. This department considered to be the best orthopaedic referal center in Malaysia with multiple complicated cases come from every corner in the nation. In 1995, Dr Alan Graham Apley had visited our school department as a examiner for master examination. According to senior, Dr Halim in spine team is one of his candidate that time and Prof. Zulmi title was given by Dr Apley as well. Hahaha.... legend.

Well, let's start talking about my posting from 28 February 2010 to 4 March 2010. Just 3 weeks time which consider too short for me to revise back all the thing I had learn during 4th year. However, I did go through the posting safely.... cukup makan. Hehehe..... Orthopaedic consider to be second in my master list. I feel myself got a lot of chances to learn during orthopaedic posting both in 4th and 5th year. In term of teories, I learn a lot from the specialist during ward round and clinic. For practical skill, undeniable I learn most of my surgical skill in this posting. About 70% of the surgery I assisted happen here. Suturing, cutting, tying, retracting, screwing............ whatever HO's skill, I learned here. I still remember during my 4th year posting, there is a HO who newly posted to orthopaedic ward, she don't know how to scrub in the OT. Thus, Dr. Liau asked me to taught the HO to scrub..... Hahaha.... medical student better than HO........ USM really APEX!

For this short 3 week posting, I get to assist in 2 operation which is femur plating and secondary wound closure. I did the secondary wound suturing and this is the longest wound i ever closure. My speed improve compare to last year. Yeah. Thus until now, I had assisted in 16 operations as a medical student. I think I should be the student who assisted most operation in this batch. Hehe.... Really enjoy the operation.
MCQ Examination was terrible in this posting, it is so hard to score because of the 1 point deduction system. For my short case, I got Baker's cyst.... well it's not too good and not too bad... Hahaha. Here, Specialist, master students, HO and nurses are all so nice compared to other posting. Sincerely, this is the posting i will grade to be the best posting among all.

See.. I didn't cheat... This is the Apley's photo in the department room.

This is the longest suturing I done in my student life in HUSM.

Surgery Posting........ My favourite!

From the beginning of 2010, i started  my posting in surgery department. Today is the last day of the posting... kind of feeling sad... I am definitely going to miss this posting. One thing i hate the most is the 90 short cases logbook in 5 weeks time.... make we all gone crazy la....

I started my posting in HKB (ward 28,29&30). Posting there was very tiring (as usual because cannot sleep in lunch break... hahhaa). However, i did learn a lot from the surgeon there. (esp Mr imisari, Mr Tarmizi, Mr Othman, and Dato Hassin) Especially for the  breast and  thyroid disease, i really learn a lot from  Mr imisari. He really taught us many clinical approach and  management. We got a lot of teaching and seminar there, that makes our life there was busy. Someone say the surgeon there misuse the teaching and seminar session by making it many session just to earn RM200 per session. For me, it's ok... as  long as i learn something... hehhee. One thing i regret a lot in HKB posting is i only manage to get one chance to join OT there. I am really the OT man..... means i can't survive without entering OT... hahaha
See we all lepaking in one of the pondok near the hospital to wait for our campus bus to come and  bring us  back to campus.

Three biggest in the group. Hahaha. Don't look down on us. The one holding the drip tiang is our future orthopaedic surgeon. The one on my right might be the future Menteri Kesihatan o... Hahahaha

Start from left: Me, Azihan, Faiz

From Left: Me, Chee How, Azihan, Faiz. And the front one u know who he is.... Orthopaedic Surgeon, Mr Khai.

They got their name tag on.. No need to introduce.

Back in HUSM, suddenly i feel so relax because many class cancel and postponed. hahaha.. perhaps lecturer here dun earn RM200 like the surgeons in HKB... so they dun bother about the teaching (just kidding la... they are busy most of the time). I seldom see specialist round in HUSM except Dr Leow... He come even earlier than HO sometimes to do work eventhough he is a surgeon now. He consider one of my idol specialist in surgery department. I should learn his attitude when i start working. During the peroid of posting, there were many registers. Thus, we, medical student always "kena tembak". It is really good with this  "tembak", because we learn a lot of exam question through their mouth. Among the register, undoubtly Dr Azhar is my favourite. He is so knowledgable and so cute. Hahaha.

We are having seminar with Dr Ashraf (urologist) regarding urotrauma.

My groupmate, siew chen is sleeping in the seminar?

Dr Ashraf

Sadly to say that during 3 week in HUSM surgery department, i only managed to scrub in for a operation  (total mastectomy for phyllodes tumour). Hai........ until now, I already assisted 14 times in operation... Hopefully got  more chance during orthopaedic posting. I really enjoy in the operation. Many of my friends asking me why i so interested in the operation which look so boring. I can't explain to them, but it's really interesting to me and make me feel so meaningful everytime after the operation i assisted. By stand so near to the patient on table, I got to see the real anatomy of human and sometimes just even a simple work like retracting, cutting suture or suction also make me feel i am like a surgeon...  hahahha.. Delusion. So far, the  greatest thing i done in OT is closing the surgical wound during orthopaedic posting last year. Thanks Dr liau for giving me the chance. Many surgeons always say I oledi awarded for  FRCS  (fellowship of retractory and cutting suture) hahahaha....

End posting exam was so sudden to me where I only know i exam time on the day of  exam (clinical exam). Basically, I think i try my best throughout the posting and exam. Although i not manage to finish my essential surgery, but i think this is the book i read the most... hahahha.

In future, I think i only got chance to post in surgery department again when i am a HO. I gonna miss it.... Bye bye dear surgery department!!!!
