No worries, I feel blessed being able to share these kind of experience to other people. Sometimes, people think that just because you’re in the medical field, you’re rich and happy, when this is not always the case!
Yes, and as my programme was only 2 years, it was very fast paced and intense. We only had 6 weeks off in each year, so we had a lot of time in a clinical setting. MD students in the UK usually go through 4-6 years, and they do the clinical rotations in the last 2 years, so sometimes a PA student will experience more of these situations compared to a 1st-3rd year MD student. I guess it’s better to experience these kind of things ASAP.
Oooooh, that’s very interesting. That “sense of neutrality” is definitely what I feel most of the time when facing these type of situations. I also agree with the video → “the mindset is a skill: it can be taught and learned”. It’s definitely what I’ve been trying to accomplish these days. The more control you have with your mind, the better you can live your life.
