Hectic....and crowded!

Salam to all. My life here at IMS-MSU Bangalore continue to be a hard one. After saying goodbye to my seniors who had passed their final exam and leaving behind Bangalore for good, I am terrified to know that I am now 'the' senior in the college. I know that this is the moment where I'm going to be tortured, to be mad at, and to be watched 24/7 by the doctors. I am mentally and physically, still in progress, of preparing for the hurricane to come.

As I told you before in my last post regarding this new system, after the 2nd IA, we expect that it will be executed perfectly. On the other hand, it was a disaster! Can you imagine all the three batches (mine and juniors) coming together everyday, every single morning, to the hospital, all together. It was crowded!!! BBH is not so big, filled with lots of patients, doctors, staff nurses, student nurses, and etc. When all of us come, it was a total wreck! How can our doctors handle us all? At this moment, it is us that need more priority because we are in the final year, but in this condition, there is no way that we are getting all the necessary attention from the doctors. Even worse, the doctors have not been informed and explained regarding this new system! I was shocked to hear about it! Who doesn't?! We expect that the administrations will explained about this new system last week, during our 2nd IA, but it wasn't done. The doctors are looking so confuse and irritated with this new system. I pitied Rosy and Vidhya because there are the one who have to answer every questions from us....this is not right~

As I said before, 'If you are in Rome, do as the Romans does." How can you expect the Indian doctors to accept and adjust themselves to the Malaysia teaching system in a matter of few weeks? Ultimately the one who are going to suffer are us, the STUDENTS! We haven't start our clinical skill like taking blood, doing IV cannulation, etc...and we feel helpless and useless, especially me, who are posted for 7 weeks in casualty. If there is code blue, I will not know how to at least, insert a IV cannula. Really, I feel really helpless in casualty. I can only observed and do some minor clinical exam and history taking, but that's it.

I have nothing to say more. MSU should understand what we are going through every single day we living here. They who do not experienced the hardship that we had here, will never understand our problems and feelings. I feels violated and dismayed right now. There are no words from the President and at least from the vice chancellor about this matter. The only voice we heard was form the Dean, who under my impression, do not understand us at all.....

Sad.......really sad~

A bad day......

Salam to all. Wow, It has been a month since my last post. Right now I am busy with the exam and everything. Exam? well, maybe it is not the word that me and my friend want to hear right now. Why you ask? Let me tell you....

Yesterday we had our interaction with the dean, and it was a bad one. After our beloved Dato' Ghani retired, we never like the new dean. I have to admit she is not what we can call as a 'role model.' Yesterday, she really said to us, I quote, "I never want to be a dean, but they (MSU) want me. I don't love you, etc" What kind of attitude is this? This is not something that I can accept since I come from a family of educators. This is wrong! This attitude do not reflect you as an educator at all! Plus, during the interaction, she bombed us with this new system of exam that we will have to undergo for our final exam. She said it is with accordance to the new revision by MMC. I think many of us will think, "what the reason of coming here?" I know this is an offshore college by a Malaysia university. We must also know that all of the lecturers that tought us were Indians and they must have familiarize with their system. There is a saying, "when you come to Rome, be like the Roman." So, why should we change the way we are now? Sometime old things are the best things. I have to say, the way the Indian education system was practice is much better than what we had in Malaysia. Because of that they can be great. Living in this country is like hell, because of many reasons. If we have feel the stress of living here for 5 years, imagine how the local have been living here since their birth. The dean should considerate our feeling, and just bomb us with this news right before our 2nd IA next week. If this system were to be implemented, there is no reason for us to have our 2nd IA, since it is still follow the old system. I also have to say that this new system, from my point of view, give the student higher chances of passing the exam. But, we have not been familiarize with it, and it is not fair for them to implement this on us. Why can't you do it starting to the 1st year students? With this, it will be much better. Just let us finish off with the current system. But this dean would never listen. Every time my friend rise and start to ask question, at one point she will stop us, and repeat the same thing she said before. I don't think she has any clue about the way we study here, and I feel that she never understand our problem (probably because she don't love us at the first place). This is very traumatic to all of us here...

MSU, please take note. She maybe have those medical qualification, but she don't have the right attitude even to become a dean. If she doesn't want to become a dean at the first place, why she accept it at first place? If she doesn't love us here, why she has to come here? She can easily call our BELOVED ass. dean and told her the necessary information. If our counterpart in Shah Alam love her, fine with us. We just want someone else to be the Dean of IMS-MSU, someone like Dato' Ghani......

I will study. I shall study. Nothing can stop me from doing what I had been doing since I was born. Old system, new system, I can try to cope with it. But the way administration handle the situation is very poor....Please take note of your weakness and improve it.

~I rest my case~
