Home Stretch

Oh boy Oh boy Oh boy

So today I had my final practical exam of medical school! In psychiatry!

Happy to say I got a “solid distinction” in the examiner’s words. They even asked me if I would consider a career in psychiatry! Hahaha I wouldn’t, but it’s good to know I’ll probably be a good psychiatry house officer when I start working in November!

I celebrated this victory with Ice cream and a walk on the beach.

And that’s what this post is about! With the ending of my final practical exam, I now only have 4 weeks of medical school left for the rest of my life!! :O

My final rotation starting on Monday will be Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Back to the land where there’s far too much oestrogen in the air. 

But I’m not bothered! There aren’t any major assessments as part of this rotation.

I do have my final exam of medical school, the progress test, towards the end of October. But I am so over these after 6 years, I’m happy to just pass.

So, I’m literally on the home stretch now. 4 weeks to finish medical school, 2 weeks vacation, then graduation!

AND THEN,

Worklife begins.

I’m just going to leave those words hanging there for a bit.

I can say I am already looking forward to starting to work. Actually, I’m looking forward to the next few years of working. Getting to where I need to go. Not that I know where that is, but I do feel it’s time to start looking that way.

Medical school has been a huge part of my life in many ways. So many things had changed where when I first got in, I thought the hard part of life was over. And everything was sorted. I can at least say I’m no longer so naive.

But yes. Let’s get the next 4 weeks done and just keep swimming! 😀
