  • every team handle different patients

  • no need go wad
  • if urself don hav ofthalmoscope.. can borrow.. ask stuff in clinic..or ask juniors. sharing a ofthalmoscope may be difficult)
  • oncall is just a registrar (final yr postgrad) teach u all in wad only
  • exam mcq+ see picture answer questions + shot case

  • can borrow a book named kanski ofthamology as reference if u think not enough

ENT posting

  • same as ofthalmo
  • but no oncall
  • no need go wad
  • til now can't find a really good books

Paediatric posting

  • firstly, divided into 4 groups. first 2 groups in wad 6s. then 1 group in wad 6U. and the last group in wad 2 nilam and NICU.
  • due to dr asked us emphasize on 6s cases. most cases will come out in exam... so, those 4 subgroups must rotate until lastly. go to 6s 4 weeks, 6u 1 week, and 2 nilam & NICU 1 week and every students must oncall 7 times in 6 weeks. and every wad should have ppl.
  • but oncall very eng one-- clerk a case (case tat admit on tat day), then wait for the specialist to come and we follow wad rounds.. if got chance present the case to dr. all procedure we cannot do one.. can observed only, cuz kids are too fragile, we must wait til another posting then only can

Medical posting

  • in 7s and 7u, each wad got 2 team handle patients... and every team have 1 specialist...
  • in board or folder got wrote either the patients belong to team A or team B...
  • Due to this division, we also divide into 4 subgroup...
  • division of group mostly are 1st half go to 7s and another half into 7u.... then the half divide half again to team A and team B...
  • during wad round, u all follow ur own team
  • but bear in mind that, medical posting is a posting does not have well- planned schedule...
  • oncall lists have to build by ur own leaders...
  • and clinical teaching sometimes divide into 2 subgroups, sometimes into 3 subgroups, sometimes into 4 subgroups....
  • better each types of division got its own leaders to contact dr... if not sure become very messy


“Dan apabila hamba-hamba- Ku bertanya kepadamu tentang Aku, maka sesungguhnya Aku dekat. Aku mengabulkan permohonan orang yang berdoa apabila ia berdoa kepada-Ku, maka hendaklah mereka itu memenuhi-Ku, dan hendaklah mereka beriman kepada-Ku, agar mereka selalu berada dalam kebenaran.” (Q.s. al-Baqarah: 186).
