    Haha.. Thanks! :mrgreen:

    Well, it's not legal to do that. The reason why doctors are considered professional is because there is always peer review. In the sense that all doctors have been judged to be competent by their peers (or superiors).

    Until a doctor is verified to be competent, he cannot be given the licence to practice. The housemanship period is a training and evaluation period to ensure that the doctor gets the training he needs to be competent.

    Of course, what happens in real life is often quite a bit different from the ideal. In any case, legally, I cannot practice here in Malaysia or anywhere else. I'm only a doctor in name. So, please don't call me Dr. :)

    Well.. I've always been a little nutty... even reckless. :mrgreen:

    Hmm.. Maybe I was influenced by my father.. and relatives. Partially also because it's a "noble profession". You know - you get to help people.

    But I actually told my parents that I would most likely NOT practice medicine, even before I left for India. :mrgreen: I wanted to study medicine for my own reasons, not because it offers me a great job. :hand:

    Well, I did mention a few earlier, didn't I? ;)

    I would certainly love to start on a writing career. Maybe a novel or two? My imagination has been rubbed dull by the monotony of medical life but I hope I can still do something about it.

    I would also love to develop ARP into the tech hub I envisioned so long ago. Granted, I will need the help of many people in the community to achieve this... but I hope with perseverance, I will be able to achieve this soon. :thumb:

    Well, at least you're not boring! :thumb: :haha:

    Oh yeah, you did mention them! My bad! :doh:

    Wow, writing novels, huh? What kind? Sounds interesting, but it takes a lot of discipline! You could even write something related to egomaniacs in the medical field! :wicked: :haha:

    Btw, from your recent post in the ARP BBQ thread, I assume something that you've been planning has worked out? :whistle: :D

    Edit: Just realized it should be "medical field"... :oops:

    BOSS, do what you think is right. :)

    There are just too many people around me to quote who are doing different things contrary to what they learned. :shifty: ...and are very successful people.

    Well, science fiction, I guess. But my imagination has been stifled quite a bit by the monotony of medical life. So.... :whistle:

    But that's something I would love to at least try out. :thumb:

    Well, I officially resigned just now at around 9:30 am. Handed them my resignation letter and told them what I thought of the way house officers were being treated.

    They seemed surprised. They told me no house officer ever complained to them. As a result, the deputy director of hospital has requested that I meet him at 2:30pm today. :shifty:
