Dalam Waktu Allah

Waktu berlalu
Musim berganti
Pribadi berubah

Ada yang lahir
Ada yang mati
Dahulu menangis sekarang tertawa
Berada di bawah kini menjadi kepala

Cobalah berhenti sejenak lalu toleh ke belakang
Kadang kau ikut Tuhan
Tapi seringnya membuat keputusan tanpa melibatkan-Nya

Kau mengira kaulah nahkoda hidupmu
Kau berpikir kaulah tuan atas masa depan

Hidup berjalan sesuai kehendak Allah
Walaupun kau berpikir dirimulah pengambil kebijakan
Dialah yang memimpin sejak permulaan
Dia jugalah penentu garis akhir
Saat kau keluar jalur,
Dia mengembalikan pada posisi semula

Semua hal terjadi dalam waktu Allah

Doctor's Life

A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call asap, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy’s father going and coming in the hall waiting for the doctor. Once seeing him, the dad yelled:
“Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have the sense of


The doctor smiled and said:
“I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital and I came the fastest I could after receiving the call…… And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work”

“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now what will you do??” said the father angrily

The doctor smiled again and replied: “I will say what Job said in the Holy Book “From dust we came and to dust we return, blessed be the name of God”. Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go and intercede for your son, we will do our best by God’s grace”

“Giving advice when we’re not concerned is so easy” Murmured the father.

The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy,
“Thank goodness!, your son is saved!” And without waiting for the father’s reply he carried on his way running. “If you have any question, ask the nurse!!”

“Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait some minutes so that I ask about my son’s state” Commented the father when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.

The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: “His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery. And now that he saved your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.”

Moral:- NEVER JUDGE ANYONE BECAUSE You never know how their life is & what they’re going through, think about this moment.

How to save lives as a medical student...?

As medical students, we don’t get many opportunities to jump in and defib patients, or call code blues, or perform CPR. And honestly, we probably don’t want to. But we all want to help people. So here’s a handy guide on how to make a difference in med school.

Donate blood. One blood donation saves three lives.

Become an organ donor. You don’t even have to donate your whole body—you can select to donate certain parts if you need to keep your body intact for religious or cultural beliefs.

Volunteer. Okay, so maybe volunteering won’t save lives (unless you volunteer as a first aider), but it will definitely make the world a happier, shinier place.

Keep yourself well. As a medical student, the most important life you can save is your own. Engage with your peers. Take a walk outside. Try not to drink too much coffee Have fun occasionally. Watch Grey’s Anatomy without feeling the need to comment on the fact that Izzie wears her stethoscope backwards or bemoaning the fact that surgeons are rarely as hot as McSteamy.

Help the nurses on clinical placement. Sure, the doctors prescribe drugs and write management plans. But in hospitals, the only reason anything ever gets done is because we have amazing nurses. Ask if you can follow a nurse around for a shift. Not only will you get a work-out, but you’ll appreciate the sheer amount of work they do. And most nurses have brilliant communication skills—you’ll learn a lot. And even little things, like settling a baby while a nurse is tending to another patient or offering to find the doctors and get them to chart drugs for a patient can make a huge difference.

Speak up. Do you think the registrar has missed something? Ask them if it they think it’s important. I was in ED the other night, and a girl was seizing and had a rash over her eye, and my reg hadn’t commented on it, so I asked if it was of significance. It wasn’t, but the reg explained to me what she was actually looking for.

Talk to patients. Again, maybe you won’t directly save a life. But have you ever been in hospital? It’s a lonely place. Not all patients get flowers and family visiting them. Not all patients have friends to drop by and say hi. Approach them. Ask if you can clerk them. Ask them how they are. Go and say goodbye when they’re discharged. Smile at them. It might make a world of difference to someone.

Take everything you hear with a grain of salt. Not everything your supervisors say will be right. Always double-check drug dosages.

Learn because you enjoy what you’re doing. If you learn because you have to, or because you have to be a doctor, not because you want to, you’re doing yourself and your patients a great disservice. Not everything in medicine will be enjoyable. Engage with your learning. Approach everything with an open mind and fascination.

Dream. Imagine what you could do and how you might change the world. It may be naive, but this is the greatest strength of being a student—we haven’t yet been jaded by the system. We can still find ourselves inspired by medicine—and from this, innovation is born.

The Good Physician

This article is not mine. I just repost it. Enjoy...

The Good Physician
Has a brain that works
Can tell a joke tastefully
Listens as much as talks
Conveys as much with a gaze as with expostulation

Avoids the counsel of scalawags and pontificators
Watches, with pride, the accomplishments of others
Adds to the value of every encounter
Welcomes newness in all its forms
and oldness when it turns newness inside out
Knows that the cerebellum is for dancing
Is not annoyed by mediocrity
Never underestimates the intelligence or ability of others
Realizes that when the procedure has ended, someone still has to clean up
Notes that being wrong and glib is tactless
Thoughtfully navigates divisions of cultural diversity
Is haunted by the difference between accomplishment and aspiration
Can touch
Accumulates a trove of magical ideas for sharing
Is well remembered for those things given away without a second's hesitation
Understands the weight of oceans in a tear
Bumps into life with boldness and civility
Can use sotto voce
Asks for help when needed
Knows the names of everyone in the room and remembers
to thank them all
Is comfortable with silence.
