What Should I Major In?


Your Scholastic Strength Is Deep Thinking

You aren't afraid to delve head first into a difficult subject, with mastery as your goal.

You are talented at adapting, motivating others, managing resources, and analyzing risk.

You should major in:
  • Philosophy
  • Music
  • Theology
  • Art
  • History
  • Foreign language

How come nothing is mentioned about Medicine?? This put me into deep thought.. I started pondering for quite a while regarding the fields that I should major in... (since they mentioned My Scholastic Strength Is Deep Thinking!!). At the end I will twist and turn some facts to adapt them into my field after careful and thorough deep thinking...

Philosophy? Remembering the famous Hippocrates oath and few other popular precepts such as Primum Non Nocere in Latin phrase which means - "First do no harm".

Music? mmm.. the Cardiac Monitor, Pulse Oxymeter etc always give lots of weird noice (annoying noise at times.. especially the beep beep or tit tit sound). The annoying alarms from various ventilators, infusion pumps etc etc. Auscultation of heart murmur from patients with CRHD or valvular heart disease etc.. or the coarse crackles or crepitus or wheezing on auscultation of the lungs - can all these be consider as music as well? Not the pleasant music but the annoying music.

Theology? I can't think of anything to relate this with medicine yet.. Skip this part first..

Art? Imaging the human anatomy - human body is a beautiful piece of art. How about intepreting the X Rays, ECG, Echo, CT scan, PET scan, renal scan, bone scan, cardiac scan, HIDA scan, MRI etc.. This is considered as art also, right?

History? We always dig into great details when taking history from patient - past medical history, past surgical history, social history, family history etc etc.. I like history(digging into great details is part of my job) , hahaha...

Foreign Language? Medical terminology can also be known as foreign language to others cos we are using lots of terminology which are jargons to layman or non medical personnel. Eg. Acute cholecystitis, Hashimoto thyroiditis, tendinitis, osteosarcoma etc is something very common to me but foreign to others.

See? I can justify and manipulate the meaning of the findings and the end result is - I'm destined to be involved in medical field !!!

Medicine suit you just fine. From your blog so far, you come through as a doctor with a warm and vivacious personality. What patients needs most. A doctor that has the patient to listen with a nod of understanding.

Theology and medicine - well anesthesia and church sermons are both effective at putting people to sleep.
