A NEW PHASE?

I have been dormant for a while now if any of my readers have been wondering about the total lack of posts. When I first started blogging a good many number of people who knew I had just begun writing, encouraged me but also didn’t fail to convey me that a lot of medical professionals…

Radiology – Science of Wonder:

(The first X-Ray ever taken. The hand of Mrs.Roentgen) Image source- Google Most of the people are scared of getting checked at the hospital both in health and sickness. It is not always the fear of the sharp and shiny needles or the colourful drugs in various shapes and preparations. It is the fear of…

It’s official now! Dr.Vannamalar!!!

So, I have finished my internship. Surprised? 29th of March 2019, exactly 1 year after we began the so-called toughest part of med school, I have officially completed my internship. There is only graduation left. Ceremoniously reached home after 10 months. Even the beautiful little nest I cherished since birth seemed strange to me. It…

The Adrenaline Rush of ER:

( I don’t know why looking at my name on the duty list gives me so much happiness!) Every person painting an imaginary but ideal picture of a doctor, thinks of someone wearing a surgical scrub and a white overcoat running with tension etched on the face, probably diaphoretic and doing what is recognised as…

Part 2: Nephroward – Chronic diseases never a happy picture…

Pic source: Google Summer vacations: a lot of childhood tales to be told from those few months of everyone’s lives. Those are perhaps the few days when every child has the most fun of his/her life.

WARD DUTIES – It’s the beginning of real tough work.

Part 1- The cardiac ward: ( The cardiac ward offers the best view in the campus) 2nd October 2013. Not even a single person in our batch of 100, will forget what is perhaps the most significant day of our lives. I was 17 – young, shy, and a very much pampered, sensitive girl, who…

200% Intense

Have you ever really felt the tranquility of night? – When you are wide awake with your six senses on a high alert mode and you, lying supine in your most comfortable bed, dressed in pajamas, reading a novel with a story line so melodramatic that you are taken to a foreign land and perhaps…

Social and preventive medicine it is!

“Health is defined as a state of physical mental and social well being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. Almost every medical student can recite the WHO definition of health, even when asked out of the blue or when aroused from a deep and peaceful slumber. Health is an ideal state and…

Nervous…….not really

With a view to comprehend and efficiently deal with the complexity of Medical science, it has been divided and subdivided into specialities and super specialities, and this division will probably continue indefinitely, with more researches and innovations adding up everyday- not only in the arena of medicine but also in every other field supporting and…

Practising medicine………14 th April

I smiled suppressing the excitement I felt while walking through the perfectly clean but quite deserted and dimly lit hospital corridors in the early hours of the morning. The way to the Medicine outpatient department seemed suddenly different on this day. It was the same corridor I used to take during the entire three years…
