Clinical phase is tiring
I’m sorry that I didn’t write anything on Sunday. I’m currently in the Induction Course which runs for a period of 2 weeks and it’s going to end on Friday this week. I’m at King’s Mill Hospital in Mansfield and it’s not that bad.
Firstly, I just want to say that it’s exhausting!!! Really it is, I mean I haven’t even gone into the wards yet and it’s not even 2 weeks. I still have 14 weeks to go through (there are 16 weeks in total for CP1 – Clinical Phase 1) and I’m already feeling tired despite the fact that I’ve been sleeping for 8 hours on almost everyday.
It’s probably because of my springy bed in my room.
Well, I’m still going to persevere cause that’s what I normally would do. Besides, I get to use my blue stethoscope more often.
Nevertheless, it’s probably boring because what I’m having right now are just lectures and some practicals. I’m looking forward to meeting real patients in wards and actually learn in real life situations.
Oh yeah, now that I’m in Mansfield, I won’t be able to find any halal butchers around. So, I won’t be able to eat chicken or meat for the next few months. I guess I’m going vege. Just kidding, I think I will buy lots of salmon fillets and cook them for dinner. Hopefully, I become a masterchef in fish by the end of CP1 😀
That’s all for now. I’m not cooking in the first 2 weeks since I haven’t really bought everything yet. So, I’m just going to eat some fish pies for dinner. They’re really good actually.
Ok, take care,
you could try mackerels instead of only salmons for more variety. it doesnt taste so bad and its probably a bit more cheaper (talk about saving money!) .. simply heat the fillets for a minute or two in a microwave, or quick fry with a few garlic cloves, ginger, salt and ground pepper and tadaa, your dinner is ready! But otherwise, I’m sure there are plenty of easy recipes to follow on the net too,
nice stethoscope by the way! and best wishes for your CP1 placement!
Thanks a lot for your recipe tips. I’m sure going to remember it when it’s time for me to cook dinner in Mansfield.
Lovely photo isn’t it? It was given to me by my morale booster.
