On Doctors and Migrating,

1. Not everyone can , not everyone should. Not everyone is better off Abroad.

2. If your plan is to "leave". Just to leave the country and Practice Medicine outside. The UK is your best bet. The US is much more expensive and longer 3. It is possible to get into training in the UK. Infact, it might be easier than matching in the US. Know the Options and start working towards it.

4. If you are in Residency in Nigeria, it is a "Plus" when you are relocating.

Everyday tips that could Save your Life, Literally.

#IssaThread

1 - Never walk down Stairs or Run with your Hands in your Pocket. If you slip and fall, you can use your hands to break your fall. You really don't want a Head injury, especially in Nigeria 2 - Learn CPR.

200,000 people die yearly because no one around them could start CPR immediately.
To get certified, you need to take a course. but you should have the knowledge and help save lives.
Information about this is everywhere. There really isn't an excuse not to know

A Resident Doctor in Irrua has tested positive to the Corona virus.

Let me explain to you why this is a REALLY bad thing.

When a Doctor (Read Health Worker) is infected with the Virus, a cascade of events happen.

#Thread The Doctor has to "Self Isolate"

This reduces the number of Doctors available to care for the patients.
If there were 2 doctors caring for 6 patients, it is now 1 caring for all 6

Monday,

Here is some special advice for the week.

I watched a TedTalk by Tim Urban on Procrastination - bit.ly/2oJCg67 and it succinctly illustrated a battle I had fought for a long time.

I noted some similarities between his points and mine, hence the thread.

RT! His Talk was fun and brilliantly described what goes on in the mind of a procrastinator, and pointed out a few pitfalls to that approach.

I found it enlightening and an easier way to illustrate the solution i have devised to curb procrastination

I hope it helps someone. 🙂

Recieved this on WhatsApp, I think it is worth a read.

It was a cold and rainy morning sometime in April, when one of the OPD nurses on duty knocked on the consulting room.

*Nurse KC:* Doc, are you free? There’s a new patient that will like to see you. *Me:* Okay, Please send her in.

*Me:* Good morning Ma’am, how may I help you?

*Patient:* Good morning Doc, I am about 3 months pregnant but still seeing my menses monthly and I am worried.

Dear Young Professionals, read this.

Peter graduated to be the best and finest surgeon in the world. At age 30, he became married. The joy of marrying a successful young person attracted, his wife, to him.

After the Honeymoon, he hardly spent some quality time with his wife. Their relationship began to go sour.
Not that Peter is flirting around with other ladies.
Not that he now had a bad friend.

But, at his work place, he was seen as TOO IMPORTANT.

Every patients craved him. The Nurses wanted him to handle the surgeries at hand.

“So you can’t take a bullet for me?”

Orin teased as the blood started flowing into the bag. “Its small needle you are complaining about”.

John smiled. He would actually take a bullet for her. He wondered if she realised that was how much he loved her. “How long would it take?” He Inquired.

“10 to 15 minutes”.

That wasn't so bad, he always imagined the process to take at least an hour.
All in all he had been in the hospital less than 30 minutes.

Do Girls Mature Earlier than Boys?

Is it Scientific? Or Just a Social Construct?

If they do, why do they?

If they dont ,why do we think they do?

Here's why,

Girl hit puberty earlier than boys, at this stage you body starts preparing for the possibility of having and raising a child.
