OB Clinical EOP Done!

Posted on

Just finished my clinical exam. Had one long case which was a basic perperium patient with no complaints or complications whatsoever. My history and presentation discussion went well enough. The two professors examining me were good-natured…but threw in a couple of “hardball” questions and tended to be on the spot instead of making me continue my history. I guess they knew that I had a good history from the beginning so they just wanted to jump into the discussion part.

One question that stumped me is how many cesarean sections makes a patient absolutely indicated for another cesarean? I read that any past history of cesarean should indicate another one, yet they’re telling me “2 or more”. Weird. Another nitpick question was if a patient was rubella positive during pregnancy, took the vaccine after pregnancy, and plans to get pregnant soon, what should you tell her? (Keep in mind that my answers surrounding rubella and the first antinatal visit lead them to the last questions). After a lot of guessing, I threw in, “tell her to wait…but I have no idea for how long”. Hey, at least I tried.

Did well enough in the examination part, but started to get fidgety toward the end…threw in a few dumb answers. Overall, it went much better than expected, thank God.

My written is tomorrow. Then after that, I have nothing! Summer starts early for me. I’ll continue the rest of 6th year at October and take my finals for all subjects with the resit students. Let’s hope I’m able to revise the ones I finished (Pediatrics and OB) during the summer so I don’t forget them.

I hope you guys are checking out the COE blog. The gang are having fun in E3.

Later days.

About Ahmed Mosly

A medical undergraduate and a hardcore gamer? How does that even work? Is it even possible? Evidently, yes it is. Hope your brain doesn't explode from the awesomeness. I'm indeed both of these things despite my lack of proper time management skills. The scale isn't balanced either...at times it will shift to one side more than the other. I'm happy though. So...what's my story, you ask? You won't find it the most original tale ever...but then again, all gamers start out the same. Perhaps the biggest twist in my story is that I'm from Saudi Arabia. Yes...you read that right. We do have hardcore gamers here...it's not just desert, camels, and tents as some of you may assume. Remember, assuming too much makes an ass out of you and me (ass-u-me). I've been gaming for 20 years now...ever since the NES was given to me as a birthday present when I was 5 (thanks, Mom and Dad!). Upon discovering the internet in the late 90s, the inner workings of the gaming community and industry made much more sense to me. At first, it was limited to being a fan of what I love most and reading facts from afar (a.k.a. writing Zelda fanfiction). Then in 2003, I stumbled upon Nintendo of America's official forums (Hyrule Town Square) and things started evolving from there. The community promoted me and thought that my passionate ramblings were unique. As that community grew (becoming known as Nsider eventually), I grew with it...until I met the duo of Jarrod Nichol and William Cook, two other fans who ran a column called "Iris Network" that covered rumors. They actually talked about one particular rumor I discovered back in the day. I started conversing with Jarrod more, discovering that we were both passionate about the same games (Zelda, anything from Square-Enix). Turns out that Jarrod was deeply involved in the gaming industry, and that's where I learned the basics. His passion of making his own independent site became a reality in 2004. Luckily he invited me to join the ride...and what a ride it has been! I've jumped around here in Project COE, taking part in many positions and not limiting myself to a specific task. Is there even an official title for someone like me? Either way, I'll keep on doing what I'm doing and hope for the best.
