730天


就在昨天,我还在考虑如何成为一名有竞争力的医学院申请者和全职护士。现在我只剩下两年了:730天;17,520小时;1,051,200 minutes.现在是时候把我的颜色钉在桅杆上了。我需要明年开始准备一个次实习和选修课。

In one way,这部分很容易。我很幸运,因为我对自己的长期职业目标很有把握:我想成为一名神经外科医生,and I have a particular interest in epilepsy surgery.我比我的大多数同学更果断,希望明年的专业轮训能为他们的梦想拉开帷幕,their ambition.但我知道我想做什么,我已经初步接触过了;我已经开始打球了。

我不知道我到底想去哪里。我有一个模糊的计划:我将有资格在这个国家实习,以便在爱尔兰医学委员会注册。为了我,在爱尔兰完成了我所有教育的爱尔兰公民,这相对简单。与国际学生相比,我更喜欢实习。So,虽然我认识的大多数医学院的学生对实习年的想法感到忧虑,I am one of those unicorns who feels only excitement: Internship is the job!It is the dream.It is being a doctor.因为我做护士的这几年让我意识到实习年的困难,I have no rose-colored glasses.我预料到睡眠不足,没有社会生活,以及对混乱的持续恐惧。仍然,I view internship as an odd sort of comfort blanket because it is the last year I am certain of: I know it is a year I will be doing here in Ireland.

实习后,我不知道我想去哪里了。我在三个主要选项之间,each of which comes with its own subsection of smaller options.

Option 1爱尔兰。If I stay here,它既安全又舒适。I have my people around me — and anyone who has ever studied medicine knows the importance of a strong support network.But Ireland is also small.Irish medicine is a tiny circle.基本外科训练后,I would need to apply for higher surgical training.爱尔兰的神经外科可能有一个更高的外科培训岗位——两个,at most.如果我错过一次,I can reapply.如果我错过两次,我不能再申请。就像这样:游戏结束。

选项2:英国。It is close to home.事实上,一些人认为,从都柏林到伦敦比从都柏林到爱尔兰农村的一些地方要容易。它仍然具有竞争力,我听说,接受基本外科训练的医生人数越多,机会就越少。However,培训计划是直截了当的:一旦你的专业进入轨道,you stay on it.No risk of losing out half way through.

选项3: The United States.为了我,长期以来,在美国工作一直是一个梦想。我爱美国。I love the people,我喜欢职业道德,我喜欢这样一个事实,那就是你开始了一次住院治疗,并且在你所有的住院年里都呆在医院里(或者离医院足够近)。I love the security of it.但我会离开我的部落。也,移居美国会使我成为一名国际毕业生,住院主任可能不想冒险的人。

当我展望未来时,my greatest fears dance with my deepest hopes.I may pine for change even while wishing I could stay exactly where I am.我还不知道该怎么办。但我有时间想清楚。我是全职护士,am involved with research projects,编写和编辑各种出版物,并有家庭承诺。但是按照医学院的标准,我是自由的。我会用这段时间来权衡选择,考虑所有方面,抓住机会做决定。
