How long have you been staying in hall?
M1, M2 and M4
What made you decide to continue staying in hall, even in M4?
Because why not? It’s the last chance to unwind before the terror of M5 and MBBS hits 😂 And I guess it’s also because when I've graduated as a doctor (and have no life as a HO) I want to look back at my school life and have no regrets about studying too hard and not having a fun and fulfilling university life.
How do you manage your time between hall and your clinical postings?
It’s really tough because on top of hall commitments and clinical postings, I go for IVP trainings and am involved in other school stuff such as playhouse as well. But the main thing is to learn how to prioritize your time? My motto for M4 is play hard and work harder. I'm pretty sure anyone in Medicine (since NUS grabs all the multitalented people) has the ability to juggle many commitments without compromising their grades in school, it’s all a matter of discipline and knowing what you want for the future.
What’s your most memorable experience in your clinical postings?
For clinical posting would be during emed where I got to perform CPR on a patient with cardiac arrest! Though unfortunately in the end the patient didn't make it
