Alhamdulillah! (All praise be to Allah!) After the loooong wait, the list of admitted applicants who passed the rigorous application process in UPCM is now up! We now have the initial list of LU3 students (1st year Medicine Proper) for the school year …

|Meet and greet with Dr. Raduvan (not Dra. Duvan! haha) at Fabella Health Center|

|Seems things are pretty peaceful here.|
“The LOs are the ‘matured one for the entire rotation’. Like, they are forced to be matured for that short duration of time: always the one to start the discussion, check the attendance, get all the papers, encourage the students to be early, etc. And then that ‘maturity’ will be passed on to the next LO in the next rotation.”

There are more better photos of Disney Princess somewhere.

Hooray! (we have to stay awake in return though ahaha)
We talked about Malnutrition while feeding ourselves with these.

They really loved the foods by the way! ^_^
(Though most of what we ordered were
actually Non-Tausug foods! LOL)

Assalamu Alaykum! (Peace be upon you all!)The second week as an ICC student in the Department of Pediatrics just ended with a rather “incomplete” sets of days in a week. We had special non-working, no-classes holidays the past 2 weeks that reduced our …
It’s up to you if you will buy the book or just get an electronic copy (it’s illegal, isn’t it?). I don’t have the book, so yeah, you already know what I have. You really don’t have to read the book cover to cover (no one have ever done that I am pretty sure). According to the orientation slides I have read, we will only focus on the top 10 Ambulatory Morbidities in the PGH for Pediatrics. On what those are, we will still find out along the way. There will be a lot of Patient preceptorials and SGD’s right after that. So, it is pretty wise to have an electronic copy to sneak in and read some basic concepts on your case while waiting for your preceptor to arrive.
The original book costs around P5,000+ but you can buy it in a cheaper price in Recto (I found one arounf P4100) or in any of the fraternity/sorority book-sales.
|The “Red Book”
Published by the Philippine Pediatric Society
I have not read all the contents yet. Just scanned through them and I find it very useful because for once all the necessary charts and graphs I have been worried about are attached in the booklet! ^_^ Happiness! I mean, I no longer need to print a separate copy of them all.
|Colored growth charts for girls|
|Childhood Immunzation schedule|
|Preventive Pediatric Healthcare recommendations|
|And look! The book also comes with this Visual Acuity chart for kids 🙂
Wonder if I will be able to use this though
|My ICC Pouch ^_^ with a touch of Tausug Piys|
|My ICC Stash. Sorry it’s always messy.|
And with the special performance from these two:
|My new Pediatric Stethoscope ^_^|
Finally I can use this Pedia Steth my beloved sister gave me 😀 Thanks Inn!
Personal Note: Ahmad, there are a lot of children in Pandami and Siasi and even Jolo who never really had seen any doctors in their whole lives! So you really have to learn a lot from your short stay here so that you can at least give them something in terms of service. And you love kids don’t you? Plus, this rotation will surely be important in your training if you plan on applying for an Off-campus Elective in Pediatrics in Zamboanga (or Sulu). Just do your best. And stop slacking around!
Assalamu Alaykum! (Peace be upon you all!)No, this is not about my first born son. We are still way too early for that! haha. This is about the first baby boy I delivered (or helped or assisted in delivery) during our 24-hour duty at the Labor Room-Del…
Assalamu Alaykum! (Peace be upon you all)This is rather late, but I will post it anyway 🙂 For the sake of documenting things here haha. Sorry I wasn’t able to post much these days (imagine the gap from Day 1 to 10! haha). I just don’t feel like there …
