Career Story: Physician At A Veteran's Hospital

Physician At A Veteran's Hospital

Job Title: Medical Doctor

Education: MD medicine Medical university Sofia, Bulgaria, USMLE PASSED , ECFMG certified

Previous Experience: Volunteer at the James A Haley veterans hospital , in Tampa Florida, WORKED IN CLINICS IN BULGARIA , india and usa

Job Tasks: The hospital I work at renders service to the veterans of war. We together as a medical fraternity and system under the federal government's sponsorship provide state of the art medical care. Medicine here is up to date, evidence based and system based. All treatment costs are paid by the federal government.

I start the day at my clinics along with my superiors, attend to patients according to the scheduled appointments, evaluate all their lab results, check their prior health history , speak to them about their current situation and complaints, assess the need for new interventions and treatment modifications. Do a complete or focused physical exam according to the need arising from the situation. Once this is done we generally arrange the next follow up appointment and also order the lab tests that would be needed to judge treatment compliance and effect for the next appointment.

We have about ten patients each day at the clinics. At the end of the clinics, we generally have teaching conferences where we sit down and discuss many topics and issues that are pertinent to the present day practice of medicine and the futuristic interventions and possible advances in medicine.

After this we take time to visit the in-patient consults, in other words to give care to patients that are admitted to the hospital. We assess their progress and continue ther monitoring very closely and also modify the treatment plan when required.

At the end of the typical day we take time to complete the notes for each patient which means carefully and tediously write down every detail of the patients current, past and future medical management and this forms a very fundamental part of the system based and evidence based care system that would provide future care providers with an invaluable wealth to derive their reasoning and action from.

Best and Worst Parts of the Job: Best parts would be gaining a lot of experience and developing my communication skills. Gaining techical knowhow about a system based and evidense based medical establishment. Development of one's own personality to the fullest.

Worst parts would be tiredness form a long day of work, but I'm not complaining at all!!!

Job Tips: It's divine to render service to people who were willing to forsake and risk their lives for our wellbeing, and never ever should your service to them and your effort in helping them should make you feel belittled or overwhelmed . All service is to God, all service is noble.
