On Call: Reflections of a Radiologist
By Dr Chia Ghim Song, Class of 2011

"Quick, get a CT abdo-pelvis for this newly admitted patient to rule out appendicitis", my on-call registrar ordered.

It was my very first call. While I had requested for CT scans before as a sub-intern in my 4th year, this was different. No longer was I a medical student, which meant that the radiologist on call was going to be a lot less forgiving.

 
 
Alumni Shadowing: Thoughts of a student exploring his calling
By Shawn Ng, Year 2 NUS Pre-Med Student

Why do I want to be a doctor?

This question has probably been asked so often that it has become a cliché, but the significance of this simple question is not to be underestimated. In fact, its relevance remains pertinent regardless whether we are just embarking on this journey or veterans in this noble field. This question lies at the very core of our motivation, affecting everything else in the ensuing line of work.
