Hello there you all. I made my account few days ago and I was checking out some random threads. I've enjoyed reading most of therads in here and I think I can't find a broader medicine forum on the net, hopefully. Even though this web based community sounds very heterogeneous, which is very positive in my oppinion, I had a first impression that most of medstudents see medicine as a mere science. Most of non-scientific stuff related to daily activities said is taken as jokes or something. I remind several jokes on Anamnesis I heard in school (Regarding its fundamental role on Diagnosis, still not that I'm not to blame for laughing at them). But afterall, what happened to the dream to help people after we entered medicine school, if it ever existed? Is that the excess of pressure we take daily on being 'perfect'? Is that the role of proletarian doctors have assumed nowadays, that turns one into a mere 'part of the system'? Is that blind greed for money/power? This may be a 1st year annoying naive post, but sometimes I really get shocked when I come across some people points of views in human/ethical aspects. I'm not questioning users of this forum only, but medstudents in general, including me. I think entering MedSchool changes our minds a bit on some subjects. Ok I've vented off.
