IS FAILURE REALLY A CAUSE OF INCREASED SUICIDE RATE IN MEDICAL STUDENTS?
For understanding this topic we must clear the definition of failure in our minds. FOR WORLD OR FOR WRITING IN BOOKS FAILURE IS STATE OR CONDITION OF NOT GETTING THE DESIRED THING OR OBJECTIVE. But for me ,as a medical student failure is another phase of depression ..Medical field is itself a constant period full of emotional and physical exhaustion. MBBS is not a course of five years it is a long story of many years. And the story of years begins from matric level. then comes FSC ( FROM WHERE THE PRESSURE ON MIND STARTS) .For SO CALLED MEDICAL FIELD , our parents send us to other cities without knowing whether to leave house is really our wish or their wish and secondly the bitter truth of society ..Then comes the real fear, MCAT, where parents are ready to pay loads of money bags to SO CALLED ACADEMIES ( Where nothing bt money making is only motive except for few loyal and honest teachers and institutions .AND when out of 30 to 40 000 students only 3000 are selected for MEDICAL FIELDS, the first step towards SUICIDE comes.AT THIS STAGE OUR SOME FRIENDS LOSE THEIR HOPE AND COMMIT SUICIDE . IS MCAT REALLY A MEASURE FOR OUR INTELLIGENCE AND POTENTIALS? No , this one degree not measures us .I know I am being harsh but PARENTS ARE REAL KILLERS OF THOSE STUDENTS who impose their wishes on their children just to feel pride in front of their colleagues . LISTEN, WE ARE NOT FOR MCAT, MCAT IS FOR US, Which means that we are the real world and we can far better than this minor degree. YEAH, my words are bitter for my medical field colleagues but there must be some reason that being medical final year graduate I so much hate my profession. NO u are understanding me wrongly I am not against MEDICAL FIELD I am against the RULES OF MEDICAL FIELD .IS it fair that only two hours of MCAT decides your fate and afterword’s in MBBS only two hours of paper and so called practical/viva WHERE PROFFESORS TEST US IN JUST ONE OR TWO QUESTIONS) decides whether to LIVE OR DIE …HERE COMES THE SITUATION due to which medical students SUICIDE, AFTER SUCH LONG HARDWORK..I AM orphan and due to a professor personal anger I have to sit for a whole year at my house after passing theory but failing PRACTICAL/VIVA. My all friends go ahead and even stop contacting me. AM I A SYMBOL OF SHAME OR DISGRACE? … NO, I want to scream and tell world that you can do what u want, but you cannot beat me. YOU WILL BE DEFEATED ONE DAY AND I WILL WIN THAT DAY ….
