Every moment in our life we are learning something new and evolving to become better me.. but after spending half of my life being a doctor I’m still trying to be a better doctor.

What did my profession teach me?? Click To Tweet

To Be Patient:

It’s the first thing I’ve learned and I’m still in short supply of it.

We need patience a lot and lots of it to deal with our patients and relatives. Patients don’t always have a relevant history or relevant problems but they do have queries in abundance. So I patiently sit and listen and pray to god to grant me more patience. The satisfaction and gratitude I see on their faces is the best reward I could ever gain.

Develop my communication skills:

Communication skills or relaying skills are very essential. It’s imperative that the patient and relatives understand what’s wrong with them or how the treatment would proceed or how the results would be… if we’re unable to convey it well then it’ll cause misunderstandings and problems.

Communicational Skills

I believe I’ve learned to make my communication skills a lot better. It matters a lot when we’re relaying news or test results that the patient understands it well.

Importance of teamwork:

In my profession most of the time we require backup from different fields or good care from paramedical staff or Juniors. It’s very essential to acknowledge the teamwork instead of taking sole credit.

At the early stage of my career, I aced in this field. I give credit to all and the whole team is rewarded for the success.



It’s what makes you a good doctor. You’ve to empathize with the patient and understand their suffering. It helps in the treatment too when you understand their condition you’ll help them better. It’s difficult to be empathic and still be unaffected by the suffering. It certainly takes a toll on us too.

Never Give Up:

You should never give up on a patient, no matter what the final results are, everyone deserves a chance. The importance of life is to the relatives so give your best shot.

No matter the condition, status, position, or financial gain, I’ve learned to just see them as our patients and treat them equally. Treat them the best we can.

Being Doctor Taught
Never Give Up

I’ve improved a lot and I’ve integrated them into my daily practice. With these important lessons, I’m still not done I want to be better so I’m open to learning more.

Happy Working…

Doctor are treated as Gods and they are very easily blamed if anything goes wrong. but the truth is they are also human beings and it is not easy to have all the qualities you have mention all together.
