Clinical rotations are the bridge in medical aspirant’s journey of the transformation from a medical aspirant into a doctor. Clinical rotations form the last two years of the MD Program and provide medical students with an exclusive opportunity to visit hospitals and experience the life of a doctor even before they become one.
Clinical experiences are most exciting as well as the most crucial part of the medical journey. Most exciting because this is the phase when students enter the “practical world of medicine” and face the real-world challenges, encounter real patients and help give them real cure. Most crucial because this is also the phase when students learn the practical application of medical knowledge they have acquired throughout the years to give the best healthcare to the patients.
In clinics, the more one learns, the better doctor one will be. From nursing skills to conducting serious operations, medical students go through all possible experiences in their clinical sciences time.
Well, students experience many moments during clinical rotations like moments of joy for good news, moments of sadness in critical conditions of patients, moments of fatigue when they are in too much demand at the clinic, and amidst all those moments, one thing is sure: every moment is a moment of shared work, empathy, care, and immense learning and all that learning remains with them for life as it is a learning gained through real-life incidents and experiences.
