The beginner’s guide to becoming a doctor.
For a kid or a young student, how can he fulfill his ambition to becoming a medical doctor one day? What are the essential academic competency, qualification, knowledge and skills required?
First and foremost, one significant thing that one needs to realize is that the path to becoming a qualified doctor takes longer time than most of other fields.
A medical degree from the United Kingdom usually takes between 4 to 5 years to finish (and longer if you have to repeat some subjects or academic year), and a pre-university or A-Levels enrolment before that may take up to 2 years. So, discounting high school, you will be spending more or less 6 or 7 good years here.
Medical field requires students with good grades and results in science related subjects, particularly Biology.
Unlike many other courses that usually pay more emphasis on theories (and practical in employment world), your real ‘employment’ actually starts during your studies where you will be attending real health cases, and if you get lucky, you can do your first post-mortem on corpses during this time. Towards your final year, soliciting information, clerking the patients and presenting real cases to the lecturers become your routine and it is particularly important to note that good communication, interaction and interpersonal skills are key elements in your job. While this can sound stressful, wait for what to come.
Upon graduation, you will be placed in assigned hospitals for a housemanship (a training regime before you can be ‘upgraded’ to a certified medical officer or doctor) that lasts between 1 to 2 years. During this time, you will undergo a series of job rotation in different departments and handle different cases.
In countries like Malaysia, this can be the most gruesome period of your life. During housemanship, you will be wishing you have more time to rest and sleep. In the United Kingdom or Ireland, a housemanship officer will have his job confined to desk job (clerking the patients) and less on technical related jobs. It is probably true when they say that doctors who completed their housemanship in Malaysia are more competent that those from the UK and Ireland. And that is the most probable course that a doctor officer who finishes housemanship in the UK or Ireland will have to undergo another round of housemanship training back in Malaysia.
Once you become a certified doctor, you are able to start your own medical practice if you wish (depending on which country you are, the regulations might differ. Check with the local authority). You also have the option to pursue your studies in your choice of specializations such as pediatrics, pathology, oncology, psychiatry, E&T (ear, nose and throat) and many others. Granted, the higher your academic attainment in the medical field, the higher the salary you can command.
Medical doctor is a noble profession. Doctors attend to sick patient. They listen to people’s health complaints. They advise and consult people. Some spend hours in the surgery room removing a thing or two from patient’s body, while some others take care of other wide range of medical specializations.
Apart from having a good career, medical doctor is perceived as a profession that rewards highly. As the recent research in America indicates, 9 out of 10 top highest paid jobs in the US are related to medical field. They are also unlikely to become victims of unemployment as the world needs them dearly.
But being a doctor is not just about earning high income or salary. Just like any other profession, it takes passion, determination and perseverance before you can eventually become a doctor. When you do, be a good one.

Ok here's the thing. On the 21st of Jun, participants from other countries will arrive. The early plan was, they will stay overnight at Sekolah Alam Shah (for boys) and Sekolah Seri Puteri (for girls) before their 5 hours trip to Kuala Kangsar on the 22nd morning. But then, SAS n SSP will be used for Wind Orchestra Competition. So, we had to switch to Sekolah Dato Abdul Razak and Tunku Kurshiah College. So we asked their favours. SDAR said they would like to help. While TKC said they will help with two conditions.
First, they ask to let the students participate. Well, honestly it's not a problem.
secondly, they want the closing ceremony to be held at their ground. I think it's totally ridiculous. Hello! It's MALAY COLLEGE Youth Development Summit not MCTKCYDS! No offence yeah to all my tkc friends. Im not hating your school but i hate the idea gave by your thinkiamsmart teacher.
stop the nonsense,
After we loaded our tank, Dato Faiz wanted to bring us to Salak for the next shooting session. It was really fun. Going out with a bunch of old guys( i should've called them atuk. haha). Dato Syed brought us to his place and had tea there. It was a memorable one and i wont forget it. Two young boys aged 17 going out and lepak-lepak with old grandpas who acted likes kids. Their jokes were really funny though.

well, a lot of things got into my nerves during that period but why am i so blank right now? hurm..
let me recall..
The non-stop political war happening in Perak really got everyone's attention. I attended this one meeting for Malay College Youth Development Summit 2009 with Dato Paduka Menteri Orang Besar Kaya Jajahan Larut Matang Selama for the homestay and community service programme. In the meeting we decided to invite Menteri Besar Perak to be the guest of honour. Well, i raised this question: "Who will we ask to come?". And they replied me back: "Menteri Besar Perak". Then i asked them back: "Zambry or Nizar?". They kept quiet and remained silent for some time.
After few days, they court announced that Nizar is the right person. But he only held that title for only a few hours. Then zambry was the right person. Will any changes occur later? A question mark there. I wonder when my question i raised back in the meeting will be answered.
Hopefully all of these political drama will end soon. The citizens are sicked and tired with all of these. All we need is a stable government which can rule the country with justice and the welfare of the people is taken care of.
Enough of political drama. Lets move on to the next thing. Lately, many things or events happened and held in koleq.From sports day to rugby interhouse to mckk-vi carnival then open day and lastly mid-term exam which really made everyone worried to the max. Well obviously everyone wants to score for their exams in order to get a scholarship to pursue studies in the future. Well, Abg Hasnul told me something that made me wonder why.. He told me that those days if ure not good in your SPM it doesn't mean you wont get scholarships. Certain of his friends passed add maths for the first time in SPM and yet they got scholarships to study abroad. Well, it's different now. The challenge is tougher. It's true Abg Hasnul. Pity us we're under pressure and stress. Should we change our educational system? People ask yourself. Ill just let Tan Sr Muhyiddin Yassin to do his duty.
* I didn't passed add maths only once. Will i get a scholarship to study in Aussie perhaps?
- a question mark there and it is almost impossible.

The new cabinet was announced this week. Changes have been done. I hope the new cabinet occupied by the old and new faces will focus more on their duties and responsibilities rather than the politic dramas that will never end in our country. So dramatic. Good luck to Dato' Seri Najib as the new Prime Minister.

2. The hand-over will take place soon. We'll see what Najib is capable of? And also as the new president of Umno, will he bring changes to the party? We'll see..
3. Mckk's sport day will take place on the 11th of April? Who's gonna grab the overall champion trophy? Mohd Shah is leading n leaving the 3 houses far away beyond..

I wonder, will a first class mentality generation able to be produced if:
- Students' creativity are being blocked in schools by teachers.
- Everything in school is controlled by the teachers.
- Students who try to speak up are labelled as protesters.

In the midst of chaos all you did was sit back and relax while indulging that very tasty cup of coffee.
And you call yourself a leader?
Shame on you, shame on you.....
Ok, don't get me wrong. He didnt post that short, simple yet deep and meaningful article bout me.It was for someone else.
And i also got a few words for that guy:
Well, if u think that you are damn fucking good, just wait and see. When my government is formed ill ensure that ill tumble down your government and i wont ignore the voices that you've turned down.

H. Ross Perot once said,
" that inventories can be managed, but people must be led."
Alhamdulillah, In the name of Allah the Almighty God, with his blessings, a new president of Malay College Student Union has been selected. The official announcement was made this morning by the Vice Principal of Student Affairs Mr Fairuz Bin Leman.
Here's the positions that have been filled in:
Aiman Haziq Bin Zainuddin
Muhammad Aqwa Aliff Bin Jasmi
Amirul Ariff Bin Sazali
The 3 positions were given to us with the power of the Mr. Principal himself. He gave us the mandate to lead one of the highest organization in college. The appointment was a legal one as it is stated in the constitution of Malay College Student Union that the principal has the power to appoint any excos if the situation is out of control. As i was the only exco who won the last election ( i was the only f4 who won a seat last year. The other seats were filled by last year's f5 who had left the college), i am the most eligible to be the new president.
As the new president, i will try to improve things in college without interfering the school rules. I will try my utmost best to ensure the welfare of the people of the east and west will be taken care under me.
Insya Allah, the positions which are still empty will be filled soon. The election will take place on the 27th of Feb. Good Luck to those who will join the election!

May the force be with you.

I still remember those words that came out from my seniors' mouth. "Kau jaga koleq ni baik-baik. Bila kau jadi f5 pastikan semua benda gempak."I cant believe I'm a form five now. Man, time flies so fast. 4 years ive been taught the ups and downs of life.Final year comes. A year older, more responsibilities on my shoulders.
Seakan-akan semalam aku baru melangkah kan kaki,
Seribu tahun pun takkan ku sedari,
Hakikatnya masa berlalu begitu pantas,
Bak petir yang berdentum di langit hitam,
Di sebalik tiang-tiang greco-roman,
Binaan Sang Putih,
Sedabad lebih usianya,
Yang menyaksikan pahit getir kehidupan ini,
Kini bermulalah suatu era baru,
Sebagai raja yang memerintah,
Akan ku kerahkan segala kudrat untukmu,
Akan ku pastikan kau disanjung tinggi,
Jatuh bangun ku pasti sentiasa bersamamu,
Oh, Kolej Melayu.
Ahmad Khalis Nazib, A 37, Head Prefect of MCKK 2005.
