Say hello to the slave in me !

Guess where I am at ? No prizes for guessing it and booo if you failed. Well, I am in California right now. Remember I posted on how my vacations got extended and that required a shift in travel plans ? So basically I had to cut my electives at LN Hospital short, pack up, say goodbyes and board the plane. Its just a stay for 15 days and I'll miss about 4 days of college in the middle, but anyhow atleast I'll get to meet my relatives.

What I'm really  annoyed about right now is the fact that the doc whom we ( Huz and I) worked under at the LN hospital has refused to issue me an experience certificate , let alone a LOR ( letter of recommendation). I mean I get it that he'd find it difficult to trust my skills enough in a period of two weeks to write an LOR for me, but heck, he even refused ticking on those tiny boxes in a performance assesment form so that the administration could give me a written acknowledgment of my two weeks at that hospital.Reason - "Two weeks just isnt enough for any kind of acknowledgment" I mean what is he, kidding me !.He made us work like a mule, made us stay back extra hours everyday, asked us to do assignments and then....it all goes to waste just because I couldn't do a complete one month of slavery for him. He was so annoying that even Huz has chosen to stay away from him after I left, I'm sure he'd drive him up the wall if he stayed.

And oh yeah did I mention that he didn't even give us lunch breaks ?!!, Huz and I would rush to the cafe and grab some cookies and gobble them down as we walked from the OPD to the ward after him..Now isnt that cruelty ??

On the other hand bestie and other friends at the cardio ward are under a wonderful, happy, humorous doc who takes them as humans and encourages them too..I'm envying them !

PS - All the other neurlogists in that hospital were all really cool.


  1. California.. wow. Have fun! =]

  2. By LN Hospital, I'm assuming you mean Liaquat National?

    Either way, that sucks. He should atleast fill out the assessment form, if not give an LOR.

  3. Thank for the sympathies everyone ! means a lot :) and yeah I meant the liaquat national hospital :)

  4. indeed the cardio HOD is an awesome doctor and to top it off he is an awesome person...one day when i become a cardiologist IA i want to be a warm person like him who actually makes the patients feel comfortable and not afraid to ask anything about them that they might be hesitant to ask :D

  5. what year are you in?
