I am six week away from my final CBO (Conjoint Board of Orthopaedic) Postgraduate Exam. Hmmm...this is gonna be my 4th attempt already. During the last 3 attempts, I passed all the components of theory part that include the BAQ (Best Answer Question) as well as 2 essay questions.
During the clinical part of the exam, I failed my long-case component. Even though I passed the other components of the clinical parts - OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination), VIVA VOCE (Verbal Objective Clinical Examination) and Short case clinical examination, I have to sit for all the components once again, for the 4th time that is....Excellent huh?! *sigh*
If you ask anybody on how to pass the exam, the answer will be the same:
Usaha + Doa + Tawakkal
Following the last failure, me and 3 other colleagues were 'exiled' to Hospital Sungai Buloh. For me, personally, this is a blessing in disguise. I thank Allah for this opportunity to know great surgeons - Dato' Zamyn Zuki, Mr. Shahrid, Mr. Salleh, Mr. Hazrin, Mr. Chong, Mr. Roshan and Ms. Jayamalar. We've learnt a lot from them. Not only orthopaedic-related knowledge, but also about LIFE. The Ortho-Lifer in Hospital Sungai Buloh can share this with you...ask them what LIFE means...
