Blessing in disguise: R Ba Pe proposed but God disposed.

June 26, 2012

In my Final Part 2 Medical, short case, Professor Reggie Ba Pe was my examiner and I got the paraplegic patient.

We all know that in CNS cases like this, if not well prepared the candidate could easily fail.

But for me in addition to my good preparation and extra four months’ revision just before examination had given me plenty of times to even review the prescribed text book Davidson for seven times. (I used to read cover to cover including foot notes)

I have a good luck of coaching on these CNS cases esp. PARAPLEGIA by about half a dozen of the BEST lecturers: Prof. Dr Daw Myint Myint Aye, Dr U Kyaw Myint, Dr U Mg Mg Wint, Dr Daw Ma Ma Gyi, Dr Than Yin Mar, Dr U Kyaw Hla and others.


We could learn more as a House Officer than as a Medical Student

March 8, 2012

It is better to increase the Houseman period to TWO years. When compare to just listening the lectures and reading alone, practical training and SUPERVISED practice would definitely equipt the Myanmar young doctors with useful skills. Dear HE PTK please think about this option. Med Students need not spend parents’ money for another 1 yr. They do not need to wait another yr to become a dr. And could earn salary and experience.

Dismantling the glass ceiling above and construction of invisible glass palace under

June 18, 2011

My sacrifices during the Migration had removed the invisible (or more appropriately named clearly visible) glass ceiling above their head (if they were in Myanmar) and Alhamdullilah I could proudly state that I have even successfully created an invisible glass palace under their feet.

My old lecturer I have idolized: Orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. San Baw

May 21, 2011

In 1960 a Burmese orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. San Baw (29 June 1922 – 7 December 1984), pioneered the use of ivory hip prostheses to replace ununited fractures of the neck of femur. He was Professor Dr. Daw Myint Myint Khin’s late husband. He had lectured our class. One of the most brilliant Myanmar doctor. He was soft spoken and his style of teaching was also very good. But we all noticed that he was a chain smoker. Sadly only when his Ca Lung spread to brain, we knew the condition.

In 1960 a Burmese orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. San Baw (29 June 1922 – 7 December 1984), pioneered the use of ivory hip prostheses to replace ununited fractures of the neck of femur when he first used an ivory prosthesis to replace the fractured hip bone of an 83 year old Burmese Buddhist nun, Daw Punya.[2]


Is 1Care outpatient scheme for middlemen?

April 19, 2011

The following letter is a joint letter by Dr Ong Hean Teik and Dr Haji Haniffah b Haji Abdul Gafoor, former presidents of PMPS (Penang Medical Practitioners’ Society), and Dr SP Palaniappan, former chairman of MMA (Penang branch). This is published in Malaysiakini as a letter. I hereby just reproduce this seemingly important letter for my fellow GPs. Please do not just come and victimized me like former DG. Source: 1Care outpatient scheme – middlemen didahulukan?

The government is introducing a new financing scheme for primary care (1Care for 1Malaysia) by forming a private company/corporation to act as an insurance company and managed-care organisation (MCO). We believe this company will:

i) collect funds from all working adults and employers

ii) pay for all primary care expenses ie. for outpatient visit, test and medication at both private and government clinics (more…)
