Om Medical Student
Desmond's tentative decision to become a doctor when he grew up set him thinking about his own experiences as a medical student. The course hadn't been easy. He had been frank with his son and hadn't intended his comments to act merely as deterrents; and outside the academic sphere, heartbreaks hadn't been few. Still, the long years of study and training had been interesting ones, and in so many ways, rewarding. The raw material of the embryo physician had to be composed of resistant stuff to endure the manifold processes connected with his manufacture; and the searching examinations of six years permitted few flawed articles to emerge from the medical furnace.He smiled as a whimsical proposition crossed his mind. With all the obstacles and uncertainties which lie strewn in the medical undergraduate's path, how had he ever managed to qualify? His reminiscences were to provide an answer to that question.
