THAT WAS THEN , THIS IS NOW

When I was a medical student,
I thought medicine is science,
When I became a doctor,
I realised medicine is an art.

When I was a medical student,
I thought a rich and famous doctor is the goal,
When I became a doctor,
I realised a doctor’s goal is to treat patients.

When I was a medical student,
I thought that getting a specialialisation is everything,
When I became a doctor,
I realised the poor patient does not read your degree.

When I was a medical student,
I thought that passing exams is the only thing,
When I became a doctor,
I realised nature is the best teacher.

When I was a medical student,
I thought Hippocrates Oath is a taken with the degree,
When I became a doctor,
I realised God is the best doctor.
