yes Nadia why not we hope we can help you.
for question number
1-oncology is my speciality
2- faculty of medicine; cairo university
3- the most rewarding aspect in our career is to be able to give the patient the right proper care he needes . this is for sure will be translated by the trust pateints and their families give to us so you will see the smile, satisfaction and hope in thier eyes once they know you are arround.
4-no the medical school was nt the hardest at all , the hardest comes with time which is how to manitain your skills and to upgrade your informations and knowledge.
5- the worest aspect is that sometimes we need to be awake 24 hours or more if possible to catch what is coming up. so it is not easy to take rest and there is no stop.
6-I became intersested to be a doctor coz I ve had my grandma with a chronic disease that neccesitate follow up with doctors for so long. then come my parents who wished me to be a doctor. and for this speciality I felt stick, sympathy to this type of pateints.
7-every speciality has it s own stigma for mine it is a combination of general medicine and onclogy also we share some other branches in medicine like biology, farmaclogy etc.
