An issue on sexual harassment

I have been teaching for 11 years now in the College of Medicine. Within those long years, it did not enter my mind that I will take part in uncovering the bad practice of a colleague. It was a fine January afternoon and we were having our experiment in the lab. One of my female […]

Setting Priorities

I remember when me and my husband were just starting life together. I was responsible for everything in the house from cleaning the house and the backyard, doing the laundry, cleaning fishes freshly bought from the market, cooking, and all the little things. Life was so simple then and I enjoyed every moment of it. […]

It’s Medicine again

When I started teaching in the College of Medicine (that was ten years ago), there were around 80 students (foreign and local) in the first year.

She forged my signature

It is not the first time that a medical representative forged a doctor’s signature. It has happened many times in the past. The only thing that’s new is that it’s the first time it has happened to me. A medical representative visits a doctor regularly to promote the drug manufactured by his company. The regular […]

PAFP: on Medical Informatics

Even at this age of computers, still many doctors are not into it. If you go around private out-patient medical clinics especially in the provinces, many clinicians still don’t have the initiative to make use of a computer in their daily dealings with their patients.
