Nothing you learn in medical school really
prepares you for the transition into the role of a doctor. Whatever
specialization you choose in medicine, you will still need to train in, and
consider, primary care specialties. While the medical landscape keeps changing,
you need to be abreast of healthcare reforms, new discoveries, newer
technologies, newer methods of diagnosis and treatment but many things will
remain the same—and it’s important to know these things when contemplating a
career in medicine.
As a Doctor at Gleneagles Global Health City,
Chennai, everyday you’re dealing with some of the most challenging heath
situations but working with some of the most cutting-edge medical technologies
and some of the finest colleagues. Complex surgeries, path-breaking procedures,
colleagues who are the pioneers of their field – becomes your everyday life.
You will be actively involved in diagnosing, monitoring and providing
general care to patients on hospital wards and in outpatient clinics, admitting
patients requiring special care, followed by investigations and treatment,
examining and talking to patients to diagnose their medical conditions,
carrying out specific procedures, e.g. performing operations and specialist
investigations, working with other doctors as part of a team, either in the
same department or within other specialties, liaising with other medical and
non-medical staff in the hospital to ensure quality treatment, promoting health
education, undertaking managerial responsibilities such as planning the
workload and staffing of the department, especially at more senior levels, etc.
