Which do you prefer: Medical Student Vs Student Doctor?
How do you introduce yourself to patients and other doctors?
Does it really make a difference? Aren’t they the same thing?
We like – Student Doctor. It easily communicates to patients what profession you are training for. And it also gives you a subtle reminder:
Yes, I am training towards being a doctor, diagnosis diseases, treating diseases, prescribing drugs and caring for my patients.
Yes, I have already obtained medical knowledge and skills that will be of help the care of patients.
Yes, I am a work in progress, I do not know it all and I do not need to know it all at this stage, even if it were possible.
So, Medics’ Inn likes the term ‘Student Doctor’.
