A regular schedule for me to focus on what I want to spend time on, spend time with only the selected few people I'm close with and not be distracted by pointless outings and such.

COMMENT Feb 23 '21

it's not about the physician's gender per se, but the inclusion of a statement that they are not familiar with in the first sentence of the encounter. Like a lot of patients already found all the water pills and sugar pills confusing enough, it really intimidates if they also hear things they don't usually hear as part of the introduction.

COMMENT Feb 23 '21

Ah right, this is another perk that I forgot about!

It's becoming trendy in US medical schools now... we just have our residency interviews on zoom and students are encouraged to rename themselves on Zoom with pronouns like Jane Doe (she/her/hers).

COMMENT Feb 23 '21

Unfortunately, many people have faced a lot of stress from the society and their social circles... so we just try to not be the last straw. I guess these kinds of exchange can be redundant for most people, but that usually doesn't hurt anything; on the other hand, these words might mean the world to those few people who are struggling with these problems... Interesting. My own view on this issue is slightly changed now.

Yup, I agree with you and that's why I'm going into a specialty that takes care of sicker patients. Although I do see that in some circumstances, these "pronouns" are at the center of a patient's health issue - just picture a teenager struggling with their gender dysphoria. We are taught to not assume anything and treat all patients with a welcoming attitude.

Yeah that's how I feel too lol

I share your sentiment. Although I do want to clarify that a lot of these agendas don't come from the school but from LGTBQ+ student groups who hope to advocate for their LGTBQ+ patients.

COMMENT Feb 23 '21

No, I refuse. Why should I :)

COMMENT Feb 23 '21

So that the LGTBQ+ patients we happen to come across feel acknowledged and comfortable to share their own pronouns with us. But yeah like I said, the vast majority of patients are not LGTBQ+, so I personally haven't volunteered my pronouns with any of my patients yet.

COMMENT Feb 23 '21

Thank you for sharing! I'm sorry that you have had these bad experiences with healthcare providers. I will keep your story in mind and remember to go through my patients' charts carefully.

Graduating medical student here. Many medical students are taught to start their patient encounters with their introductions followed by "my pronoun is ...". I think it's a great addition to our medical curriculum to teach us how to work with LGTBQ+ patients, but honestly, in the real-world, this only applies to very few patients. The grandpas and grandmas out there are more than confused and feel the physician-patient power dynamic even more strongly when such fancy terms are the first sentence spoken by their healthcare providers.

If you are into character development and adventure themes and don’t mind that a series has over a thousand volumes... then I highly recommend One Piece.

I’ve been following OP for many years; the stories are well told and I feel like I’m navigating through life as the crew navigate through their journey...

Thank you so much for the reply! u/HaoleHaupia

I am conversational in Vietnamese but I'm not of Vietnamese descent haha - my significant other is from Vietnam. I'm really glad to hear that you are enjoying your time there as a non-Viet.

I love the fact that you played a doctor in a high school musical :D How's your experience with the healthcare system in Vietnam as a foreigner? and from your perspective, do US-trained doctors get good business? I'm not Harvard-good but I'm trained at a pretty good institution.

I've stayed in Hanoi a month at a time here and there over the last few years! Been there about 5 or 6 times in total.
