Immoral but it's not the same as murder and therefore may be permitted in the first trimester under exceptional circumstances.

Life does begin at conception, arguably maybe at the point of nidation, you can't really draw a line in the development of a human being and say "well at this point he's actually alive!", the biological basis of your being is formed at conception and it's an unbroken line from there until you die.

You'll need to be more specific, because I'm struggling to think of anything where an abortion would be safer for the mother, let alone the child, over inducing birth. I'm not in a field related to ob/gyn though, so this is a good faith question.
>a fetus carrying severe genetic disease/birth-defects
What kind of defects are we talking about here? If it's a defect like Down Syndrome then I don't think you can kill the kid, but if it's something like anencephaly you can argue the kid was never alive to begin with.
>Rape would be another thing that would add some morally grey zones, but that would just go into autistic scenario thinking
In this society we hardly ever execute rapists for their crimes, so it's a bit fucked we think of executing their innocent children instead.

it's murder on any term since it is already a determined organism after conception has happened. other than that the decision is up to you depending on your worldview/mental state and factors that were into play during the conception. of course the parent/s alone will have to face the consequences for the rest of their life. not many care about this tho. from what i've seen in life, no one who had part in abortion has been able to live at least relatively happy or content life, now is this because of some divine rules or mental toll on your psyche because your wrongdoing and remorse, or both is up to debate.

why are there tens of thousands of mental disorders and so many meds to combat them? I've searched a bit and found a ton of stuff I had no idea existed like impulsive behaviour and intermittent explosive disorder which we didn't cover in psychiatry. I mean, do people really suffer from these disorders in such way their quality of life goes down?

I guess it may happen. I've also noticed the fact that as time goes the psychiatric field turns into a cluster of overly specific shit. Things like cross-dressing and homosexuality were classified as mental disorders 50 years ago so there is a clear influence (more like pressure) by society and minorities in order to aggravate and normalize some behaviors.
What would your reaction be if I told you there is an entity named "antagonistic disorder" which basically describes as mentally ill people that don't take shit from strangers or laboral abuse by their employers?

my theory on it all is that the efficacy of them isn't necessarily in stopping airborne pathogens, but changing horrendous hygiene habits for most of the population. go out into a shopping centre and pay attention to where people put their hands. they'll go from hand rail to escalator rail to shopping cart to mouth. wearing a mask prevents people from doing that over a long period of time and breaks a cycle of transmission that way

At the hospital I’m at now the surgeons try really hard to declare their elective cases as emergent when this shit happens.

However, I’m always just happy the patient is truthful with this kind of thing. The ones that lie about their PO intake and then proceed to get an LMA, or the patients that lie about forgetting to hold their opioid antagonists or anti coagulants per guidelines are the ones that make this shit more stressful than it needs to be.

It’s gaining traction. CRNAs are being pushed to independent practice and ANPs with online training are replacing MDs.

The data shows similar outcomes for ANPs and MDs in most primary care situations, but there is a stark contrast in outcomes for inpatient issues.

Update for anyone that cares:

The resident and a nurse were placed on unpaid leave pending investigation, while the orderlies were brought in this afternoon, questioned heavily, and told to resume their shifts starting on Thursday. They were promised compensation for the time off they were asked to take. The patient's husband had an attorney over and they're already talking about malpractice in the form of abandonment. Medical assistant was fired for "breaking protocol".

Apparently the doctor was seen on cameras in another part of the hospital for >45 minutes.

It's nice being a doctor, because you get to actually earn money and chad it up for all that knowledge and training you've packed into yourself, instead of just being one of the plebs in the shadow of your teacher.
The sudden responsibility and realizing that now it's YOUR patient and you can't just go 'haha i'm just a student here lol' can be overwhelming, depending on specialty(I'm in anesthesia/ICU so the first couple months were pretty spooky), but you get used to it.

Yeah, being in that niche inbetween therapy and surgery is my favourite part; I'd be incredibly bored if I didn't have anything to do with my hands
I also like all the medical tech/equipment we get to work with
I feel like having some skills that you're objectively good at helps with being valuable, because otherwise it seems like so much of medical career revolves around networking and socializing, which I, being on 4chan, am bad at
>Did you suffer from imposter syndrome or something like that? How long did it take for you to get used to it?
At first for sure, especially considering that I've always been the weird asocial type, so suddenly talking to patients - strangers - all day from a position of authority/confidence and having to order nurses(who are often older and more experienced than you) around was uncomfortable; but I had 2 years of internship(kinda equivalent to your residency, where you're kinda a doctor, but only work under supervision of a senior one) to get used to it before actual independent work. If anything, the experience has helped me socially to become more extroverted and sociable(or at least pretend to be).
Still, if I've had a hardcore shift and been placing central lines, intubating, doing spinals and pleural taps all day, it's a weird feeling to come home and play Dark Souls or Paradox gsgs and shitpost on 4chan with those same hands that were doing the above - almost feels like doctors are *supposed* to have some 'mature' lifestyle.
In the same vein, when everything goes smooth and patients/relatives are thanking you after surgery and treating you like this respectable doctor-person who was responsible for their/their dad's life, I think to myself 'if only they knew what absurd infantile shit I'm doing in my spare time'

I guess that's just maturity hitting you, first of all we're all human and we have different needs, if you want to get shitfaced in your spare time you can do it as long as it doesn't affect your work, imo.

I don't like working with my hands at all, nor masturbate mentally micromanaging doses and correcting potassium levels all day as an IM. Idk, I've spent so much time in front of my laptop lately writing my thesis and listening to music that I started enjoying writing papers. I have no idea what spec I should go into, how did you choose anaesthesia? Was it an impulse or you knew during medschool what would you like to practice. I feel like I exhausted every single option, surgery not being one, I went from FM to peds to GI to GI peds to occupational medicine to FM again and this shit goes on and on and I'm at that point in which I'm confused as fuck.

I don't have problems cracking jokes with patients or having a "professional" attitude towards them, I just fear the fact that one day, someone will come in, tell me his/hers complaint and have no idea what the fuck to do about it.

mostly an elimination process based on what I like/dislike; as I've said I enjoy the manual procedures, and was also considering clinical pathology or forensics for the same reason of not really having to talk to conscious patients too much; surgery never interested me either
>I just fear the fact that one day, someone will come in, tell me his/hers complaint and have no idea what the fuck to do about it
In my case it helps that the specialty is very protocol-driven - during anesthesia you mostly do the usual routine thing with mild corrections, and in intensive care you can just go step-by-step in stabilizing the patient - fix breathing, fix circulation, fix rhythm - and then you have some time to sit around and think what to do next while waiting for lab results; you don't have the pressure of a conscious and aware patient sitting in front of you and having to come up with shit on the fly

I think I'll do the same as you and try to make an elimination process but I always come back to these two: peds and FM.

>you don't have the pressure of a conscious and aware patient sitting in front of you and having to come up with shit on the fly

I mean, I like to see patients and be a part of their life for a while or for their whole life, that's the aspect I like the most about those two specs and that's why I would never see myself practice in a hospital. Money will come either way and tbqh, I'm not that interested in making tons of money, I just want to be happy with my job in the first place.

See, for me it's the exact opposite - I don't care much about the patients as individuals, I view each case as working with the human body that is in some way broken for me to fix and a pathophysiological puzzle to solve, and then move on to the next

I miss being a functional alcoholic and a sex fiend without anyone giving two shits.
