I’ll be having my immersion again at our town. As much as I want to have my immersion here, I am also anxious of what will happen this time. I don’t want to experience what I had last year. I felt so alone and helpless in what I was doing that summer. What I really hate is that standard protocol of introducing myself as a medical student to the mayor, the municipal doctor and her staff. But teasing me or calling me Doc is the sweetest thing I love to hear from people. I felt that when I volunteered in a surgical mission at our barangay school. However, I am not confident with my clinical skills as a medical student. I do want to become a doctor already. And be considered a professional. I want to work. I want to earn. But right now, my countdown says I still have three years and few months before I become a licensed doctor. And even before I enroll for my third year proper classes, I have this immersion that I need to traverse.
