Job shadow presentation

  1. 1. Job Shadow Presentation<br />Sundus Al-Mazidi<br />
  2. 2. Mubarak Al Kabeer Hospital<br />Mubarak Al Kabeer Hospital is one of the major hospitals in Kuwait.<br />Mubarak Al Kabeer Hospital is a governmental hospital that serves about 700,000 people in the area.<br />Mubarak Al Kabeer Hospital was established on 1982.<br />The hospital was named after Sheikh Mubarak Al- Kabeer Al-Sabah.<br />
  3. 3. Job Shadow Information<br />The person I Job Shadowed is Dr. Mohammed Al-Mosawi. <br />He works in Mubarak Al Kabeer Hospital. <br />I completed my Job Shadow on 26/4/10.<br />Dr. Mohammed Al-Mosawi’s job title is Senior Internist (Internal Medicine).<br />
  4. 4. My Visit<br />The requirements and duties of an Internist Doctor are the following:<br />a. Treating patients with any internal disease or infection.<br /> b. Attending on-call duties.<br />c. Doing minor surgical procedures.<br /> d. Having a five to eight years of university education and about six more years to be a medical specialist.<br />
  5. 5. During my Job Shadow…<br />I was invited to sit in a meeting with Dr. Mohammed Al-Mosawi and his medical students.<br />After the meeting, we made a round over some of the patients in the hospital. <br />When the round was done I was escorted to Dr. Al-Mosawi’s office to ask some questions about my Job Shadow.<br />
  6. 6. The Hospital<br />Once I entered the hospital, I was greeted by Dr. Mohammed Al-Mosawi. <br />I was escorted to the meeting room. There Dr. Al-Mosawi was preparing a lecture for the medical students about their chosen patients.<br />The meeting consisted of Dr. Mohammed and five medical students.<br />The meeting was about three different patients that have different symptoms and diseases.<br />After discussing the symptoms we went for a round to meet the patients.<br />
  7. 7. Continuation…<br />First, we met with a seventy-three year old man. There Dr. Al-Mosawi showed some techniques and asked each medical student to observe and apply this technique to the patient. I was able to participate and apply this technique to the patient, which was fun and exciting.<br />Second, we met with a fifty-six year old man. There we observed another technique which was quite fascinating. That technique was called the piano. <br />
  8. 8. Continuation…<br />Third, we met with a thirty year old man. There we observed how to talk and examine a patient.<br />I learned how to use the piano technique and the techniques that were used with the previous patients. The techniques that I learned are the one’s that surprised me the most, for they have been useful and easy at the same time. <br />I learned how hard and busy being a doctor could be. <br />I also learned that you need at least an eight year experience to be a specialist in your major.<br />
  9. 9. Advices<br />To be patient and tolerant to patients, patients’ family members, and fellow coworkers and employers.<br />To analyze and discuss a patients condition with other doctors to make certain that our results and resolutions are accurate.<br />I really enjoyed and liked the Job Shadow, and their was nothing I disliked.<br />I am still very much interested in being a surgeon as a job for me.<br />
  10. 10. Dr. Mohammed Al-Mosawi<br />I asked the doctor some questions and they are the following:<br />How many years it took you to be where you are today? <br />It took me ten years to be were I am now.<br />What important skills do I need to be a doctor?<br /> You need to be an intelligent, patient, helpful, social, and passionate person .<br />Which is better working in Kuwait or working abroad? And why?<br /> Working in Kuwait is better because you are closer to your family and your helping your own society to improve.<br />
