taking 1st calls in final year is really pissing me off. U see shit cases [silly in fact] all day and get calls at midnight from other departments for references etc. Am doing this from past 3 years [almost] and frankly now i don't have the same patience and enthusiasm as i had in my first two years of resident-ship. Luckily this will be my last month of emergency calls and that's it, am done with my M.D here after 2 months of regular attendance. Hopefully i sail through the exams smoothly [2 candidates this time]. After that an year or so of senior residency here may be and will move on to next phase of my life. Phase where job responsibility will be more and personal goals are given more importance.
