Medical students can sleep anywhere, from a 5-minute nap to a full 10-hour night’s sleep (when not in-house, viva). Some say that every 24 hours requires 10 seconds of forceful sleep. The reality is a little less gloomy. Initially, medical students are just like any other student.
There is not much difference until the practice starts
- Doctors can watch TV one night and go to bed at 4 A.M.
- Depending on their comfort, doctors can go to bed at 4 A.M. or wake up at 4 A.M. if there are deadlines.
- Doctors may decide to drop out of school and sleep for 12 hours straight after a long and tiring day!
- During the examinations, doctors can only sleep for 1 hour or 2 hours.
- Some doctors may follow a strict pattern and sleep for 6 hours each day.
Moreover, after the exam, a doctor can sleep happily for a whole day! So, what we are trying to convey is that some things cannot be generalized. One such entity is sleep. It varies from one person to another and from one day to the next.
In addition, attending an 8 A.M. Morning lecture where they cannot compensate for their remaining hours of sleep is more vital to a doctor than the number of hours of sleep. Every doctor can take a nap at any time and in any location. I hope all doctors agree on this. A doctor’s life is neither scary nor scary.
However, in essence, we are complaining about two disordered phenomena
- Disturbed logic because the endless outbursts of patient parties weigh on your nerves.
- Disturbed sleep, because sleep is a luxury that only the most hardworking and educated people can afford.
Our teachers have never had the luxury of sleeping for long periods. As a result, they never want their younger doctors to get a good night’s sleep. As a result, they distributed the syllabus. So that each year they face one or two mammoth issues that refuse to end, and we are forced to sacrifice our sleep to fight them at night.
Sacrifice our sleep to fight them at night
- Anatomy year 1st year
- Pharmacology year 2nd year
- The community I in year 3rd year
- Surgery-medicine in the 4th year
In addition, no matter how hard you study MBBS in China, you will always receive grades that do not meet your expectations.
If you are a practitioner, you are compensated for the fact that you stay awake. The life of a practitioner is like that of worth keeping. Despite the lack of knowledge of the condition, the lower resident wants you to take care of the patient to take a nap.
However, only a few doctors can do it. Money is probably more valuable than sleep. Sorry for the confusion! Let me rephrase & because saving lives is a kind effort.
Do not forget that you will be charged for negligence if you are caught sleeping during your shift. Alternatively, even before a proper test, you can receive a bully from the contracting patients. People nowadays have a collective awareness that the recovery of any unsuccessful patient is the result of a doctor’s hand.
How many hours exactly do medical students sleep?
How can you sleep well if you are constantly afraid that something might happen to you? So, how many hours, exactly, do medical students sleep?
The average time is 4 hours to 8 hours. There will be months when a doctor can sleep for 10 hours to 12 hours. However, in the days before the semesters and the university exams, one can hardly catch some Zs.
Ask me; I could sleep an average of 7 hours a night. Thanks to the well-organized study table and my strict habit. I am here to reassure you. You do not have to be an owl to get an MBBS degree, I agree it is a demanding course, but it is not impossible.
Most medical colleges are open from 8 A.M. until 4 A.M. or 9 A.M. until 5 A.M. for the whole week (leave quietly some colleges that are generous enough to offer vacation or half-day on Saturday).
Try to plan time
The first year is spent trying to plan time for him. It is not easy to adapt to waking up at 8 A.M. and attending classes. Then you have a day full of jam in front of you. Moreover, when you get home from college from 4 A.M. to 5 A.M.in the morning, you are exhausted! It is not just for the first year. Covers the entire 4.5-year MBBS curriculum, it would be better to skip the internship here when it comes to sleep.
Things worsen in the second year when the wards or clinics start and the night and night suspensions. Almost everyone finds it challenging to manage their time. We fell into bed like everything after returning from college, and when we woke up, it was already evening mealtime.
Then you have pending projects and manual work to complete, as well as self-study before you realize it is already 10 P.M. Do you have classes starting at 8 A.M. and you have to watch them? Thus, the work begins at 10 P.M. to 10:30 P.M. It does not end until 1 A.M. to 2 A.M., and as soon as you think about sleeping, you are hungry, and the hostel snack session begins.
Doctors should not sleep. They are supposed to be able to modify their sleep in any scenario. A doctor must be able to sleep whenever and wherever he wants. We doctors need to be able to control our sleep.
You need to take care of him, take care of him, and make sure he is well. You should also sit in the OPD the next day, even after a sleepless night. So here it is. The best way to keep you motivated is to remember that doctors are the chosen individuals in society to perform the noble act of saving someone’s life.
