I'm going int my 3rd year of medicine and when I do clinics my patients don't believe that I'm a medical student and I'm going to be treating them! I don't know why this! It's getting to be annoying as I'm so passionate about my work and can't wait till the day I'm qualified but it's already scaring me that patients aren't going to take me seriously never mind my colleagues! I wear pencil skirts, shirts, suit trousers etc at hospitals, tie my hair up, no jewelery. some guys even try to chat me up! some patients even request that I don't treat them. it really does upset me because I'm studying medicine for a reason, I'm capable and believe I've got all the right qualities to be a good doctor one day but people have no faith in me!

well you do look intimidating and you said you were a model so when you think of a doctor
a model figure doesn't exactly fit the right place for a doctor setting
thats just what I think when people make a stereo type.
& you look beautiful. no wonder your a model.
but in my opinion I would be happy if you operated on me =)
as long as you don't have like tattoos all over you and piercings all over as well
i wouldn't mind.
but I don't think you have anything to worry about
cause my sister is in med school as well and when a person comes up to her
they sometimes hit on her1
