Hello, I'm the student of KSMU(Kursk State Medical University) in Russia. When I was 16, I decided to be a doctor. In 2013 I entered in KSMU and began my thorny path in medicine.
In Russia the problem of young specialist (medicine I mean) is very serious, because:
First. Small towns dont have them.
Second. Free places (In Russia government pays a certain number of places and there is a competition for theses among abitirients) in medical universities are limited, and if you want became a doctor you need pay.
My parents are ordinary, my father installs air conditioners, and my mother works as a seller in a store. They earn a little money and so that I could live and study in another city, I also had to find a job. I became a night worker in McDonalds. It was hard study and work at the same time. But I want to be a doctor so much that I didn't miss classes because I knew that it was important for me. I pass exams at 4 or 5 (In Russia evaluation system consists of 5 points, except 1, minimal point is 2 and means, that you know nothing). In the second year I went to the surgical club, and at fourth took part in the movement "Ucheniya", which is dedicated to teaching students practical skills in emergency care(cardiopulmonary resuscitation, basic skills such as vein catheter insertion, first aid in different cases and e.t.c.).This is a very good project that helps students of all courses to acquire very important skills.
Its me :)
Me and my friends from Surgery club.
Everything went on as usual, my parents paid for my studies, I worked and studied, but in the last year of study, the store in which my mother worked closed and there was no money to pay for the last year of study. I decided to go to the bank and take a loan, but the bank refused me. I have no relatives who can help me, but my friend from Malaysia told me about this project and told me to try contacting people here for help.
I do not know what usually write in the end in such messages, but I know one thing that I will be immensely grateful to the people who will help me to fulfill my dream.
