Lagusta:

Don't mind me jare, I m always in the jokes section too... grin grin grin

Never knew dentistry is a 6yr course.... We don't hav it in unilorin shaa

There are some medical specialties that can still guarantee a formidable social life: community health, psychiatry, all pathology specialties and some of the surgical sub-specialties I.e radiology, ophthalmology, and ENT...

And yep, u got it right, our courses are harder, imagine writing all pathology in a single day: 800 MCQs and 17 SAQs
@Lagusta and others, please I want to understand what you mean by sub-specialities of surgery and how is radiology for example a sub-speciality of surgery. Please I will like a detailed and encompassing explanation. I really want to understand sub-specialities of surgery in general and how radiology is one of them. Thanks in advance.

The sub- specialties of surgery include anaesthetiology, radiology, otorhinolaryngology and ophthalmology. They are called sub-specialties cos they help the general surgeon to diagnose, treat, and manage various disorders. Radiology must be one of them, cos without the x-rays, ultrasound, CT, MRI, etc, we won't get a clear view of what's going on in the human body....

There are many specialties in medicine and surgery, the core ones are pathology, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, medicine, surgery and community health

Pathology specialties include hematology, microbiology, histopathology, and chemical pathology

Medicine and paediatrics have the same specialties, only that paediatrics deal with children, while internal medicine deals with adults, the specialties include neurology, psychiatry, pulmonology, cardiology, gastroenterology, nephrology, and endocrinology

Obstetrics and gynecology is a major surgical specialty

Other surgical specialties include neurosurgery, cardiothoracic surgery, urology, orthopaedics, paediatric surgery, plastic surgery, and the sub-specialties I listed earlier..

Community health is a major branch of medicine....

Thanks you for the answer. I asked the question because I saw someone's primary fellowship examination result and it reads: " I am pleased to inform you that you satisfied the examiners at the primary fellowship examinations of faculty of radiology of the west african college of surgeons...". They did not say west african college of surgery sub-speciality. So am I right if I call a person doing his residency in radiology a Surgeon?

The fact that radiology is a sub-specialty does not mean it is not part of surgery, and yes, a radiologist is still a surgeon, cos like I said, they help surgeons to diagnose and treat surgical disorders.....

A surgeon is not complete without an x-ray film of the patient beside him/her, just as he/she is not complete without an anaesthetist to monitor the patient's vital signs while on the operating table....

So...........

A physiotherapist deals with the rehabilitation of the human musculoskeletal system, just an adjunct to an orthopedic surgeon... I think its 5 or 6 yrs but I don't kno whether they do internship...
