    Salamalaykum sister! I am an undergraduate sophomore doing premed (opthalmology is what currently interests me) and I have had lots of anxiety over some of the more intimate physical exams that med students must carry out on patients of the opposite gender. How did you deal with those and how often were you made to do them? I can’t believe I would forego medical student just because of my fear of carrying out a rectal exam on a patient, but because I’ve seen other sisters accomplish medical school, it must be possible, right?! Also thank you for making this blog, your point of view as a sister with hijab is very relatable.

    • Walikumasalam, sorry for the late reply Mastoorah! So I honestly approach these situations with a scientific state of mind, as though this were a cadaver or practice dummy or whatever helps you focus. I’ve honestly have not had to do a rectal exam, but I have had to take femoral pulses on patients which is very uncomfortable :0 Just do what you have to do, and keep your intention pure that you are doing this to further your education and benefit the Ummah. Jazzake Allah khair for checking out my blog, good luck in school!
