- "The most authentic and humorous residency record of an orthopedist ... with a genius brushstroke. Vivid-extremely sad and joyful." 
- At the time of publishing this simplified Chinese version of "Resident Sleepless", I am deeply honored and hope to share an important chapter in my life with every reader.
- I longed to be a writer long before I wanted to be a doctor. As I experienced the tumultuous, irritatingly resident years, I realized that this would be a story worth writing. Due to a severe lack of sleep, I foresee that I will not always clearly remember everything that happened around me, so I tried to squeeze time to record my feelings and experiences, sometimes before and after the operation, sometimes in the emergency room, and sometimes Late at night in the part-time hospital. Until now, there are still scribbled records in the box in a corner.
- After finishing my residency, I was busy supporting my family and my new job, leaving little time for writing. The notes were lying quietly in a drawer in the basement. It was not until 15 years later that I finally decided to write this life course. One of the factors that prompted me to make up my mind was a survey I came across. The survey aims to assess doctors' satisfaction with their career choices. One of the questions is to ask the practitioner if he wants his child to inherit the mantle. More than 50% of the respondents did not encourage their children to become doctors.
- Facing this result, I deeply regret it. So many colleagues are not like me, they have not felt the nobility and value of the medical cause. I have to think that they have lost their way. Of course, the current setbacks for doctors will be more than when I threw away the shovel and decided to be a doctor. Medical accidents, reimbursement, official documents, and the insurance industry that has allowed us to gradually yield. These are factors to consider, but they cannot erase the fact that as doctors, we are honored to receive special education. We Ability to help those suffering from illness. Although many aspects of medical care have changed, what remains unchanged is the basic doctor-patient relationship. You, the doctor, still open the door, communicate with the patient and do the examination, hoping to ease their pain. What else do we need from our profession in addition to our own job?
- As you can see in the book, my path to becoming an orthopaedic surgeon is not smooth. I have not tried to dilute the hard work of doctors, but I hope that young people today can feel from my crazy and mixed experience :really interesting! Today, when I look back on this period of time, I am not glad that it is over, nor hate it for making me so hard, but a nostalgic joy: I was running on this glorious road at that time, The tradition of saving lives and helping the wounded goes forward. My wife, who paid a lot and sacrificed a lot during those days, has the same feeling as mine. We all think it was the best time in life.
- Young people today often mistakenly think that success means that they no longer need to work hard. They are told that work is evil and must be avoided. I myself feel satisfied and happy on the path of the doctor, and I encourage young people to think like this. Doing a noble job will make people feel self-worth. I wouldn't say I like the sleepless nights and long hours of work when I am a resident, but I would say that is the necessary process. I want to be an orthopedic doctor, so I need these hardships and difficulties. They will train me early in my career and make me used to the hardships that an orthopedic doctor must encounter in my career.
- Looking back, I was amazed how much I loved this experience, and I was obsessed with helping the people to feel the satisfaction afterwards. How wonderful it is to be able to develop medical skills that are so complicated and difficult to help others! So for everyone who is thinking about choosing a medical career, I would say: yes, on the way to becoming a doctor, you will meet some bad things; yes, you will also be tortured physically and mentally, but in the end And it's worth it. All these are worth it.
