Urban Banished Immortal - Chapter 125
Excellence in Medical Skill and Ethics, Guo Huai
“If we can stay at the clinic, how will we be treated?” When Guo Huai finished speaking, the students from both schools suddenly got excited, since if they couldn’t qualify during the trial period, they would get paid 3000 yuan. The doctors in Wucheng Hospital were only paid 8000 bucks per month. According to the calculation, the wages at Clinic of No Treatment were even higher than Wucheng Hospital.
“If you qualify, each of you will have to pay the clinic 3000 bucks per month as tuition fees, for the first three months. After three months, you all have to pay Clinic of No Treatment 10 thousand per month,” Guo Huai said with a smile.
“Brother, are you sure you said it right? You want us to pay you to work for you? Hahah! Do you think we’re stupid?” a student from the western medicine school asked loudly. “Cancel my name, I’ll stick to western medicine. I’ll look for a job after that.”
Guo Huai looked at the student who was speaking and didn’t bother to explain. The people under the stage had become a mess already.
“Guo Huai, are you sure you want it this way?” Liu Yaoshi asked, confused.
“You heard me yesterday. The treatment fee I offered to Old Man Xiao of Eightstage Collapse is 10 million after discount,” Guo Huai said with a smile. “For the first three months, I’ll fork out one hour each month to teach everyone at my clinic. After three months, the students of Clinic of No Treatment should be capable enough already. At that time, the treatment fees will all belong to yourselves. I only asked for 10 thousand bucks. I feel like bosses like me don’t really exist anymore.”
“Do you mean that the employees who work at Clinic of No Treatment will keep all the treatment fees themselves? And we only have to pay the clinic 10 thousand a month?” Leng Shuang asked, astonished.
“Also, if I branch out the clinic to other places, the earliest employees will all have a chance to become the owner themselves. While having the heart of a parent as a doctor is important, I feel like what President Huang said yesterday is right. Doctors are humans too, no one would start a business that isn’t profitable,” Guo Huai said with a smile.
“Then do you have to explain to the students below?” Liu Yaoshi asked softly.
“No need. Since they saw how I removed the tumor yesterday, if they still don’t understand what I’m trying to say now, I don’t want such an employee,” Guo Huai said with a smile. “Obey whoever wants to cross out their names. We’ll save a lot of time this way.”
Guo Huai was right. In just under half an hour, only 90 people were left in the Chinese medicine school, and 21 for the western medicine school.
“Phew, the few talented Chinese medicine students all decided to stay,” Liu Yaoshi said as she looked at the name list. “Leng Shuang, how’s your side doing?” “Chen Jiadi, Cao Qiankun, and He Mo are all here. I think the best-performing students all stayed,” Leng Shuang answered.
“I’ll go to the classroom beside. Let them come to me one-by-one, I have a few questions to ask them,” Guo Huai said with a smile. “If he really pays that much, I think giving him treatment shouldn’t be a problem. Since I need to pay your clinic monthly if I want to work there,” a student seated at the opposite of Guo Huai said. Actually, he didn’t really want to work at Clinic of No Treatment deep down his heart. Working at your clinic for no pay, and we still have to pass up money. Why the heck should I go there? You ask me if I would treat someone I hate for 10 million or not. I’m not an idiot, of course I would treat him, he thought.
“I’m really sorry, you’re out. Your personality doesn’t match our clinic’s slogan,” Guo Huai said with a smile. “No treatment for whoever we don’t feel like helping. At Clinic of No Treatment, we don’t give treatment as long as we don’t feel like it. It’s not a matter of money.”
“Damn! Are you sick? You wasted so much of my time,” the student said as he left the classroom.
“Brother, I don’t have money.” This was the first sentence Li Yu said when he entered the class.
“I want to go to your clinic, but I don’t plan to earn money. I just want to learn from you so that I can utilize the medicinal herbs behind my house, so that I can bring wealth to my village,” Li Yu continued saying.
“If you’re willing to accept me, I’ll repay whatever I owe the clinic after I earn money,” Li Yu said seriously as he looked at Guo Huai who had been smiling all the time.
As he saw that Guo Huai kept quiet, he got a bit nervous. He said loudly, “Brother, please tell me if I can make it. I have rather respectable results at the Chinese medicine school. You can seriously consider taking me in. Please give me this opportunity!”
“One year later, I’ll pass Clinic of No Treatment to you. At that time, you can’t choose to reject the offer. If you can promise me, I’ll promise you as well. What do you think?” Guo Huai asked with a smile. “If I want to take you as my disciple, would you accept my request?”
“Master!” Li Yu exclaimed excitedly. Yesterday, he spent all the money he had, 1000 bucks, to purchase the replay of Guo Huai’s performance during the medical battle. He carefully analysed the video for more than 10 times. He swore to himself that he had to follow Guo Huai no matter what, to get closer and closer to his dream.
The one-on-one interview was still going on at two in the afternoon. The few girls got really hungry that their stomachs rumbled, but Guo Huai was still really focused in interviewing the students one-by-one.
“It’s finally done! These people will do.” At three in the afternoon, Guo Huai stretched his body as he finally left his seat. Having the name lists in hand, he walked out of the classroom. The hall wasn’t as crowded anymore compared to the situation in the morning. Some students knew that they’d get eliminated and already left the place.
“Sorry for letting you all wait. Shishi, you may announce the name lists. Let them pack their luggage. At five in the afternoon, I’ll send cars to pick everyone up to my clinic. Don’t worry about the formalities in this school, President Liu will take care of both Chinese and western medicine schools,” Guo Huai said with a smile.
Liu Yaoshi received the name list. Guo Huai circled the names of exactly ten people. Some were rated very highly by her, and some were rather low. A few people that she thought would definitely get picked got crossed out.
“Leng Shuang, Cheng Kun, Lu Feng, Li Yu, Yuan Yulong, Pei Feifei, Wu Zhan, Xiao Qian, Hou Ruoying and Liu Yaoshi,” Liu Yaoshi announced the name list. These were the ten people from the Chinese medicine school who got picked.
“Guo Huai, why wasn’t I called? You said that I had lots of potential during the interview,” a student from the Chinese medicine school said loudly. Lots of people knew who he was, he was Duan Tianya, a third-year student. His grades were ranked top-three in the school.
“Your potential in Chinese medicine is limitless, but you treat your parents a bit too bad. You should reflect on your mistakes,” Guo Huai said softly. Duan Tianya then left the hall angrily.
“For the western medicine school, Chen Jiadi, Cao Qiankun, He Mo, Lin Luoshan, Lei Yunyun, Su Tu, Jia Xiaoxiao and Ge Yunxiang.” Guo Huai picked eight people from the western medicine school.
“Luoshan, you made it! Are you sure you want to work for someone younger than you? Not to mention he looks really unreliable. You really don’t have to do this. Based on your results, you can easily get a stable job at Wucheng Hospital after you graduate. Why would you want to work at a private clinic?” Lin Luoshan’s roommate asked.
“He’s really competent. He’s the most impressive doctor out of so many I’ve seen. His medical skill is exceptional, medical ethics is extraordinary as well. He can match the status of excellence in medical skill and ethics. I believe my decision this time is right,” Lin Luoshan said as he looked at Guo Huai standing not far away.
