    Hmm, I think I enjoyed O&G as a specialty - but as a 5th year rotation it was a bit of a nightmare. We still have a 'deliveries requirement', so I had to be signed off as having done 4 normal deliveries by myself... & no normal deliveries seemed to happen whilst I was there.

    So in the end all the joy was sucked from the experience as I became increasingly sleep deprived, depressed by not going home at the weekends (was a DGH) & panicked about needing to consolidate learning for the written exams whilst trying to get enough deliveries.

    This is a totally random thread for you to ask for help though. Go and look for something more sensible and relevant.

    I'm really enjoying Obstetrics. I thought it would be something i was interested in and i'm glad its followed through to the practical bit. It helps that its not overrun by students in Portsmouth (unlike Southampton) and that the midwifes are nice to us!

    Shame the hours are so rubbish...It's in my top 3 of things i'd like to do though.

    I've just got back from the RCOG Med Students and Young Doctors Evening... It was really good - I'm all fired up for O&G again!
