    There is nothing funny whatsoever about my current condition. I need to drink quite a lot of water and go to bed.

    Jeez, that is LATE! When do you go back for fourth year? I'd be pissed if my year extended much past the start of June, nevermind encroached the start of August.
    we go back on the 30th Aug. so not much of a holiday to be honest considering we only had 2 weeks off for christmas and 1 for easter.. sad times. and I swear we dont learn much more than any uni that finishes up earlier.

    but I go back on psych, so I kind of hope it will be able to have an extension of my holiday into october

    You have to tread carefully back there, piss anyone off before you've made a name for yourself and the wrath of the subscribers will fall heavily on you :p:

    I just a conversation with my mum and now I'm confused. I always thought it went:

    University -> FY1/HO ->FY2/SHO -> Reg -> Cons.

    She then mentioned about ST1/ST2. Now, I always thought this was just the first two years of your SpR training. However, she's spoken to a FY2 who's told her that it's not and it's seperate. I.E, it goes like the above but with two years of ST between SHO and reg. When did this pop up? I've always said the former in interviews/discussions and I've never been corrected.

    I'd have thought I'd have been wrong as he is already in the system but why have I never realised this?

    The impression that I get is that the MMC levels don't match up perfectly with the old jobs, so the old SHO overlaps with F2/ST1/2, and an SpR trainee isn't a reg yet, despite what the job title may imply.

    I think of it like this:

    F1 - provisional registration
    F2 - full registration, take MRCS/P Part 1
    The CT1/2 years are core medical or core surgical training - so you rotate through blocks to get general experience. Now on SHO rota - generally SHO is anyone who isn't a reg
    ST3 - Finish MRCP/S now you go onto 'higher' training usually in a subspecialty
    ST-8/9 Registrar grade, lots of teaching, nights/stress.
    CCT - then consultant job is you can find one, or associate specialist. Generally SAS grades are reg - ie MRCS/P +ve, not part of a training job.

    Now, run through jobs are programmes that are put together from end of F2 to CCT in a specialty - this means they arrange rotations in core and higher training for you over the years generally in the same geographical area with yearlyish moves. This is good because it obviously means you have a job for the next few years - but also geographical stability so you can if you want start thinking about family/houses/settling down. You can of course advance through the grades without run through, but this means finding yourself jobs 'one grade up' - so potentially moving every year to advance through the ST ladder - of course there arn't conveniant jobs every year, so many people end up in SAS jobs - because whilst it isn't formally in the training structure, it does count towards experience, and perhaps most importantly, money. Should you find yourself CCT +ve without a job, you can do associate specialist jobs, although this means that you are technically still accountable to a consultant because you are not one. Oh and I know F1s who take the membership part 1 because if you can do it, it looks really good for CT applications, apparently.

    medical life in a nutshell, enjoy.

    I wish I was back where you are :o: Feeling far too adult!

    Poor you being so ill! All recovered now? Congrats for passing!

    I'm at the terrified stage when it comes to the job tbh! Start my induction on Tuesday but feel like I've forgotten everything I've learned since finals finished... (and still have a house full of boxes to unpack!)

    I'm starting with paeds, which should be interesting :yep:

    That would be incredible - if there was something on the web to cover the basic sciences, then lectures themselves could cover the details, the latest research on a topic and give a clinical perspective on things... At the minute, I find there's not enough time in the hour to cover both properly =\

    TED is incredible... the most dangerous kind of procrastination though as it's far too easy to justify watching!
