    how can I get hold of one.
    Normally during freshers week. You'll only save a few quid though.

    Any reputable medical supply website will do. E.g. medisave.

    This. Just use the voucher, think it expires by December. I didn't use mine until actually needed to buy one - but then had to pay full price as it had expired. I bought a Littman Classic II SE and that's the standard one.

    MDU gave us a mini Oxford handbook of clinical medicine for free for joining, don't think the year below got them. So incredibly useful!

    The MDU gave us a medical dictionary. The other group were handing out a clinical examinations handbook which is actually really good.

    Wouldn't have minded an oxford handbook tho.

    The BMA are giving away medical dictionaries to members who bring a friend to some event, and if you go along as a non-member you get a signed copy of K&C. Can't remember when/where, else a new copy of K&C would have come in handy next year.

    Can someone please reiterate the reasons why we're going into this profession?

    I forget mine immediately after the interview, and need them again now that I'm crippled by debt and other friends are 'living' on 45k

    Thankfully the vast majority of my friends are either on JSA or working pretty much minimum wage.

    If put on the spot now and made to reinterview, I'm not sure I could explain why I want to do this.

    I had to do one of those induction days before I could start volunteering in a hospital...spent about one and a half hours explaining how to evaluate the potential contents of a box, then how to prepare yourself for lifting it, then...eventually - lifting it. :shot:
