    Paedriatic plastic surgery or microsurgery. I'm still at the I'd be so cool phase lol and I just started medschool. Basically, I want to be a plastic surgeon but not for the boobs.

    If I had to be realistic and less dreamy, orthopaedics or ophtalmology. Tbh all I know for sure is what I don't want but then again, I just started.
    There is nothing dreamy about plastics! If that's what you want then go for it.

    Ophthalmology is the highest paid specialities with more private work than the vast majority of specialities and is often one of the most competitive. But nothing is out of reach if you're dedicated.

    Sounds like a medical applicant who saw a picture of the heart in his AQA biology textbook and knew cardiac surgery was for him :sexface:
    AQA teach the heart? All I remember them teaching was quadrats and shrews.

    Heart physiology in AQA biology at AS?

    But the EMPA on maggots will always stand out for me, that material was publishable - wish I kept my results.

    All day hypospadias repair lists are in your future.
    I thought that was the job of urologists.

    I did Edexcel SNAB about a hundred years ago and we did ECGs, the cardiac cycle etc. Even a bit on PCI. All during AS. It was actually a really interesting module.

    Mind you, we did all the rubbish about bioenergetics and quadrats a few months later.

    Only just started and can only say "not surgery". Probs GP if I'm honest. Locum in A&E a few days a week perhaps?

    Can be, but it's mostly done by plastic surgeons as it's technically a reconstructive procedure.

    All urologists do are TURP, TURBT, Nephrostomy and refer to general surgery plz.

    Guys I have a question:
    Say someone was studying Biomedical science, do they transfer to Medicine(assuming they want to) at the end of their second year and then study 5/6 years of Medicine from the beginning? Or do they jump straight to the second year of Medicine?

    It likely varies between schools. Transferring from Biomed into Medicine is not a given, it's usually reserved for the best of the best, and in Leicester it was a transfer into the first year of medical school.

    These biomed -> medicine transfer schemes are very rare and shouldn't be seen as a path into medicine. If you do get a transfer across, you'd start from the beginning. Medicine isn't modular in the same way that other undergraduate degrees are and there's a GMC requirement that a student studies the entirety of the degree - you can't transfer credits (which is what jumping from first year biomed to second year medicine would be).

    I really want to become a heart surgeon so I can tell people I'm a heart surgeon.

    Lots of love for cardiology. Cardiology is what I wanted to specialise in, until I had an ssc in it. A lot less fun and a lot more arguing about the tiny difference in outcomes with different anticoagulants. Sure the Cath lab was fun but at the end of the day it was just a glorified arterial line to me. Bored me to death!
    Cardiology is life. How dare you? haha
    If it was the one on the new anticoagulant drugs, it wasn't too much of a smelly fish.

    So much variety, people will come to you with all kinds of different issues, you really build up rapport over time with families, you stay put in one place rather than running around all over the place as you would in a hospital, and I just like the idea of being a "gatekeeper" to the NHS
