    See I never get that, and doctors mistake me for an SHO and at one point a Reg (!)
    I don't think I look old either...
    I would bet you a drink of your choice that you will never get mistaken for a nurse by a patient.

    I've been mistaken for almost every grade by other clinical staff, but still get asked "when am I going to see the doctor?" after spending half an hour sorting a patient out.

    Had this with a lady consultant in clinic. Slightly awkward. Pt was a centurian though, completly with it otherwise.

    What's the difference between CT and ST? I used to be quite clued up on speciality training programmes but am pretty clueless about CT stuff and everything seems to be changing for applications in 2012
    CTs are in Core Training - Core Medical, Core Surgical or ACCS. STs are in Speciality Training, either run-through like Paeds or sub-speciality in Higher Surgical Training, Higher Medical Training etc.

    Surely, that's exaggerated in places (or at least I hope it is).

    Fitzgerald's Clinical Neuroanatomy and Neuroscience often gives good explanations and has some really excellent diagrams. It's pretty detailed too in certain areas. Comfortably enough detail for my course, but I don't know how much is necessary at more science-heavy universities.
    I've got Crossman and Neary's 'Neuroanatomy' at the moment, which is decent I guess, but I'll deffo check that one out as well, it looks pretty good. Thank you!

    doesn't bode well..

    Also I just got the pension letter through from the BMA, anyone seen it yet? (sorry if I've missed the discussion on that here!) I know the state's in trouble, people are living longer, etc and I think it's important that we take action somewhere.

    I'd be consoled with the knowledge that the money was going into saving the NHS, but I'm not too sure about that one!
