    Apologies if this seems like a stupidly facepalm-worthy question, but obstetrics is classed as a surgical specialty isn't it? Is it a particularly competitive branch?

    I think it's surgical, given that it's generally tied in with gynaecology, training-wise.

    I made my boyfriend watch it last night and he subsequently had nightmares about all his female friends giving birth :rofl: Did you see the bit where her stomach literally flopped as the baby came out? He nearly vommed at that part :tongue:

    Ahhh I'm on 4OD and I'm currently working my way through the second series - I'm on episode 3 :p:

    And all his female friends? Surely he should be more frightened about you giving birth

    Thanks. There's a Surgical Soc talk tomorrow evening, I'll pop along then. If we join we're given a surgeon to shadow :teeth:

    Oh. Well then he shouldn't be so squeamish :p: And you should also remind of him of the career you're going to enter into

    It's not, it's separate (and so it ****ing should be!). Much of the knowledge and skills are shared with the surgeons but the training is entirely separate. http://www.rcog.org.uk/education-and...duate-training

    It's surgical insofar that you're called Mr/Miss rather than Dr and do 'surgery' but it isn't technically a surgical speciality - it's part of Obs/Gyn. In fact, obstetrics is the more medical part of speciality.

    It's relatively competitive, but not more so than other popular specialities and certainly less competitive than surgery.

    Jesus this episode has the most annoying couple ever. All they say to each other is "I love you babe" and she keeps singing all the time, and moaning about how she wasn't allowed to have breakfast :rolleyes:

    Thanks very much, both of you.
