Some semi-good news today RE my O+G job...

Have had a reply from someone from the James paget hospital saying that they can't change that rotation, however, they do have a F2 job with O+G, orthopaedics and paediatrics....now it sounds too good to be true as this is actually better than my current offer!!

Cheaper than accommodation ! But then I suppose you'd still be paying for your accom anyway, plus probably cheaper where you are

Do I give it up and try and find something in the UK or not, now that is the question?

helen- can't you look for something in the UK AND something abroad?

-

I don't want to revise, I don't really have time to revise and don't see the point anyway. The 'doctor's pay' thread particularly demotivating.

Have you tried armed forces activities stuff? They usually run (heavily subsidised) trips and stuff for uni students with no committemt to join. I've heard of people going abroad to v. nice places as well - I'm sure if you asked the right people, you could get something medicy. (if not, just enjoy a couple of weeks off):p:

I don't know what I want to do or where I want to go...

This is hampering planning somewhat. :bawling:

That £125 doesn't include anything though. I still have to pay for my food, travel around jamaica, flights, accomodation etc.

It's going to be a very expensive elective.

when are your exams?

Revision... though I swear no matter how much revision I'd done last year, I wouldnt have known a lot of the stuff I got wrong. A lot of it was general science stuff or general anatomy, which I wasn't/am not used to thinking about.

Don't worry though, you're (most likely) going to pass

True. I have faith in you however. No-one who auditioned for the MDs ever got kicked out. Fact.*

*Possibly a lie.

They're generally people who don't do much work, for one reason or another.

Yes, you all met the stringent entry requirements, and some of you will have worked hard for your A Levels. But some of you will have come straight out of grade A producing factories and suddenely found themselves in the real world where no-one cares if they get out of bed in the morning let alone study. I think a lot people aren't used to actually having to work.

Then there are other people who get ill or have other things happening in their lives that stop them revising.

Yo! I decided, 6 or 7 months into my medical course, that I'm finally entitled to join, seeing as an unconditional offer last year wasn't enough to entitle me a place here :p:.

I'm at HYMS, and enjoying myself a lot. Anyone else from HYMS?
