It may seem a bit pedantic-but i've always wondered about the context of your qualifications and how theyr plced after your name.
lets take Dr.J.Bloggs for example. He did his MBBS in 1990, He then did an Msc in 1993, he then did his MRCP in 1997, he then did an MD in 2000.
Which combination(S) is wrong or is misleading?
1) Dr.J.Bloggs MB BS Msc MRCP MD
2) Dr.J.Bloggs Msc MB BS MRCP MD
3) Dr.J.Bloggs MD MRCP
What i'm getting at is it 'wrong' to place the qualifications in a non-chrnological order? And is it wrong not to mention some qualifications-for example only mentioning MD instead of MB BS-is that misleading-due to US system?

In the UK a MD is a 2-year research qualification - a bit like a mini PhD. Only mentioning MD if you're UK trained wouldn't cause too many probs as only medics can study for an MD...

3) implies the extra qualifications stated in 1) and 2) with the exception of the MSc, but I'd just write them all out personally.
