    You obviously aren't at medical school yet.

    The way people act sometimes is as though if they don't screw someone over and get below an A they'll die.

    Wait and see.

    Rotations=Firms.

    Like in third year in the UK you tend to do medicine and surgery, fourth year O&G, Paeds etc etc...
    Residency=Combo of FY and Specialist training leading to consultancy
    Match=MTAS/UKFPO
    Intern=House Officer
    Attending=Consultant
    Dermatology/Radiology=Most sought after/competitive specialities in the US.


    And about the bodily fluids, standard?? Bit of blood, piss, vom...

    That was great. The 50% one is good. I remember reading some guys quote about doctors (not word for word right but roughly)

    "I'm afraid of going to a hospital. Did you know that 50% of doctors graduated in the bottom half of their class..."
