    Is it bad that I look at this and think it's got something to do with sex :o:
    It's good to know a mod has the same level of humour as me.
    If I'd got this in my interview I'd have crumbled.

    I was getting a bit of a grilling, then the interviewer came out with this;

    Interviewer - So, you're obviously pretty good at science. Do you just do science because it's something you can excel at without having an imagination? Prove to me you have an imagination.

    Me - I reckon you were quite attractive thirty years ago.

    Didn't go down as well as i'd hoped.

    Interviewer: So can you think of any advantages of euthanasia?

    Me: Ehm... free up beds and resources for other patients

    Interviewer: :rofl:

    It went down quite well I guess lol, I did feel stupid after saying that but I got the offer :thumbsup:

    it is an advantage though...would make predicting 'possible free beds' for the shift easier

    It's not really an advantage and it's an exceptionally non-holistic view of patient care. Not a dig at you, win2kpro, just probably why the interviewers laughed.

    But it would free up beds in hospitals if lots of people decided to be assisted to die.

    But that's not the reason they laughed, they laughed because it was funny.

    Yes, but when considering whether to implement euthanasia, the doctor should not begin to contemplate the alleged 'advantage' of freeing up beds when making his/her decision, at least in my view.

    I wrote words pretty much to the same effect in my BMAT essay and got a 12. The two universities that received a transcript of that essay gave me an offer. So no, I don't think they laughed at him because it was a stupid thing to say.

    It is an advantage, and it's a very practical way of freeing up resources.

    Holistic means to view something as a whole rather than it's parts. If we are to look at a patient intake as a whole, then sacrificing someone we can either no longer help or doesn't want to live will be beneficial to the whole. Therefore it's a very holistic way of looking at things.

    Stop acting like you're the sole remaining defender of morals.

    The best thing I've heard this year is from the HYMS thread, our friend hopes was interviewed about two weeks ago, and one of the questions was "what is your opinion of the NHS?" and hopes replied that he thought it wasn't run very well, to which the interviewer seemed offended and replied "I didn't think I did that bad!"

    Guess who interviewed our friend, hopes? Yes, thats right, the ex-UK health minister, Frank Dobson, who was in charge of the NHS for 10 years!.. Anyone else think that is the worst person to **** off the NHS to?

    Here's hoping hopes gets in :p:

    (Original post by hopes in the HYMS applicants 2010 thread)
    ol! urm i kinda hit a nerve when he asked do i think the nhs is ran appropriately and up to a high standard and i just said no...without any significant reason,he just looked at me and went i didnt do that bad and i was like until i realised who he was after!
    (Original post by hopes in the HYMS applicants 2010 thread)
    Frank dobson is the ex uk's health minister apparently
    Personally I felt stupid in my HYMS interview when I got this:

    Interviewer: When have you been in a situation where you realised you said something wrong after you said it.. And what did you do?

    Me: Well, I work in a store, and whilst there, I was working behind the counter, pricing up products and I got it wrong and loudly exclaimed "BUGGER!" [I get cut off by-]

    Both Interviewers: LOLOLOL

    Me: *ahem* so, yeh I turn round and realise that there is a family stood behind me, with a pair of children that couldnt have been any older than 7!

    Both interviewers: ROFLROFLROFL!

    Me: But, I apologised...

    Honestly, the interviewers laughed like they had never heard the word bugger before, it was a little creepy

    And what gives you the right to tell me how to act? When sneering at my morals you contradict yourself when you try and force your views upon me.

    Why do you think they laughed at him? I never denied that having more beds is useful, but I don't think that when you're considering someone's life you should be thinking about freeing up resources as one of the reasons you should end someone's life.

    gods sake, do you genuinely think in reality people actually take this seriously?! And would make ethical and hard decisions based on maybe they need a free bed?!

    maybe try and get yourself some dark humour..or a podium to anyone who will listen?

    I detest pretty much any form of dark humour. It's just the way I am, I think it's sickening. I also really do not want to give a 'holier than thou' view when I'm speaking, and I'm sorry if I do, but I'm only trying to present my viewpoint.
