Eventually I'd love to work in a major teaching hospital etc, however I'll go where the jobs are...

I have friends who are HO's and the one's in 'district' hospitals rather than the teaching hospitals seem to 'learn more' and be more valued as part of the team. The same can be said for clinical attachments as a medstudent.

Thats why I was thinking of going to a respectable hospital for HO and SHO, then go for a small town for consultantship. They would love to have someone from a respectable hospital. But when you do ahve consultantship you can easily go to a bigger hospital.

My dad sort of gave me hints on going about this. He should know as he is a professor and used to be the Vice president of the Cardiology association
Wow, good for your Dad Matt is impressed.

But dont you think you would get a more valuable experience and better understanding from doing a consultantship in a larger hospital?

Yes, but if you want to be a consultant cardiothoracic surgeon, for example, there are few centres available in the UK, especially none in small town hospitals. I quite like cardiothoracics, either that or neurosurgery (equally difficult to find places to train)

Lol, unless you're about 12, there's not much chance of that happening

Hmm, my dad has this fascination with the knowledge of nurses. Like he will probably want me to do some time in the wards with nurses when I graduate just to help them. As they have a different knowledge base to doctors and we can learn a lot from them. More practicable ward workigns of course.

I'd love to have Dr. Kelso off 'Scrubs' as my consultant. I don't know why, must have this sadistic streak running through me.

Yes, but getting a consultantship is diffucult in large hospitals. So go for the easier route, and do it in a smaller place, to get the consultantship, do a few years there. then move to a bigger hospital for work as consultant. Then upgrade your experience.

You probably wouldn't mind him as your consultant, either.

That is an interesting theory i do admit, but limited by speciality. Do you know what you want to do eventually? (as in what field)
