At the moment I'd love to specialise in Paeds/clinical genetics, however, I don't have any particular desire to be a consultant by age x. I'm planning on working abroad for a while, perhaps New Zealand/Aus/New York at SHO level. then I guess I may wish to start a family etc, so i'll just have to wait and see what happens

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)
Cardiology. Naturally. I think my dad's enthuasim is rubbing off.

My first clinical firm is within cardiology so I may be contacting you for help Unfortunately Prof Hampton has now retired - It would have been fab to be attached to his firm.

Is it paid well? I was thinking cardiology would be a possibility as well.

Well my dad hasn't done badly out of it. He got an invitation to be the Head of Cardiology in Seychelles once. (you know the tropical island?) This is because he was invited to do a governamental exchange type thing. And Evne though I was about 4 at the time, it must have been class. He might consider retiring there actually, with a post in some uni.

I'm sure if you did private, you'd easily get that much money.

Hell, he probably went to school with some of the interviewers.

No, I want to see what I can do for myself and not dependant on my dad. I know that I can get into my insurance unis, like Leeds etc. So I know that in teh futute that I will be a doctor, but whether going to a good uni will affect your future career path. Like rethinking my strategy.

all medschools are good though... there really isn't anything to choose between them job prospect wise (although admittedly newer ones may take a while to be as well respected)

Well he's actually done some private work, then did some lecturing. But now he plans to drop the career altogether. I think hes moving onto full time course fishing by the looks of it

Hey, i had that book when i was 16 (yes, sad I know) and lost it. I remember it gives an 'on-call rating' with a certain number of bleepers telling you how time-consuming the job is!

Surely being in Cam, is better for future job prospects that being like in for example Southampton. I mean for like eg International wise.
