Surely being in Cam, is better for future job prospects that being like in for example Southampton. I mean for like eg International wise.
not necessarily. the 'old boys network' is gradually diluting, and in terms of a good medical education, Oxbridge is no longer regarded as being the best. Hence the move over to more integrated courses.

For a career in research, yes, Oxbridge may have the edge, but as a clinician, I don't think so.

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.
thanks for the calculation.

when i made a post asking xenon for rep in promise to return it, whitey posted "man-*****".

then, 3 mins later, i got neg rep worth 27 points (precisely) saying, "Enjoy....."

Calculation:

At time of rep - 4800 posts (approx)
At time of rep - 5 Gems
At time of rep - 1 x 3 months

Calculation:

pos rep:

4800/100 = 48
48 + 5 = 53
53 + 1 = 54

neg rep (as given):
= 54/2
= 27

you dont fool me whitey.

Yes, I agree. Degrees from the peninsula med school though may be rated slightly less in the traditional consultant's book.

I didn't mean it as an "old boys" network per se, but more to do with the international recogntion, the prestige of the name. And easier to get into jobs (?).

Thats why dad, always goes on about working with nurses to improve the clinical side of things.

I think providing you stick to a 'red brick' uni with established course, you can';t really go wrong. Your performance and reputation are far more important than that of your medschool.

Internationally I think again any UK medschool is well recognised and providing you have the refs, you should be OK jobwise abroad

Yes, that's the same advice from the SHOs as well. Be aware taht in the world of medecine, theres lots of mutual backstabbing.

Time for bed for me aswell - have a day of intensive revision ahead...

Why does Notts cram everything there is to know about antimicrobial chemotherapy into 2 weeks and then give us an exam straight away??? I wouldn't mind, but by the time I qualify, most microorgs will be resistant to practically all the antibiotics anyway, making this course obscelete... oh well
Take care

Tonight had certainly increased my number of posts significantly!!!
