Hi,
Just wondering as I was thinking about the contact hours for medicine - is it easier to be self-catered? or is it still feasible to do catered?
Any other opinions welcome

year 3 onwards you might prefer self catered if you can no longer make the dining hours of your digs due to your larger timetable.

Obv a good idea to pick halls next to hospital, althoug thats not always possible eg some london ones.

Perfectly feasible to self-cater, and in clinical years on placement you may not have much choice (unless you really like hospital canteen food). Depends a lot more on what you prefer/can afford.

There is a delicious irony in medics going catered - a fair few who genuinely can't cook, going onto telling their patients how important a healthy lifestyle is.

in their defence theres no point in trying to learn cooking if you can afford to ring for pizza every other day (despite being in catered already).

besides cooking takes a lot more effort and skill than reading and learning and dialling their blackberrys.

It's easier to be self-catered in preclinical years as well as clinical years. I'm in catered and I often miss meals because of other commitments (sports and social) so its a bit of a waste of money really.

I was catered in my first year, it was great. You've got plenty of time to "learn to cook"!

thats true, you are only years behind more able people, so why rush it

BBBANTER....

You're going to have to learn how to cook one day (if you can't already) and it's so much more flexible if you go self-catered.
