    Dunno, quite fancy Emergency Dept at the moment, or maybe surgery. Something hospitally; but we'll see how clinical goes.

    Ditto, I'd love to be an A&E consultant, but probably will end up in surgery for the extra cash

    You become more and more specialised, and you have to do scary scary FRCS exams. I don't know that much about it.

    You medics are all the same - stuck in a mercenary slog which just so happens to save lives.

    I read in the Sunday Times a few months ago that Brazil was one of the leading places in the world for cosmetic surgery, largely due to its diverse population. I suppose a private jet, a villa in the Rio hills and lounging about on Copacabana beach would just about make up for the trauma of all those lectures, exams and having to spend time in the nation's public hospitals.

    Medicine rather than surgery. Probably paediatrics - maybe Paeds A&E. Alternatively, cardiology. We shall see.

    I'm also planning on working abroad for a while - Aus/NZ

    Role on graduation.

    I'm not going to stone you for not being a doctor. However, for saying that Medical Sociology is interesting, new and creative methods of pain must be brought forward. You should have come to a few of our lectures; would have put you off for life!

    No point thinking about specialising until you know what you are going to be good at/enjoy.
