    Why stop there?

    There are a good few extra things you could earn

    MBE, OBE, CBE, (K/D)BE
    DL, even LL

    I think George Cross (GC) is the highest bravery medal you can get without actually signing up.

    Fellow of lots of things.

    Continue your research and aim for a DSc!

    Furthur proof that medics can't spell im afraid, nah...that was a genuine typo.
    I can spell! And I can write nicely. I'm doomed to fail.

    (spoken with some bitterness after my first week as a medical sec )

    Timeofyourlife - I don't know what area of surgery I want to do, but for now it certainly seems appealing, even if the MRCS/FRCS does put the fear of God into me just by its name! I think I might do a rotation teaching anatomy

    I can spell, and started off with nice writing. However, I'm afraid to say the latter no longer applies.

    I'm contemplating doing my BA in anatomy as well, but depends on how next year goes, if I find anything else I like better. Plus Cambridge runs two anatomy options - one is vastly oversubscribed and the other one sounds kinda hard and scary.

    I think I would only ever use it in a professional situation. I certainly won't be sigining all my letters BSc
    Absolutely no way; having a degree is nothing special nowadays and is just the 'norm'. When I graduate from Med school I will be doctor, but for a normal BSc it is a bit of a joke! As for a BA I will not comment...

    i wouldn't, i think it looks pretentious. i always tease my dad when heb gets post with loads of letters on... but then he does abuse his sometimes like he occasionally signs letters Major IJ McNair

    my brothers initials are D.R.J. McNair and he always gets stuff adressed as Dr. J. McNair... and knwoing him he'll get a doctorate as well :rolleyes:
