The blog’s going to need a new strapline…

close

Warning: This post was published more than 9 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 9 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Doctor's Badge

After five years, four homes, eleven housemates, seventy assessments, nine weeks in Canada, litres of sweat, countless tears, innumerable smiles, and a large dose of hard work, I was utterly overwhelmed today by receipt of the news that I’ve somehow successfully qualified as a doctor.

I guess the real work starts in August, when I take up my Foundation Doctor post.

This 1,337th post was filed under: Health, University, , , .

Well… congratulations! It’s going to be sad to see the old strapline go, but such is life…

Many congratulations again, and the very best of luck for your future.

Dr. Simon!! Sounds good. You worked hard for it.
Sorry I have not contributed for awhile. my own health has required many doctors. Kidneys are going-I go in for a fistula Thursday so they can do dialysis if necessary.
I got my electric chair about a month ago.
It will give me a new career.
I am going to be a hit man.
For a small fee I will run over the toes of people you don’t like.
Perhaps I can go to the UK and my super doctor friend Simon can make me whole again.
Wishful thinking.
I know you will be a good doctor.
Good luck on a long successful career.
Just never forget us little people when you become famous.
Mort

Thanks for your comments!

Mort – I hope the op goes well for you. In my experience, having an AV fistula results in endless fascination from medical students all wanting to feel it…

Good luck in your hit man career… and I’ll certainly not forget you when I’m famous!
