To understand the deleterious effects of medicine on the soul, please find time to review the toe-curling website of Dr Beggs, a fellow graduate of our year, at

We are surrounded by them. This one is worse:

I have never resented going in to do a night shift more than I do right now. I would call in sick if it wouldn't fuck all the other junior doctors over so much.

lordy - it gets worse and worse

by the way, was the ice queen the same ice queen that used to frost up the wards at our medical house job?

i look forward to her portrayal by tilda swinton in the narnia film this weekend.

There are people who get into medicine for the right reasons, and people who get into it for the wrong ones...I am truly impressed by the soullessness of these two.

I'm not sure which is worse, the self-important narratives, or the self-important photos.

I started at King's the same year that pair entered uni- I'm now on a graduate medical course (yeah, actually doing some 'revision' at the moment) Reading those bios has cheered me right up in a dark moment. I may have no money now and years of night shifts ahead of me but at least I'm not a complete twat. Yet. My favourite part was the gratuitous mention of a job in Harrods- thank god his gap year wasn't wasted...
S used to be able to remember the stuff she trotted out in her BSc finals in 2001, has recently occasionally been to some of her timetabled sessions and is the founder and elected president of the largest tea-making society in her crappy student houseshare

Thanks for linking to my website. Perhaps I was too arrogant that I posted my CV. It was meant as something useful for other people to read.

Nice to see you are all too cowardly to reveal your true identities. It's fine to have an opinion - it's just not fine to not have the balls to speak out publicly.

For "S" on the graduate course - if I taught you - I regret it immensely. I look forward to meeting you when you are an F1 trainee and some of that arrogance you display is driven out of you as you realise the realities of medicine.

If any of you would like to reveal your true identities, why not email me on - I'd love to hear from you and then we could have a frank exchange of views not based on an anonymous blog.
