Off at a tangent

So, unlike that interview from a few years past, I actually got this job. It’ll be a logistical headache but otherwise should be good.

Completing the loop

June 11th, 2010 No comments

No, I’ve not done an audit. That remains one of the tick boxes I haven’t managed to tick over the last four years. With any luck, it won’t matter too much.

Instead I’m about to prepare for the start of my final year in the same way as I ended my first – I’m going for an interview. This will be the third interview since I’ve started Uni and almost certainly will be the last before a proper job. Indeed, I don’t even get an interview for my first two years, so this will be the first one until I apply for specialist training – scary! Although this sounds rather trivial, it has a bit of a deeper meaning which I’ll leave for a later post.

The job is something I have a bit of an interest in – mixing both medicine with some IT and creating some podcasts to teach clinical skills. I think the end idea is to try and research how effective they are. This ticks another of my interests – medical education. All seems rather perfect! They want someone working through the summer for a minimum for 4 weeks. This is where I start to worry a little. Between coming back from Florida and starting my elective, I do have 4 weeks free. However, I’ve also volunteered to go to T in the Park with the Red Cross. Hopefully it shouldn’t clash too much, but I don’t really want to have to pick between them. I personally don’t see a terrible amount of people applying for this, but I shouldn’t get complacent. We’ll see how it goes!

In the mean time, I’m back in Glasgow for the Snow Patrol concert on Saturday. The flat is empty apart from me and I’ve taken to putting things on the wall to keep me sane. Pictures when it starts to look impressive!
