Re: Where to go from here? I'm feeling quite stuck.

Just a quickie.....What about research posts? clinical audit roles etc....? I assumed research assistant roles were equally as competitive as AP ones, although I have applied to a couple recently. And I was interested in your second point about clinical audits - would something such as a Clinical A...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

Hi Firegal. I wanted to reply to you because I think what you are feeling is part of being a first year. I am in second year, and I know that probably all of my class went through this during first year, the whole "imposter syndrome", feeling like maybe you are not good enough, and don't actually h...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. I can't do this 2. I have no idea what I am doing 3. I've always had issues when I'm in clinical posts, why did I think clinical training would be any different? 4. Nope, it's not just clinical posts, I spent plenty of my time as an RA miserable and anxious too, but I just attributed it to differ...

Re: Dissertation idea - help!

Talking about grades and years of study suggests that you're interested in whether proficiency in music is a protective factor against anxiety and depression, which is different from just playing music. I would be inclined to disregard proficiency and look at time spent playing music each week, and...

Re: UEA Interviews 2017

Just a suggestion but the forum is going to get really clogged up if people start threads for every different course interviewing, that's kind of what the progress thread is there to prevent. Last year in addition to the progress thread we had one reserve list thread which people updated with news o...

Re: The Cathartic thread - rant here!

Had an absolutely horrible day last week dealing with a family in crisis on placement and getting the full experience of the "it's not our problem, what about X team, why hasn't Y person done Z" which had me crying at my desk with frustration, with neither of my two placement supervisors around to s...

Re: Origins of your user name / avatar

Oooh, an old thread I haven't posted in. Erm, my username is pretty much just what came up when I was trying to think of a name that was representative enough of me that I would remember it, but also did not match or resemble any of my other online personas. As it happened, I was doing a lot of fire...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. What an odd day 2. Started off the day very annoyed at having to come into work (this was initially meant to be a training day but then it got cancelled, so no appointments had been made for today and all of them got crammed into tomorrow instead, leaving me with today sitting around twiddling my...
