Dr Jr versus Admin. Round 1

Dr Jr has his first run-in with admin staff today. After getting a rather "threatening" e-mail claiming they didn't have any of his paperwork, he started to panic a bit.

However, on checking, Dr Jr knows he sent everything, as he has a recorded delivery report to rely on and he even traveled several hundred miles and delivered his contract by hand.

Shortly afterward, apology email arrives.


Dr Jr:   1 - 0   :Admin

The first day on the wards... sort of.

Today Dr Jr was a very busy person.

Not only did he sort out his accommodation for the next two years (with the inevitable last minute hitches and dramas...), but he had his first visit to Juniorville Hospital as well. Being a sociable young chappy, I decided to pop my head into the ward to say hi to various folks of the ward. What I saw both excited and petrified in equal measure.

It seems that Juniorville Hospital is a nice, friendly place at first glance. As I'm moving a fair distance from where I graduated, I was a bit wary of what to expect; the hospitals where I did all my undergraduate training were exceptionally well staffed and very pleasant places to be. However, I'm not so sure about Juniorville. The nurse lovingly told me "Junior doctors? We don't see those so often around here! Everytime we see one we tie them down to the chair so they can do all the paperwork that needs done."

Oh dear...

Good afternoon. And so it begins.

Good day people.

My name is Dr Jr (Doctor Junior) and I'm a recent graduate in the field of medicine. I decided to start this blog as for years, I've been a fan of many medical blogs from much more senior colleagues all around the world. Their observations, musings and comments have kept me on the go through the inevitable thick and thin of a medical degree, but now it's time to start my own journey, which I hope to chronicle.

Hopefully my trip from sane student to crazed, disheartened, cynical doctor will be slow and hopefully venting my spleen at the inevitable problems I encounter within myself and the system at large will help. This blog will display to all the trials and tribulations of my journey as a Dr Jr. Thanks for popping by. It will be a thrilling ride. I think. Maybe.
