Medical school can never really prepare students for the job. Placement experiences depend so much on location, who you're with and - really - just real life: uncertainty is an inherent part of clinical work. To bridge the gap between the taught curriculum and the informal curriculum, Sharp Scratch tackles issues that most affect medical students and junior doctors. Each episode typically features the student hosts and a few junior doctors (foundation year to core trainee) mostly from the larger UK cities. It's frank and thoughtful and cheerful. It's sensitive to the realities of the profession without being cynical, and without trying to justify the unacceptable. Would recommend to all medical students.
