It has been a pleasure to teach at both undergraduate and postgraduate level many ‘bright young things’ some of whom are in paediatrics and now more than a handful of former colleagues are indeed consultants. Although principally aimed at undergraduates this page contains a few useful tipsters as to how be a better paediatrician.
The article below appeared recently and reminds us of the need to constantly learn and have the correct set of attitudes to work. I think the introduction of shift working has the potential to deprofessionalise working attitudes.
Here is another article link specifically for undergraduates.
And here is another, which we can all learn from. This is verbatim and I have been given permission to show this by the family concerned. It represents the antithesis of good communication practice.
(see also my philosophy of care page.)
I also include a podcast on reproductive aging recorded for the
Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in 2009 with Dr.
Mandish Dhanjal of Imperial College London and Dr. Anna Kenyon (UCLH).

Finally a short presentation in the format of an interview with Chris Jones, which forms part of the MSc in Fertility Management offered by Edge Hill University, in conjunction with Liverpool Women’s Hospital.
