Keep it in the family

Elder Daughter told me on the phone that, as well as being an overworked, exhausted, but job-satisfied registrar now in a hospital Somewhere in Yorkshire, she is also an honorary clinical senior lecturer. Apparently this means that she will be lecturing medical students, which is a salutary reminder to me of how time is racing by, as it seems like only last week that she was one of those herself.
But it also shows how that teaching bug is securely embedded in the genes - ya just can't escape it! Let's hope she enjoys it. Maybe the difference will be that she is teaching young adults who are there by choice....

I think I must have met every registrar in Yorkshire in the course of my roleplay work so I wonder if I've met your daughter! Good luck to her with the medical students - in my experience only a few of the third years ever give any trouble "we've been here two and a bit years and we know everything" - - but most are great, and what's more they've got better over the years because the universities are better at picking them these days!

Elder Daughter is a very new registrar, Daphne. I'll email you her name and where she is working - you may come across her some time.
