Post night-shift insomnia strikes again.....
I thought it might be a good idea to have an "introduce yourself" thread in here. It seems we have a lot of people with a lot of different skills and interests, and it would be good to know who everyone is.
I'll get the ball rolling.
I'm Tallaght01. I've been trying to incorporate the word "yizzer" into my vocabulary again recently. It was my favourite word at school
I'm a doctor. A neonatology registrar to be precise. I'm from Tallaght, but I currently work in Glasgow. I love it there because I've a deep interest in public health/socio-economic determinants of health. Glasgow has possibly the most deprived communities in Europe. Not going to stay in hospital medicine for a lot longer though. Gonna work abroad again from next september. When my feet are less itchy I'm hopefully going to pursue a career in public health back in Ireland.
My main interests within medicine are:
1) socio-ecomic determinants of health
2) Health of fostered/adopted kids
3) Epidemiology of infectious diseases (HIV in particular)
4) The word "Yizzer"
5) Oh, and neonatology
I also did a BSc in Biomedical sciences before I went to medical school, so like the nerdy science chat that goes on here sometimes too
