Wilkommen to my blog - my name is Karin Purshouse, and I'm a doctor in the UK. If you're looking for ramblings on life as a junior doctor, my attempts to dual-moonlight as a scientist and balancing all that madness with a life, you've come to the right place. I'm currently a doctor/research trainee in oncology after spending a year doing research in the USA. All original content is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.

Lifelong learning!

I just wanted to do a quick shout out for this amazing website which I'm currently doing a course on.  Coursera does a whole range of courses for free at various universities around the world - amazing!  I've just started a short course in Community Change in Public Health at John Hopkins University, which I'm doing in my PJs and slippers in the comfort of my own home (on post nights zero days).

No vested interests, just wanted to spread the word.  I love a bit of learning, I do.
The beautiful North.  Oh, how I miss you!
Also - I'm rediscovering long lost music that reminds me of times past (you know that thing where certain times in your life have a sort of soundtrack attached to them?) - I forgot how great Snow Patrol are!  Music and medicine seem to go hand in hand with me - I feel a bit lost when I have one without the other.
