Medical Students, like most students enjoy having a good time. After reading this pathetic attempt at an article from the Daily Mail my mind says, so what?
Although the FM would not party quite as hard as some students, the FM certainly drinks some alcohol. Indeed a wonderful night on Friday involved wine, port and beer and trying to pick up an after eight mint from the floor without using hands or knees. It was fun, it was silly, but its what we do.
But at the end of the day, 99.9% of us know that being under the influence of alcohol when dealing with patients or turning up to the wards hungover is unacceptable.
And as one wise daily mail reader pointed out, students have been doing this for a long, long time and will continue to do so.
