OK, promised I’d post this awesome pep talk from recent boss.

As 1st year doctors, we get called all sorts. Now rather pompously called foundation year 1 doctors, previous generations were called (pre registration) house officers. This evolved into many iterations of naming… typically along the flattering lines of being called “houseplants”… I guess we brighten up the place but don’t actually achieve very much most of the time 😀

Recent boss commented on this fact, as we still refer to ourselves as house officers despite the rebrand. In his words;

“If it look like a housedog, smells like a housedog, and barks like a housedog…well… *shrugs*”
