Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. From what I've read on here, all Combat Med Techs seem to do is put up tents and occaisionally put a plaster on someone who's fallen off a Challie 2.

    If that's the case, how much will I need to swot up on Grey's Anatomy?

    (The book, not the TV show...duh.)
     
  2. You forgot painting boxes!!!
     
  3. Another fine example of Narcoleptic's razor sharp wit.
     
  4. hey don't forget the sweeping up...Man was i whizz with a bass broom
     
  5. This is my recommendation for a pre-hospital care text. Well written, evidence based and delivered at the right level.
    Hope this helps :D

  7. dont forget - you're still a trainee until you have passed your class one course

    and yes, life in your first posting after phase two training (when you are a class two medic) may appear pointless and dull, but you are still learning the trade.

    Hopefully you'll pass your class ones first time (if you put a little effort in on a regular basis), get your your first stripe - then youre off!

    Off to a teeth arms unit - and you are it! the medic - doing the job with the knowledge and experience that youve learned from your first post.

    good luck and enjoy
