    I go to class for four hours a week...

    ...and Uncle Sam pays for that, and for all my living expenses, so that I can loaf for the rest of the week and do no work.

    I'm in my last year of Pharmacy school in the US, which consists of a year of clinical rotations. This basically means I work 40+ hours a week at a site under a licensed preceptor (sometimes learning, but mostly working) all while paying tuition.

    The payoff is later, but man, paying interest on tuition while working sucks balls. Still, many other professions do it too, so I try not to whine too much.

    You don't get paid a stipend or anything to help compensate for that?

    Nope, it's still technically school. Medical doctors do it for longer, if memory serves, but I'm not sure if they get any pay from their sites.

    I was under the belief that medical interns get paid for their work... :\

    Medical interns get payed very little. But then again it is when doctors learn most.

    Hadn't noticed him when I posted, but he is not forgotten.

    Never had the time to meet him.

    Now there's some names I remember. Rosie and Jarinor were here when I joined, but Quethim and Chalupa were the newbies back then.

    Of course not! I'm merely curious. I'mn't female. I understand that're things in life that're important, and don't involve me.
