Most lucrative degree qualifications

What are these well paid Junior Doctors moaning about ? compared to their other graduate peers they appears to do very well indeed. However I anticipate this does not reveal the full extent of hidden costs of being a junior doctor … Examinations can set you back £2-3 K  per attempt , Much of the time is spent working antisocial hours putting up with some diabolical conditions , ever more antagonistic management and regulation by fear .

for example a  survey of core surgical trainees has shown that the average cost of training is £10 240, including both mandatory and additional courses
