Our talented medical grads in rude health

The elitist comments made by William Orr (Write Back, October 19) about the Queen's University Medical School are bunkum.

As a proud graduate of Queen's and an NHS consultant of 32 years, working with both undergraduates and graduates of the university, I can reassure Mr Orr that there is no shortage of talent and ambition.

And perhaps as Mr Orr matures he will learn that the art of becoming a skilful and caring doctor is achieved in the wards and clinics, rather than the institution from which he graduates.
