Why should Medical Students report Sr Consultants for misbehaving? It's incredibly thick?
The bottom line is that the Senior Consultant is in control of a Medical Student's application. Say the Senior Consultant was abusing the patients. The Medical Student tells ANOTHER Senior Consultant about this. The Sr Consultant who misbehaves gets away with it simply because the one you reported him to was his friend, and simply told the Consultant when he was sober that you reported them instead of letting him get away with it. You figure out that all those years the Sr Consultant was in the hospital, he has made friends with everyone, and they all are far more likely to back him up (out of friendship/ experiences together) than to back a Medical Student who is present temporarily. Now the Sr Consultant moves it up a notch and comes in drunk. It is your legal duty to report the drunk consultant to court (or you'll find yourself in court if you are found out that you did nothing) and you end up getting the Sr Consultant heavily fined. Due to the nature of the powerful lawyers ALL doctors have, he doesn't lose his job. Also, he's a senior consultant, it's the first time he's done it so they prefer keeping him. Now the Sr Consultant is VERY spiteful, he's searching long and hard to find ways to stop you from practicing as a doctor. You are a Medical Student, he's in control of your application and has more experience than you. There is bound to be one thing that you may get wrong, and it's also very easy for the Sr consultant to NOT tell you and keep a note of it. He/she could note each and every mistake you make (not telling you or informing you) until the Sr Consultant has a list of reasons to get you kicked out. The worst part of it is that it would be unbelievably difficult (if not impossible) to move the medical student to another hospital AND this whole situation probably can never be avoided. Furthermore the Sr Consultant has POWER, WISDOM AND he's in control of your APPLICATION. On top of that, you also have the whole hospital against you as it's a given that the Sr Consultant has gossiped bad things about you. I think it's obvious that the innocent Medical Student is going to be kicked out of Medical School and the Sr Consultant is going to love it. Why is such a protocol in place? It's so stupid.... I forgot to add that I considered the possibility that if it was not in place, the Sr Consultant may have killed many patients. But the fact that an innocent medical student can EASILY be booted for being good is just making me so sad. The stupidity and corruption :(

I would advise you to seek advice from a lawyer. It is your legal and moral responsibility to report malpractice such as a doctor being intoxicated on the job.
