We take our work habitus for granted and assume that others must understand it. I’ve come believe that this is not the case; in my own situation I find that people wonder whether I’m a real medical practitioner. Part of the problem is that the American MD degree is equivalent to a MB ChB in the UK. British MDs are rare. So I thought I would try to clarify matters on my web-page by adding a short resume of how I came to be a medical microbiologist and what the daily work of such a person entails. Please let me know if it can be improved.
