WHAT EXACTLY ARE WE REFERRING TO WHEN WE TALK ABOUT RMO?
We use ‘RMO’ to cover both ‘House Officer’ and ‘Registrar’. In other parts of the world, ‘RMO’ equates to terms such as ‘Junior Doctor’ and ‘JMO’. A House Officer is a junior doctor or dentist in the first two years following graduation from medical school.
A Registrar is a junior doctor who has completed at least two years following graduation and may or may not have entered advanced training.
HOW DID CHRISTCHURCH GET ITS NAME?
In November 1847, John Robert Godley and Edward Gibbon Wakefield met to plan the Canterbury settlement.
Wakefield believed that the colonisation of countries like New Zealand could be organised in such a way that towns could be planned before the settlers arrive. These towns would be like a community back in England, with landowners, small farmers, workers, churches, shops and schools.
Early in 1848 the Canterbury Association was formed, and it was decided to name the capital city Christchurch after the college John Godley had gone to at Oxford University.
