Q2: What does it take to write a medical report?

A2: Five years of medical school, a year of housemanship, several years of relevant post-graduate training, time to read through a patient's medical records and investigation results, knowledge to understand the significance of each, the ability to synthesise all that information and present it in a format that addresses the relevant issues required by the side requesting the medical report, and finally the balls to stand by and back up what you wrote in a court of law if necessary.
