I found this on a website- thought it was funny:

What is a registrar?
In answer to the question asked: A registrar falls somewhere in the more senior end of the hierarchy of medical student, intern, resident, registrar, consultant ("attending").


The Medical Food Chain

Consultant (Attending)
Leaps over tall building in a single bound
More powerful than a locomotive
Faster than a speeding bullet
Walks on water
Gives policy to God

Registrar (Fellow)
Leaps over small building
More powerful than a steam engine
Fast as a speeding bullet
Walks on water when sea is calm
Talks to God

Resident
Runs around small building
Can spell locomotive
Imitates a speeding bullet
Is a world class ice skater
Relies on God

Intern
Runs into small building
Recognizes a locomotive
Jogs occasionally
Learning to swim
Prays often

Nurse
Lifts up tall buildings and walks under them
Kicks locomotives off tracks
Catches speeding bullets in her teeth
Freezes water with a single stare
Is GOD!

I don't think that's an American hospital hierarchy you are looking at. The link suggests it's Australian. Here we have no such positions as registrar or consultant, nor is there an intern any longer. The hierarchy (and don't quote me on it) is more like:
Department Chairman
Various house physicians
Attendings
Fellows
Chief resident
Senior resident
Junior resident
Med student

Yeah, is saw it was Australian. Just thought the descriptions were funny. You can line them up with American though.

Interesting that nurses dropped off the list.

Nurses are in a whole different hierarchy. In hospital systems, you have the Doctors, and then you have pretty much everything else. Completely different management, reporting, everything.
