A newly-qualified doctor depressed at failing to obtain an attachment with a hospital hanged himself at his brother's home in Birmingham, an inquest heard.
Assistant deputy coroner Michael Snell recorded that Farakh Ashraf of Berkely Road, Yardley, took his own life.
Addressing his brother, also a doctor, he said: "It does appear that your brother was rather more affected by the fact that he had not instantly been able to obtain a position in his chosen profession.
"There does not appear to have been any evidence of previous depression or anything like that so I do not see that it is something that could have been prevented by anybody."
Moeem Ashraf said his 27-year-old brother, who had come from Pakistan, had been qualified to work as a doctor in the four months leading up to his death.
Dr Ashraf said on September 12 last year he left his brother at his home in Hey-barnes Road, Small Heath, to travel to Coventry for an exam and when he returned he discovered him hanging from a loft.
He said his brother had not left any note.
