This is a little off-topic (well, still very much regarding Cambridge Medicine), but could anyone who's studied medicine at Cambridge or know anyone who's studied medicine at Cambridge give me details about the course? I mean, I know from the website that the first two years focus on "Functional Architecture of the Body", "Mechanisms of Drug Action", etc., and that Cambridge medicine course is known for focusing a lot on scientific basis rather than clinical practices in those first few years. However, I would appreciate if anyone could give me ANY more specific details to help me prepare mentally? lol
I'm very excited obviously since this is my dream course at a top university, but definitely somewhat nervous as well. What kind of books do I need to buy, how specific are their reading lists (jesus books are going to be expensive), exactly what's studied in the first two years, how many times have you considered giving up and just saying "screw it"?...I totally know that this course is going to be tough and demanding, but I would appreciate the insights of anyone with actual experience, rather than some people I've talked to who've said stuff ranging from "medicine at Cambridge is not actually THAT stressful" to "be prepared to sleep only two hours every day"
thanks in advance to anyone who's actually gone through my rambling and is nice enough to answer!
