    As far as I know, there aren't any catered halls at Keele. You used to be able to buy a meal-plan for the year, which provided most weekday meals in the Comus restaurant, but I've just had a quick look at the website and the meal-plan doesn't appear to exist anymore.

    I think they just introduced it this year! Yeah, you are right though, there is no meal plan on the website. Apparently, its not in Comus anymore though, but at Hawthorns Restaurant instead (with the 'catered' block being in Hawthorns itself).

    Did anyone else read that part on the offer letter which said that we should join a Medical Defense Union? Any idea what that means and how we should do that?

    The defence unions are basically there to help you out and provide free legal advice etc if someone decides to sue you basically. Membership is free and you will find that on the first day at the medical school there will be a stall within the medical school where you can sign up (it is time tabled in anyway). They usually give away freebies also which is always good

    During freshers week do we need to go to the medical school building at all?
    This is the first week.

    On Monday, you will do a lot of administrative stuff like registration but you will also get your white lab coats (which do make you feel like a proper medical student!). We’ll introduce you to the Medical School, the course, the first year and some of the things you’ll do as a medical student.

    Tuesday is spent getting to know staff and, importantly, your group for your Problem Based Learning. There will be lectures and in the afternoon the “Great Egg Challenge” which is a light-hearted way of getting to know your new group. There is a reception with all the staff in the late afternoon where you will be able to meet other students, and your student mentors from Year 2.

    On Wednesday morning you will start your first case. This is part of a clinical story you will study through the first few weeks. This session will help you work out what study you need to do before Friday. Yes, your course really has started.

    Thursday is exciting as you have your first Anatomy and Histology sessions –so in labs and the Anatomy suite rather than the lecture theatre or seminar rooms. Don’t worry-we all felt a bit odd the first time!

    On Friday you have your “wrap-up” for the PBL case so that you can check that you have covered what you should have for that week. You’ve survived your first week!
