    I used snell's clinical neuroanatomy. Quite a large book but nicely broken down so you can dip in and out with ease. Also has a clinical relevance section at the end of each chapter and questions to help consolidate.

    Crossman & Neary illustrated Neuroanatomy is a good book

    Anyone know of a good pathology resource?

    Used Dr Najeeb for physiology which was great I must say. (even though it took quazillion years to get through the lectures)!

    Depends what you mean by 'resource'. In terms of textbooks, I love Robbins' Basic Pathology... I find it presents the important info in a clear and readable way. I hear the pathology book from the 'At a glance' series is good too but I am guessing it might not be so detailed... I haven't used it so I'm not sure.

    Second Robbins basic pathology. Great book and goes into a good level of detail for most things (especially neoplastic and inflammatory diseases)

    If you want to know more about a particular disease then honestly just Google it and you can probably find a decent review which will be more up to date than any textbook

    Got an interesting e-mail from UoM the other day day about Man Met and UoSalford opening a new medical school in the North West...

    Hate the idea that manchester met will be opening a medical school (and attract what sort of applicants?) and hardly addressing the problem of holding onto the doctors that are graduating here...

    Can't speak of MMU but as a Salford graduate I find that slightly alarming to say the least...

    They're heavily involved (quite well) in physiotherapy and nursing though, so maybe there is something to contribute.

    I thought the idea was that it was the well established universities with a good reputation and lots of research opportunities that had medical schools?

    I've got a similar concern like if you were to give a child a brand new plane to drive...

    To be fair, in terms of research Salford have quite a bit of biomed/pharma stuff going on at a decent level. Scale is different though of course. Reputation I feel means little -- all that serves is attraction to applicants, but if it's going to be a private venture anyway for international students, then I doubt that matters too much. Plus the UoM name will still be attached.

    I'd imagine they will still graduate from UoM.

    Sounding a bit snooty there.

    One of the main issues I can see is about where their students will train. Surely Manchester students saturate all the hospitals and general practice surgeries around the Manchester area.

    From that press release it sounds like it will mostly be aimed at internationals, so it'll probably be like the med school at UCLan.

    And it looks like Plymouth has BM BS places in Clearing...

    What do you mean by "Attract what sort of applicant"?

    It's more concerning from 1) a training perspective, this will presumably overlap with Manchester firms? and 2) widening participation, is it purely for internationals or could be a way for home students to study medicine with lower requirements, but ££££+ requirement?

    Oversubscription's just gonna get worse isn't it, with all these new schools. Or maybe Brexit will help solve that

    Gonna end up like UBuckingham I'd imagine - just taking anyone who's willing to pay for it.

    Seen a post on the BMJ called the " new lost tribe", where individuals were not able to find ST3 posts due to over-subscription. With these new medical schools opening, I wonder if this will worsen.

    Interestingly, the DGH I worked at last year was taking students from caribbean med schools i.e. about 20 americans come and do placements here for a 3 month-1 year period. I presume much £££ was involved.

    Yeh similar here. I think it's St Georges - they go to Northumbria. I've never seen any in the flesh though, so not sure how they manage to hide them away...
