    I agree with you on MM. Oh I would be happy to help out on this if you ever do it.

    I think it would be popular.

    I don't know what I'd think as a patient, but right now the idea of a doctor having the TSR username 'Fairy Spangles' is pretty damn awesome!

    Elderly lady in a motorised wheelchair wanted someone to take her outside for a smoke whilst we're on ward round. Consultant said, "Go to ground floor and go outside." (we're on the 2nd)

    Lady screams, "TAKE ME OUTSIDE, TAKE ME OUTSIDE, TAKE ME OUTSIDE!!!"

    Consultant: "We can't take you outside, go..."
    "I WANT YOU TO TAKE ME OUTSIDE, I WANT TO SMOKE, THEN TAKE ME BACK TO MY BED!!"
    "We can't..."
    "****ER!!"

    We walk off, she sits there. We get halfway down the corridor, realise we need to go back the other way. As we walk past her, she lights up right there and mumbles, "F***ERS".

    Being gassed in training?? :eek3: with what??
    They all sound awesome (well the biofilm one slightly less so :p:) having a good few that you know you'll find interesting is cool

    CS gas
    From wiki
    The British Armed Forces use CS gas annually to test their CBRN equipment. During initial training they introduce recruits to CS gas by ordering them into a small enclosed space known as a Respirator Test Facility (RTF) and igniting chemical tablets to induce CS production. After recruits have carried out their CBRN drills, they must remove their respirators and inhale the CS to realise it effects and become confident their masks work.

    I've had to walk into a mist of CS spray during training

    Never streamed tears/nasal discharge like a mofo like that ever before....
    the WORST bit is when you go to shower.
    HAHAHA, do not let it get into your sensitive areas - OUCH.

    Got it today in occy health, definitely worth it nearly everyone on the resp ward is in isolation ._.



    Quick question for you two - are any medics in your year interested in extra teaching/getting distinctions?

    I'm thinking of setting up a teaching group, partly for me (cv, I like teaching, good recap) and for you guys. An FY2 did this for us at Hillingdon hospital, and now me and a few mates want to do it for the lower years.

    I know there's muslim medics/med ed but tbh I found their tutorials naff, dumbed down and formal - I'm going for an informal, no nonsense approach, high yield teaching once per week aimed purely at getting distinctions for everyone that comes.

    Now I doubt any freshers will have even opened the prospectus yet, so we might start with yr 2, then yr 2 and yr 1 next term.

    What do you think the level of interest will be like?
    I like the idea very much. Muslim Medics generated quite a bit of interest amongst keen freshers. I never went to any of their lectures because they always put them on after we had just finished a very long day of lectures and i wouldn't have made it through another hour of concentrating. I went to their small group tutorials and they were a bit basic to be honest. Well worth going to, but could be better. If you want to make this happen I would suggest checking out the timetable of the year that you are targeting so you can put your lectures/tutorials on days that aren't so full on.

    The way you describe it, I would definitely attend.

    As a side note, Hillingdon hospital is so far away! I had my FCA tutor meetings up there. Took me longer to get there than to get through the tutorial :\

    Eugh. Shame I'm now finished on cardio, I liked cardio. Consultant: 'you got the diagnosis right, but you need to be more confident in your presentation'...Really diddn't feel like informing them that I wasn't all that sure about the diagnosis either...

    In other news, the council man came and fixed my heating Huzzah, warmness all round. Life is good . Oh and does anyone have any views/experience of Dagibatran(thrombin competitive antagonist)? I have to do a writup on it...just looking through the literature now, but experience would be good.

    That is pretty sweet. Especially if you are used to living on £5K a year as a student!
    It's amazing how quickly you can spend it though! :eek: Non-student accommodation, council tax, commuting, GMC fees - nice reduction for next years FYs though (!), weddings etc.

    I'm interested in how this worked when the FY2 did it..? & intrigued by the aim of getting distinctions for everyone who goes! Is the content quite formulaic..? I think often the difficulty with teaching is pitching things at the right level for everyone with a bit of stretch... Would it be invitation only or you'd hope it to self select?

    My view is that when each Orthopaedic surgeon has a different opinion on what post-op prophylaxis they want for what operation and for which type of patient it is that is at odds with the Trust policy and they can't keep the FY1s they expect to be prescribing it uptodate with their whims it's a big pain! :rolleyes: Perhaps not quite what you're looking for..!

    For our year ones, learn EVERYTHING on the lecture slides and you will get a first (well not quite everything).

    No but there are much better ways to learn most of the information (quite a few lectures are unclear) and you can do a lot more visual stuff than alot of the lecturers who seem to have just swapped the blackboard for power point. My point was that for our first years getting a first is quite formulaic, almost anyone can do it if they put the work in.
