    A lot of people in my year are, I'm not one of them :p:




    I was just talking about psoriatic arthritis with my mum, only to realise that I haven't written about it in my notes anywhere I don't understand why I haven't - or how whoever's PBL topic it was missed it :confused:

    Ugh still need to finish off this section, discuss CRAC channelopathies and write an intro and conclusion before I'm done with this SSC.

    Am I the only one here with exams at the end of June? I still have five weeks of lectures when I go back.

    I have 2 weeks of PBL, 3 weeks of placement (with an end of module OSCE towards the end of that) and then a revision week (I think) and then end of year exams...

    Iv got my introduction and method done, So iv only got the rest to do

    I will have had 1 week before easter and all of easter to do it, yet iv only managed to get 200 words done so far.

    For me its two more case units, final clinical competancies, final medical knowledge (by 20th of may) and then an end of year. (last day of term)

    Ahh at least you have three weeks of placement to look forward to. I'd be using those three weeks to revise if I were you!

    Summer sure is near for you. I just realised we're being made to sit some mandatory progress test during the first week of July too. Apparently it's formative but a lot of other med schools do it too?

    No, placement for the module. We have 1 week of GP placement every week, and then ~5 weeks of secondary care placement relevant to the module. So I'm on rheum + ortho placement at the moment

    hello does anyone know how acceptable it is to use lectures as sources in a yr 1 assignment? I have used about 3 lectures in my reference list, just wondering if these are seen as good sources or if a textbook would be better looked upon!

    Generally Speaking Primary Sources of information (Clinical Trials, Cochrane Reviews, Guidelines) are better.

    That said the lecturers themselves may have been the primary source of data. What is it that you are trying to reference.

    Yep I've used lectures and have before and it seems to be fine For this essay there's not many topics that require in depth clinical research, I've only used one journal so far.
