    Rep for some local UCLH knowledge....

    Spoiler:
    Show

    Where are the hospital entrances? Can't find a decent site map online.

    Euston Square then Warren Street look like the closest tubes - are they actually?
    & if you Piccadillyed it to Russell Square - would you have to walk round or is there a back way in?
    The hospital entrances are on Euston Road and theres a back entrance off Gower street around the back of the medical school - Cruciform (big red cross shaped building)

    Euston square is very close - you cross the road and walk around a corner to get to the Euston Rd entrance, Warren St is slightly further away, a few minutes max, you walk up university St past the Cruciform, circle slightly to go through the back entrance. Both of these are within 5 minutes, easily. Russel SQ is in the other direction and so about 10-15 minutes away, which is pointless, I would in that case get off at Euston proper and cross the road, pass the Welcomme through a small square where the Quakers Friends House is, then you turn right walking straight and should see one of the entrances, if you get lost, head toward the massive unmissable red building, the back entrance is around the corner.

    Don't go into the lower building that looks like the back entrance - that is the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson (maternity wing) - you can get through to the main hospital through it, but it requires basement navigation which is easy to get lost in if you don't know where you're going, and you need access badges to get through the door. There is no normal throughfare as far as I know. - The UCLH back entrance is a circle revolving door the EGA is a normal door. Simples.

    Yes, I'm based at UCH, I usually go through Warren St coming from Kentish Town, but Euston station dosn't make much difference, you'd still be there within about 5 minutes.

    oh sorry from Euston you go through quaker house first and then past the welcomme and the union should be to your left theres usually a crowd in the morning heading for that direction. If you come from Warren St then exit turn right , walk up to where the subway is, then cross the road and keep going up, that takes you to the cruciform.

    It most certainly is.

    We've had two weeks study leave to learn/revise everything from year two (and year one thoeretically as they can still throw that into end of year exams). Now that's messed up. :/

    Last year, the second years only had one week! :eek:

    Try having a FIFTY THREE week academic year which includes 1 week for christmas, easter long weekend and 1 other week as the only time off and 4 days between last day of firms and first exam which actually starts after everyone else in the medical school/university has finished for the year.

    ....Then coming back two weeks later to start final year firms.

    As far as I know it's already been changed.....though it took a GMC "recommendation" for it to happen.

    Finals are also being moved to March which means having to resit won't mean losing your job.

    Have you figured this out yet?

    (Original post by Medicine Man)
    I'm probably being a bit thick here but with deep brain stimulation, do you stimulate or depress the subthalamic nucleus? It involves using a depolarising block which stimulates the STN, but surely stimulating the STN as the name of the procedure suggests means you're infact stimulating the GPi and thus inhibiting the ventral thalamus and subsequently the motor cortex from executing movements, which isn't what you want? Or have I completely got the wrong end of the stick? :p:

    Can anyone explain it to me please?
