    Jealous... ours let us into the medical school building after hours. No hospital access, not even access to the biomed building!
    Ours is part of the main hospital anyway, and it's open 24/7 (Obviously you need the card to get in)

    I discovered the hard way that the main doors of the hospital are locked at 10.30pm. :getmecoat:

    We have one door that's locked from 11pm to 6am. The other two (on the side of the hospital that I enter) are open all the time AFAIK.

    I have a spare room in my flat (SE London (zone 2)) which TSRers can crash in for this sort of thing if needed.
    Are you sure? I might take you up on that at some point!

    out campus buildings are timelocked for 11pm. I know several people who have only just made it out. I want to get my card upgraded to give me more access (as in I can get in/out at 2am), but I would have to work for the university...

    Bizzarely I can access chemistry though...

    till 5am I think.

    Unless the guards find you (yes, we are cool and have guards)

    Why do you think I want an uber card? :P Friend had one, so jealous but they downgraded him. Or I can become president of a soc to get access to more subject buildings, while I enjoy tailgating it is slightly risky...

    (yes I have an obsession with getting to places I shouldn't probably be and exploring)

    Library is 24 hours apart form friday night though.

    I have to pick between 2 hospitals for FocP, that I've been to the grand total of once and they're both 20 miles away...why would I have any idea where I want to go?

    In other news, I made a brachial plexus out of pipecleaners today.

    No, for surgical conferencey things.

    BUT there should be a medics meet. I finish A&E in a week, so it needs to happen as part of my real-world rehabilitation programme.

    Random question...don't really know where to post it and I don't think it warrants its own thread. How important are publications for applications for not only F1 but also ST? Does it really give you loads of "brownie points"? I'm not planning to do a BMedSci due to possible Visa issues with the new immigration thing, so I was wondering if it is really worth it for me to work hard and try and get something published to make up not doing a BMedSci. I'm also hoping to do Orthopaedic Surgery in the future so I know it is competitive and I'll need an outstanding CV. Hopefully someone can answer this.

    Thanks in advance.

    Most Australian medical students get 24 hour access to their medical school buildings, in Australia medical schools are not attached to hospitals, etc but on university campuses. Most international medical students who come here also don't understand why out library's close at 9pm, etc. Although I wish it was 24 hours, but yeah theres simply no demand for it here.

    Bah I loath neuroscience. Does anyone know an easy way to learn it?

    also I am depressed at how prolific I am on TSR. In fact online in general. :sigh:

    Our library is 24/7 (except friday) it is just everywhere else on campus (which most isn't hospital based or is in separate buildings) those are still timelocked though (as is the short cut building to get to my halls last year, I do not appreciate being forced to walk another 200m

    I went to a couple of career evenings and the ST's there have all said the best way to get on to the course you want want is to get as many things published, audits done (and rechecked) and conferences talked at as you can. If you go onto all the royal college of.. websites to look at specialities, they will tell you what you can do to get points. Then it's a case of those with the most points get called to interview. In short, yes, they are important.

    The thread by Jamie about specialty training is stickied at the top of the forum and has some info on this. Google "person specification" and the name of the specialty in which you're interested and you should get in the direction of some specialty-specific info.

    Short answer is yes, they do count towards your score for all the specialties I've looked at.
