    Who was it that said before about audits (I think Jamie?) that it's not worth being a data collection donkey for an audit - it's only worthwhile if you actually were important in it - is that true?
    Yes and no.

    You get points for audit. Maximum points for designings, completing, improving, repeating and closing the loop on your own. Less points for every bit of that you miss out.

    However, if you can show involvement in a range of audit projects, as well has having one or two of your own - you're on a winner.

    What about Canada? Or is that pretty much just like the US? I think Aus is probably top of my list at the moment. Any idea what kind of thing you want to do?
    I did my final year elective at McGill. It was great, they treat you differently as a medical student there. Much more responsibility, much more part of the team. Sounds like it's very similar to what digitalis is talking about in the US but without some of the issues regarding private health. They are quite anal about paperwork which is annoying but well worth it.

    No, "what health professionals are involved in the care of haematological patients" and "discuss the psycho-social effects of x on the patient/family/society" will be the banes of your life :p:

    If you haven't got any student BMJs yet this year, go on the BMA website, log in and you can check your personal details. There only seems to be space for one address in there, if it's not your uni address you can change it and you should start getting your sBMJ in the right place.

    Ah. Damn. :p: I have none . But I think it would be a bit weird to go round asking every A&E department I go to if they've got an audit on?


    Also lol @ TSR advertising St Georges University medical school to me (not the one in the UK the one in the caribbean or wherever it is...


    I feel a bit scared at the moment in A&E as basically I see the patients and then the reg does a quick check of the history and examination and then discharges :/ :/ :/
    I'm sure I'm gonna kill someone, wtf do I know about medicine.

    So I'm doing a library project SSC at the moment, it's so much harder than it seems! Apparently we need to show evidence of critical evlauation. Does anyone have any idea what this means? I presume just discussing the evidence presented and say what's good/bad about it?!

    I would say critical evaluation would be a critical appraisal of a paper. There are guides online (www.medicine.ox.ac.uk/bandolier/.../What_is_critical_appraisal.pdf) showing you how to appraise a paper. It's like you critique the sample size, the method of the research (randomized or not), comment on the results, was there bias, etc. Not sure if this is what your school is looking for when they say "critical evaluation". If it was me, I would assume that's what they are looking for but obviously a shortened/brief few sentences about it vs. a whole essay on one paper.

    Arn't you on your Bsc Year?

    What has made you so disillusioned with it? You can go and get a job doing something else if you really have fallen out of love with it.
