    Eponyms annoy me. It's just being purposefully mysterious.

    But they're great - Cushing's? Addison's?

    So much shorter than calling them the real thing normally - mucocutaneous lymph node syndrome or Kawasaki disease? I know which I prefer :p:

    Lulz. Talking strictly anatomical eponyms, I'm cool with with lots of them: e.g. Adam's apple, Achilles tendon. And the Circle of Willis - which, let's face it, will just never be the cerebral arterial circle. But then others like the Angle of Louis & the Wolffian Ducts just upset me (this distinction seems rational in my head ).

    I haven't heard that one before

    I don't mind anatomy. Got raped by metabolism this morning though. With a hangover too. Painful.

    Oh god I hate writing up MDT cases.

    The actually patient journey is quite interesting but the markscheme seems to be set up such that this has little marks and despite the way this is decribed as a piece of work to highlight other professionals involvement half the marks are for the clinical aspects and another quarter for reflection. As this is formative it means you could easliy pass without even mentioning any other team members. Whether this is an intentional FU to the GMC by imperial I don't know but it is anyoing as I wanted to actually do what the fluff said which was To actually look at an MDT case rather than pick a patient who was seen by a physio at some point and basically just needs a doctor. Bah.

    At least metabolism isn't taught by angry retired surgeons.

    Has anyone got access to this paper please?

    Why does bone matrix contain non-collagenous proteins? The possible roles of osteocalcin, osteonectin, osteopontin and bone sialoprotein in bone mineralisation and resorption. Roach, Cell Biology International (1994) 18, 617–628

    Had a look for you but it doesn't look like their website supports any kind of Athens/Shibboleth type thing.

    My online library thing is telling me that there's full text access, but it's not taking my uni log in details. Thanks for looking though

    My return here can be attributed to having absolutely **** all else to do tonight. Missed my entire day which included my first SSC session of the year because I was ill this morning, suddenly felt ok again, made the trip to euston, started getting stomach cramps as soon as I entered the foyer to the cruciform, vommed, turned back to euston, went home, slept for 4hours.

    My conclusion is that I'm allergic to university.

    I'm feeling less likely to vomit but I'm sad that I'm also having to miss rowing tomorrow in case it makes my throat worse (woke up unable to speak other than in small squeaks, much to my boyfriend's amusement who took it as an opportunity to make insults without me moaning at him) and I NEVER miss rowing!! I shouldn't be more bothered about this than my course but I am...

    This. I've only been in medical school 28 days and I'm finding anatomy terribly tough. And Cambridge is apparently one of the best for anatomy teaching. Does every medical school make you learn everything apart from neuroanatomy in 1st year? It seems to move too fast to actually take anything in
