    Yesyesyesyes. I don't understand those saying that year 1 is nothing - I don't think I could be more stressed out. Granted, I'm sure it's easier that year 2+, but it's by no means a walk in the park.

    I comletely agree. Over xmas i was unbelievably stressed out about exams, but the exams themselves were actually okay, although the first one was slightly weird..

    You really need to change your sig :p:

    I haven't been massively stressed, but my first module was basically about nothing. I shall have to wait and see how this module pans out.

    Our exams were OK apart from one, which went very wrong. Most people think they've failed, and it wouldn't surprise me.

    Ha-changed! I found my first modules fairly difficult; especially the genetics component, and health statistics. However, I start CVS, and musculoskeletal system on monday so that should be fairly interesting (hopefully). How are you enjoying UEA?

    Went to the Kumar lecture.....AND got my text book signed Massivley sad? I don't care :p: I wasn't the only one in the queue.
    Oh, and saw a fantastic discharge summary from A+E: 2 year old presented with plastic beads in both ears. Referred to ENT as very uncooporative.

    Good good :yep: UEA's great, I'm really liking it. Just finished my first secondary care placement, where I adopted at least 4 grandparents cause they were so cute And yeah, I've just started "locomotion" so that's skeletal-muscular stuff And primary care starts up again on the 3rd of Feb, so I can have some awesome free lunches again

    How's Leicester?

    Quite remarkably sad, but you're a little old now to care what other people think of you.

    Wait till you've tried to remove shiny round things from a screaming, wriggling child, with minimal equipment and parents who don't want you hurting their little darling. Then say it's funny.

    ENT have better equipment, are more skilled at fishing in ears and can do an EUA if needed. It's not just a cop out.

    Good luck for your exams! Renal is difficult! It was our first scenario in second term and I found it really hard :/

    Sheesh - we have it with auroscopes round here = lots of parents learning the ear-examination-clamp . No chance of antibiotics unless I see some convincing drums & then we'll talk about it...

    i think she was saying that the discharge summary was funny, rather than the referral itself

    I tell the parents straight off that if they're not holding on tight it's going to hurt more.

    I'm sure they are better at it, I wasn't laughing at that. I was laughing at the kiddie. What shall I do with this? In the ear! Oooo, another one!! In the other ear My Godaughter is two and has amazing tantrums, I'm very sympathetic to the unfortunate A+E doc who had to see the kid. When the discharge letter from ENT came back, it said saw this delightful little girl in my clinic referred for beads in ears. On examination ear canals were clear. Another laugh at holy terror in A+E to happy and smiley in ENT. I love kids Question: Why does everyone call them ENT, yet they call themselves otolayrngology? Is one oldf ashioned or is it just because the latter sounds fancier?
