    I've never felt like this, but there are some applicants in the main medical forum I just want to hit in the face.

    Have you seen that thread about how intense the medical degree is? I hope to God most of these are trolls.

    EDIT: I just noticed some of them have managed to leak into this forum. FUUUUUUUU
    I agree. Serious douchebaggery going on.

    Hmm, multi-quote doesn't seem to be working for me. If you press the buttons is it meant to just appear in the quick reply box?

    Anyway, I'm really enjoying everything so far! The social side, the course... the lectures aren't as interesting as can be because it's just the basic science at the moment, but next term we're getting a lot more into the meat of it. We'll see how I'm feeling in a few months/years, but I'm optimistic at the moment!

    I had a bit of a drunken thought last night. Do you reckon drinking a pint/litre of home made ORT before you go to bed would help alleviate a hang over?

    /Ponder.

    Does such a website exist where you can type in a person's list of symptoms and it gives you a differential diagnosis?

    I wondered this too! ORT tastes minging but I guess when you're drunk you won't even care about the taste.

    What do you do on call? Ours seem so boring, unfortunately!
    Just shadow whatever doctor I happen to go with, maybe take bloods, cannulate, do ABGs occassionally, and just help out with any paperwork stuff. Luckily the docs I tend to go with are really excellent at giving off the cuff teaching as we go around so I get quite a lot out of it.

    I'd probably feel more optimistic if I felt like I'd actually done some medicine. In semester one I'll've done surgery (first rotation, just getting used to things), psychiatry and paediatrics.

    We do pretty much everything every year (exception being obs/gynae, which is 4th year). Has its advantages and disadvantages. Not sure which I'd prefer.
