    My understanding is that the drinking and stripping is fairly standard practice on your lot's sports nights out anyway - do you charge extra for the tummy-prodding? :p:


    Who said anything about sports?

    Not odd at all, as long as you are also suitably empathetic. I've had one or two of those myself recently (case report time!) You're not on placement at RFH at the moment are you?
    Am not there, would prefer not to say where atm, sometimes in these cases that gives it away just as much...Have been around there though and done takes. Interesting MR?

    I remember last year someone assumed I was a registrar and asked me about cases for PACES...:eek::cool:

    Problem is at my level, even with alot of the classical stuff, I see it and I still miss it! Then they point it out and Doh!

    I have had a couple like this recently. Two guys with the same 'once in a specialists career' disease in beds next to each other! Both really lovely and not very well, so I also felt guilty for feeling almost excited. It's a tough one, but I guess it's natural. Have also got very excited by some of the amazing signs I've seen while I've been in oncology and palliative care, even though most of those signs are so good because the patients are really sick. (Not sure the signs are anything special to anyone else, but they are exciting for the 4th year medical student. )
    We had a lecture where the lecturer said "oh and there's this rare thing called Wilson's disease, but I've yet to see that in my entire career" only for me to have seen a patient with it a week earlier :smug:

    Yeah, this was a while back now - it all started just over 2 years ago, and he finished treatment in July 2010. It made FY1 even harder than normal, but he is fine now.

    And he did have some lovely rubbery nodes. :p:

    I get excited by weird and wonderful cases, but I also quite like it when I see a truly classical presentation of something, especially if I'm the first one to pick up on it and get it fixed. Did this for a critically ischaemic limb not too long ago, and felt suitably smug for the next day or so.
    I guess doing Medicine makes it harder when someone close to you becomes unwell because you know all about the condition but glad everything's okay now :hugs:.

    I spent my Saturday morning in the lab irradiating things. Working tomorrow too. Intercalating is not a holiday

    Good luck! What subjects are you applying for? Tea helps with everything...

    Thanks It was between 7 of us, based on our SSC essays - the vast majority of it was written by our tutor to be honest, but it came from lots of group discussions - it's a philosophy/history of science paper so most of the discussion was conceptual rather than factual.

    What are you writing up - reporting an experiment or..?

    That sounds pretty interesting - my friend did a similar SSC called 'the Arts & Medicine', wish I'd done it too - they got to choose any piece of art to write for their essay in relation to Medicine (could be a song/painting - she did The Scream by Edvard Munch and talked about psychiatric connotations). Hows your iBSc going?

    I'm sort of involved in writing up a meta-analysis, this isn't part of my iBSc but volunteering as a research assistant. Haven't written up a paper before so we'll see how this goes...

    I think the third sentence is enough of a motivator! The faster you finish poster = move on to packing for your trip

    Anyone got any tips for wangling good deals from mobile phone networks?

    Going to upgrade soon but I'd like to get as much bang for my buck.

    I've been with o2 for yonks now, and I've heard mythical stories about people getting amazing deals through blagging over the phone.

    Its easy - I got a year of my 2 year contract half price, and a free phone that was meant to be £50.
    Just keep pushing and if you dont get what you want phone again.
    This is where my years of being employed in sales come into handy.
