    Its great to feel that your decision to apply to medical school and join the profession with the most respect and value as an employee when the government sees you as an expensive, arrogant, underworked, selfish waste of oxygen.....and the public starts too as well.
    Excellent summary.

    I genuinely think the public still has a good view of doctors. The fact that the government is actively doing everything it can to change that is one of the more depressing points of all.

    Is the max you're allowed out of programme after the FP prior to CMT two years? Is that right?
    Three years according to this

    Yeh I remember it being mentioned at some point so you gotta be careful if your F3 turns into an F4, F5... year.

    I've heard of people doing longer, but they were quite exceptional e.g. someone who helped run a paediatric hospital in Sudan for 4 years (applying for paeds).

    It depends who you ask but a lot of consultants will tell you not to take more than 2 years out as it 'looks bad'.

    For CST it's a maximum of 18 months post FY surgical experience. So even FY4 is a stretch as you'd have to go do something non-surgical for a bit.*

    I always find it weird when people use 'FY3/4' to mean working. At my med school it always referred to taking time away from medicine/going to Australia intending to spend at least half the time travelling.

    TeachMeAnatomy for the essentials, and Anatomy at a Glance. Makes things so much more bearable. Have you tried Gray's flashcards?

    Also recommend TeachMeAnatomy. If you have access to Aclands Video Atlas (or just find it on YouTube) then that's pretty useful too, much easier to learn anatomy by seeing the real thing than just reading.

    I love Acland's video atlas! I find his manner of delivery inexplicably entertaining.

    I got a couple of adult colouring books recently (for fun), and I'm really enjoying it, so I'm thinking an anatomy colouring book might be a good idea to revise for finals - would anyone recommend a particular one?

    I'm still not sure about the order of my FP preferences, don't know whether to swap numbers 2-4 around and I don't know how to decide either. Can anyone shed any light on Yorkshire (especially South) or LNR (especially Northamptonshire)? Literally anything at all!

    I found him super creepy. You know the children in leotards are his kids?

    I also recommend https://www.biodigital.com/ - which helps visualise the muscles etc.

    I did very little anatomy in first year, but I find this quite helpful, if I remember rightly you can use Facebook to login.

    On the subject of anatomy, anyone got any really neat ways to revise anatomy.

    During first year we did a heck of a lot of anatomy in 3 months then never covered it again, and I have found my anatomical knowledge is completely lacking in any bulk.

    I am after something quick and easy to do when you have a spare minute, any ideas?

    A little expensive but if you have an ipad then essential anatomy. Its great for MSK, and you can dip in and out easily. Less good for organ anatomy.
    Teach me anatomy is also a great way of easily looking up MSK.

    If my first two FP options are ones with high scores and my third one is one with a lower score. How likely am I to get into it? Is there a chance I'll miss it completely because people ranked it first and second but might have lower scores than myself?

    I was considering putting a thames deanery first then a diferrent deanery second but now tempted to place 2 thames deaneries before my third choice.

    Didn't Bob Acland recently pass away? Sure I remember our anatomy lead sending an email out about it.
