    Went to one by the Glasgow Evidence based medical soc last month, was at the RCPSG (it was on Academic Medicine). Enjoyed it very much! Going next year too.

    The programme looks good, would have liked it if they had more cardiovascular seminars though. Hmm its in January, might end up going. Hate the drive though - takes five and a half hours to get to Glasgow from home

    Are you presenting?
    No, I was just thinking of going.

    So my tooth hurts and the gum it's attached too has swollen up, smooth rounded swelling, slightly compressible and pressing up on the tooth hurts. Thing is, I went to guys acute dental the last and only time this happened and they told me tWas because of biting oddly after some brace work. Soft diet advice etc. That was on diclofenac, tng they did xr and apparedntly it was fine.

    Wondering whether to do anything, CBS to trek up again if it's going to be nothing, but then the gum wasn't swollen last time, and would rather it diddnt get worse after I leave London and free dentistry

    and no, not gum hyperplasia . Meh.

    Question: Radiologist said she wasn't allowed to comment on my brain MRI however she did give me a copy on CD (random). Do I look? Or wait for neuro appointment? Tbh my knowledge of neuro anatomy is.....sparse at best.

    I got an email today and it was addressed to "Dr [my surname]".. maybe a bit too early seeing as I'm only in first year and have to pass a lot of exams to be able to use that title! It was still quite exciting though!

    Anyone else have their own shoes for theatre? I find it impossible to ever find my size in the communal lot.
    It's only the bright pink ones that are ever my size

    I've been single for the past 8 years. And I don't see that changing anytime soon :emo:

    I found managing uni, friends, going out and a bf a bit too much really, but I'm not sure if that's just me? Maybe I was doing it wrong!
    This is why I'm in two minds with whether I'd want to be with someone at present.

    Not really something we were going to announce on TSR but yeah, we broke up :sadnod:
    I heard :console:

    (Original post by Penguinsaysquack)
    Haha I know that feeling.. seeing that here is all medics and dentists that I come across they all seem to be in relationships...
    I know how you feel

    What freaked me out completely was being on O&G placement when I saw several girls the same age as me (23 at the time) on pregnancy #4. :eek:
    :eek: I am 23. Taste of whats to come this year...

    I got called Dr Lantana in my OSCE today which was rather odd. Also, what on earth are you meant to do for a derm exam. We had 1 day on it and I just kind of made it up as I went along :giggle:

    Put it this way, if you come to the RAG office during RAG week you'll be able to find me for once

    It's not so bad, I don't count the loose change as it is, I get people to bag them into small money bags and then I do all the rather tedious putting them into larger bags and recording how much we get before having it sent off to the bank.

    You freshers did very well that day, so I'll be expecting more of you when RAG week arrives
    Is that your ploy to get me involved?
    Tempt me with your identity?

    You can definitely expect more

    Don't they also get given a student from year 2 or above to tutor them in order to pass it next time? I seem to have seen rather a lot of emails asking people to volunteer to tutor...

    Congrats on passing though!
    No idea, sounds like an idea though :dontknow:

    CV purposes maybe? It's a pretty hardcore basic science test. There's no real point doing it if you have no intention of moving to the USA though. Bloody expensive!

    (Original post by Renal)
    You'd be far better served by MRCP which would be far cheaper, a little bit harder and much more significant in this country.

    To have some actual reason to learn all the pre-clin stuff you never actually learned the first time round. And clearly having money to burn...

    Apparently the answer to your second question is yes.
    Thanks for your replies guys.

    I only ask because of the following conversation the other day:

    "[within context of conversation] Why would I do the USMLE? I don't intend on going to the US". To which he replied (on the defensive, and as if I'd just said something stupid) "...well yeah, but it would be cool just to do it anyway, you know".

    I had something like that when I was away in the summer, is there pus in it if you really press on it?

    I just squeezed/squoze(?) all the pus out (yum) then held salt water over that bit of my mouth for as long as I could tolerate then just kept rinsing with salt water. Then got some tetracycline from the pharmacy for it, combination of guessing and my mate at home googling for me got it. And it worked!

    My skanky mouth story, I'm sure everyone wanted to know. But yeah I'd just go to the dentist, probably easier. Or get some of that corsodyl mouthwash, it's brutal
