    "The issue of extra curricula activities will be addressed" as part of the EPM. Apparently.

    Thoughts?

    :holmes:
    Great news, it's something that is currently seriously underemphasised.

    Do you know anything more about the EPM - will it still be clinical years only?

    I would honestly rather they stick to assessing clinical stuff and ignore extracurriculars - people will continue to have hobbies and participate in stuff that they personally enjoy, and maybe we'll lose some of these ridiculous clubs and societies that people only set up to talk about in these situations.

    Lol what have you done to make your record less than squeaky clean?

    The only problem I have is the ability to find and fall through almost every crack in the system (sometimes intentionally, other not). I don't even have a personal tutor anymore.

    That sounds awesome though, bit late for UROP but then so am I seeing as I didn't get what I wanted and then wasn't in the mood to apply for just ANY group...So I am going to spend some of the summer teaching probably (then maybe some phlebing I haven't decided)
    Heh a few things, had a tribunal in first year regarding some naughty business, several talks with laycock in the second about attendance and am currently ranked (joint) dead last based on e-lecture quiz performance in the third - not something I'm proud of, quite gutted actually, but it didn't stop me getting distinctions in both years and I don't feel it will influence my quality as a doctor/academic in the future.

    I'm already involved in UROP and have been since the summer after year 1 (I applied really late and got lucky, so keep trying!) - I've done quite a bit research wise, and now want to fill out my CV some more in other ways like teaching. Any other ideas?

    Naughty naughty. My greatest reprimand has been talking in lectures (and being a thorn in the side of the FEO with my ability to fall through every crack in the system, sometimes deliberately but mainly them :p:).

    Bah I didn't get the one I wanted so am now sulking :p: plus I am going to be doing a teaching placement for 3 weeks over the summer and am then going to take the rest off/work at a practice doing phleb work/audits I think UROP will have to wait till next year...

    Teaching wise you were going to set up those tutorials wern't you? any luck? I am happy to help. I am not sure if what I am doing over the sill have summer is still recruiting but look at imperial outreach...might still have some places (basically teaching for 3 weeks in a secondary school)

    I've done a small (3 minute) blog on the rise on tuition fees for the TSR blogging panel. The rises will obviously mean quite remarkable fees for future undergraduates, and will hit medical students especially hard. If you wish to take a look please feel free, any debate and discussion on there would be great. The link is in my signature.

    I am quite renowned for having a deep (and sadly monotonous) voice, I was also slightly ill when I made that so that may have accentuated things. I'm intrigued to hear yours for comparison!

    Not the cause of my deep voice/illness but yes it is, it's closing at the end of this year though. I know nothing about clinical placements, but isn't it odd that none of them have been at UCH? Or do you rotate around the Free, Whit and UCH each year of clinics?

    I've done one year of clinics - you spend your time at 2 of the three main sites.
    I did RF and Whit
