    What? New model of coagulation? I don't think I ever got the old one in my head, and now there's a new one? I am definitely not coming back to medicine if they keep coming up with stuff I have to learn again...
    The old intrinsic/extrinsic pathway is basically lies. And memorising it serves little purpose anyway.

    As I understood it most of our course is gross simplification anyway. Well that is the impression I get when I talk to scientists looking at specific aspects of medicine.

    Nerves are really quite cool at the physics molecular level

    Its mostly the same, just initiation doesn't really occur via contact factors and factor 12, its mostly via Tissue Factor, with a positive feedback type activation of the factors of the old "intrinsic" pathway.
    Is that the cycle that's in diagrammatic form in Kumar and Clark? Cause that's how I learnt it and it really annoyed me when haematologists kept banging on about intrinsic/extrinsic :p:

    Whey reckon this ssc will be good, with the ENT guys and they've got this case report for me which they reckon is publishable and presentable.

    Does the ranking need to be done before finals? If so that sucks - I had the luxury of post finals-pre elective last minute ranking. Do you still get quite a gap between written an OSCE? Allocate some of it to your 'time off'..?

    Revise in a warm library/JCR/MCR w/ headphones?

    Jury service should be deferrable when you have pre-established travel plans - contact them & ask nicely... delegate letter writing/phonecalls to a supportive-non-medic-friend / family if possible!


    GOOD LUCK! Keep focussed on the awesome-ness that will be Elective-SSMs-Preparing-for-Practice-last-summer-in-Oxford & graduating.
    The Yorkshire bunch (me and fairy) need to rank the 500 by next wednesday!! Urgggggh

    No, haven't received anything like that which is a shame. Got 82. I honestly think I am just going to rank 100 jobs and click through the rest...if I don't get one of my top 100 jobs then it was never meant to happen!

    Is one of those histograms showing successful applicants scores in the Yorkshire deanary not available? They were last year.

    Mate, what I remember from first year wouldn't cover a single side of A4. Or A5 for that matter. Doesn't seem to have landed me in the lurch just yet!

    I'm really hating this pre-clin stuff again.

    It doesn't help its neurology and nobody seems to understand what the **** is going on and everything we're being taught seems to contradict everything.

    I agree! I'm absolutely hating med school right now, its just so much work getting thrown at us and I barely understand what we did a couple of weeks ago let alone this new stuff

    Oh really, that's good then . But from what I gather selection is purely on academic merit, so it's going to be tough. yep, you too!
    Yes, I think it is purely on academic merit for most the BScs. I just went for it and applied for Psychology today, so we'll see how that works out

    Exactly how I felt this time last year, was so good to be done with pre-clin stuff once and for all, so much more interesting this year and much more enjoyable.

    Yea its exactly whats in K&C, but every physiology text book iv looked at has it wrong, and only some state that it is wrong but easier to learn.

    What is this new pathway you speak of? I learnt the 'old' one so well in first year, and can probably still draw it from memory (just about) - change will not bode well for me. :dry:
    It what it in Kumar and Clark, its the cell-based model of coagulation, far better than the old version.

    Easier to learn.
