    digitalis' suggestion is good. The wikipedia diagram is actually very good. It's colour coded so you can see clearly which roots contribute to which nerve. Alternatively, if you're comfortable *******ising it, a more simplified diagram may be of use.

    I think that's the point of it! You can very easily forget the full version, but that box diagram is a doddle to remember.

    I don't remember it. Other than it is squiggly.

    It combined my two pet hates of neurology and anatomy.

    I had to teach a first year anatomy session on Monday and they (read: we) were learning how to draw it from the anatomy demonstrator (very similar to the link Digitalis posted actually). Its one of those things you just forget unless you have a really good way of remembering it.

    Got a 2 week placement all the way in Doncaster next month :cry:
    Cheer up. Donny ain't bad. It's just far...maybe you're lucky and someone has a car in your group? The doctors in Donny are really keen to teach (and it's got the best hospital food of all the hospitals). In Phase 2 you'll realize the difference in the amount of teaching from the central hospital and peripheral hospitals. It is like night and day. Most of us were in a state of depression when we went from the peripheral hospital (e.g. Doncaster) to NGH or RHH.

    Ere Digi, just thought about how odd it is that we're both in our Final year and almost Doctors. Seems like an age ago when we were forum freshers.

    You feel like your ready? I feel like I've got lots to learn in the next 6 months.

    A little rheumy eyed at the tender age of 22. What can I say: it's been emotional.

    I'm ready to stop being a student but perhaps not as confident at being a doctor.

    Love Titanium, my tune of the moment, so I'll definitely give that a listen! :top:

    Lol you hero, that is very true indeed. It's actually very strange to see lots of forum members 'grow up', the forum SHOs like Helenia, Renal, Elles when they were clinical students and we were freshers!

    I just got repped for a post about Woody from 2010, where did he go?!

    Alesso remix smashes the standard release.

    Oh my dear god - having finally got round to applying to student finance - how the **** am I supposed to survive on £3263 - how are people actually living in 5th/6th year?!?!

    Can someone tell me their secret?
    Live rent free with your relatives. It's the only way I'm able to afford it and I need to save up for elective

    Thankyou i needed hugs!
    Im still puking my guts up though and im still trying to rank jobs at the same time - im up to number 20, im never going to get it all done at this rate. I might just get to 200 and give up

    I made my own model out of pipe cleaners. Making the model was surprisingly helpful. Think I got the idea from someone on here.
