    He does that lecture once a year.

    It's about being savvy about drug companies.

    Doesn't come up in the exams :p:
    Is it for a particular year, or just anyone?

    Essentially, yeah.

    We just had a jolly around the clinical skills centre, 'learning' to do chest examinations and suchlike. It was amazingly pointless, and they dragged it out from 9 'til 5.

    doing MILE atm. Where you get assignment 9am thursday, hand it in 9am friday. its hellish. It wouldn't be so bad but the word limit is 500 so you have to ****ing condense, I have about three tables which I'll probably get marked down for, and critique all references, and then IF THIS WASNT ENOUGH you can't print it and hand it in, oh no! you have to write it out in a booklet! WHY is anyones guess! And yes that means all diagrams hand drawn! literally been working since 9:30ish with 1 hr for lunch, just got home, still got loads to do, probably at least 3-4 hours worth (in writing it out, daigrams etc) but having a break now!

    though it's about the ear, I have an ENT appt next week about my hearing so it's quite useful, on balance not hearing but yeah still. handy.

    ps. 4 cans of coke so far today.

    I have no idea what the point is either. So I just checked. Apparently MILE is designed to evaluate how well I can:

    formulate relevant questions in relation to a particular problem
    use avaliable resources in a systematic and sensible fashion under the given constraints
    give an appraisal of these resources
    interpret and synthesise the information gained in relation to the questions set
    reflect on any unresolved issues

    it's not supposed to take 24 hours you're given 24 hours so people who need to go home don't have to travel in twice as some people live a way out.
    however I can't see how it can be done in less than around 10 hours and thats if you're seriously speedy, it's just not possible, especially if handwriting it. most people are working at the same pace as me.

    Lesson learnt. Never miss sportsnight for anything PDS related :p:

    I just get a nice lie-in on thursdays. It'd be rude NOT to go to sportsnight. It's quite bad that one of my biggest achievements of this year is my 100% sportsnight attendance record. Something to say when I run for captain at the AGM.

    I don't have PDS. I'm technically classed as a part-time student and in order to do that they had to cut down my hours and they snipped out SSCs and PDS to do so.
