I know. But actually doing stuff and being paid > standing at the back seeing nothing and not getting paid. Frankly, with my finances in their current state, anything that gets me paid is good!
ah yes, my friend did one of those whilst at cambridge. fun fun fun ey.

More of a slight issue of kidney duplication and an eGFR of 70...

Make it all a little stage 2 CKD... ideally eGFR should be above 100... On it's own eGFR isn't too much to worry about, but with definite kidney pathology it is... I just do not have any documentation for definite thanks to the inept record keeping of a certain Swansea hospital, so I have to jump through pointless hoops to satisfy the beaurcrats...

ah see i never quite understood this whole CKD malarky much either.

but just know on my path results it only flags up eGFR if <60.

Yeah with eGFR the margin for error is quite wide (low specificity for CKD - as patients with fully functional kidkeys can have varying degrees of normal GFR, not to mention the fact that it is only an estimated value), and anything down to around 60 could be normal.

Beyond that it has quite a good positive predicitive value, so that's why most systems only flag up results below 60 (and may go some way to explaining the lack of f/up for fluffy)

It's amazing the things you pick up despite despising a topic

I've been reading the Student BMA's feature on booze in medical schools (sorry, was bored), apart from the fact that medicine now seems to full of knobs, there was a solid TSR contribution, well done.

I 100% stand by my published opinion that it's those who don't drink that you have to watch.

Is it worth resubscribing to the BMA?

I don't want to lose £30 for a few articles I can read online anyway.

Do you think they're doing a good job of representing your interests?

standard rate's £387pa. But it builds up to that, I think you have to pay that 7 years after you've qualified. But it's a bit less in special circumstances, like if you teach.

I see the table of benefits now. I don't think it's worth resubbing, I hope it won't count against me if I want to sub in the future.

Woah.
I'll go dig out the information and have a look at the table, I think :ninja:

I don't really think I got much out of the membership this year, but I was wondering if that's because maybe I haven't been aware of and/or proactive enough in trying to find out about issues :dontknow:

I'd say it's worth it for the BMJ learning stuff, but not really much else (though it is nice to get some mail every now and then )

I'm so out of practise in general medicine (having done Palliative Care, Paeds, Obs & Gynae as my last 3 rotations). Had to cannulate someone today and was sooooo nervous! Then we had a supervision and I just felt really rusty doing all my examinations etc.

Our supervision group is also currently at war over when to have teaching. It's quite sad really...

I know the feeling before a/e I had micro (3mths), GP (1mth), Obs/Gynae (6wks, did a couple there, and one dramatic fail :p: ), and paeds (7wks, though did get to do 1 cannulation then)

They didn't really let us in Paeds, and I haven't had any opportunities in O&G yet. But I'm sure in 6th year when I'm on our epic long regional attachments I'll get plenty of practice :rolleyes:
