    Of course it is, dear :rolleyes:

    Let's not have any form of public health in this country and see just how quickly doctors become nothing more than asprin prescribing chimps, depressed at the lack of resources, while people drop dead of more complex conditions, because a lack of health prevention has lead to a boom in what should be easily treatable conditions, but are not as we can't afford to treat so many of them!

    Don't tell me... ...you hate psychosocial too, and are going to be a surgeon?

    I quite like public health it is the sort of thing that my dad does so I think i was indoctrinated at a younge age, most of my friends hate it tho and think I am weird because i don't hate it. On the topic of exams had my anatomy viva on friday does everyone have to do them because I really hate them my mind always goes blank

    Surgeon? hell no! And psychosocial - we call it behavioural sciences - one of the best modules we do! I did psychology Alevel though and really loved it so I kind of had a head start. Our PH really is a waste of time - we learnt about all the different species of mosquito last year! Our module co-ordinator is THE most monotonous person on this planet - so actually our public health is a waste of time and effort! There are plenty more important modules to be spending my xmas hol doing!

    I found social medicine a bit pointless to be honest :p: Even though I was good at sociology, I missed quite a few lectures and did about a days revision before the exam, most of it (at least at bristol) is common sense and knowing how to reference papers. Ethics was interesting though, I admit.

    I was talking to my friend yesterday and we realised that neither of us new, I was just wondering if other med schools have a 80% attendance rule to pass and whether they take registers or not. Would be interested to find out.

    Not really. They sometimes take a register for microanatomy and the odd practical, and specical off site sessions such as the patient simulator, but nothing is done with the 'data'. Aparently if you fail a year and didn't show up to these sessions then they do not go as 'easy' on you as they do if you've made the effort to attend everything.

    We do have to attend all PBL sessions and clincial placements though - not doing so or not having a doctors note if you do gets you a serious ass kicking.

    We do for practicals (and they have a sign up sheet, usually at least halfway through so you can't just sign in and leave!) But nobody gives a damn about lectures, though most people still attend most of them. I'm not sure what the clinical school rules are like.

    Oh and patient visits etc all have to be signed off or else...

    Don't know about the 80% bit, but Durham does take a register randomly (well, mostly random - for histology they took a register every lecture ).

    Mine was bad as well at Uni and I hated it, even though I knew it was important. Now I see it can be a way out of having to work weekends, nightshifts or holidays.

    You need to have AAB in your A2s and at least a C grade at AS level (or those predictions) when you apply.

    Yup - plus an independent AS at C grade - i.e. not one that you've carried on to A2.
