    Post-grad collections are the best! No exam or anything like that - just a "So, you're still alive! Great! Any problems, come and see us. Next" kinda approach, although you do get good biscuits!

    Biscuits as well, and the graduate student teaching us gives us exams, has she no compassion!

    Nope - biscuit fever robs you of all compassion... A bit like the prisoner and prison guard experiment

    Golden Maverick - summer of year 2 is a bizaare twillight zone time period! :p:
    anyhow, if you feel stressed re. exams & want to talk feel free to PM me & we could email/meet for coffee or something. in my first year medsoc arranged a "talk to a survivor" scheme in the weeks before prelims which i found hugely reassuring!


    i've never been offered a tute biscuit, humph. although a friend having a coughing fit was offered port once because there was no water in the room. :rofl: & we do normally have wine at our 0th week meet up.


    am now in an extended essay frenzy... seems fairly exciting. where's the geek smilie?

    I hate feeling like a second year when i'm only a first year! Cardio-respiratory term which so far is very timetable heavy. Hope i've got what it takes. If i was a normal intelligent person i'd have a degree in less than 18 months :rolleyes: :p:

    I quite liked the cardio-respiritory term that we did this time last year, it was the abdomen which I didn't like as much in the first year!

    I *HATE* weekends, hate 'em worse than anything (including nights). It's just the exhaustion of that 12-day non-stop stretch. Having said that, I worked Xmas eve Saturday and it wasn't too bad. But have a horrible week coming up - am on call tomorrow (Monday) and Friday and the weekend, and then the following Thursday

    At least I'm in medicine now, which is much better than surgery...

    If you haven't applied to preclinical / clinical courses & don't fancy transferring to intercalate or for clinicals or anything then you shouldn't have any more career-ish interviews until jobs i suppose though.


    & feel i should share with the thread - i was very lucky & just got into my 1st choice clinical school without an interview. yay.

    Nah, this is only if you are silly like me and go to a silly university where they don't have enough clinical places for everyone. Most medical schools don't have that - although you will of course have job interviews etc before graduation!

    It went ok, I think. I got a bit tied up in one Ethics question (trying to explain the Doctrine of Double Effect) and could have spoken better about what my work experience had showed me about the difference between GP and hospital medicine, but I think it could have been much worse.

    And they didn't ask me the killer question either

    Edit: WELL DONE! to Elles and Steve (sbailey) for getting into Oxford Clinical School without interview! :party: :elefant: :marchmell

    On another subject, have just got back from a long day a question was on my mind so I thought that I would ask, when you learn about conditions/diseases etc do get really worried that you have them? It may be stupid but it seems to happen to me every term not in a really serious I am going to see a doctor because I am sure that I have it kind of way more of a silly little what if. We are currently studying reproduction so I being me thing I am going to be infertile when I am older . Ah well it doesn't bother me that much was just wondering whether it happend to other people too?
