    February seems to be the time when everything is nearing a close when it comes to interviews and rejections. Tbh, I'll be glad when this waiting game ends.

    And I've got same exams as you, on same days too. Good luck!

    I don't know whether to laugh at the first on or not, but I think I will. :laugh:
    I remember being told about the guy with the skull face! - I never searched it at the time, but that is awful :eek:

    My favourite Youtube remix: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfeyUGZt8nk

    And yes, I waste way too much time on Youtube - Which is quite bad considering I have 2 exams this week
    Haha love it!

    Some people waste too much time on TSR

    Lol I only pass on the little snippets I get from being an insider. I dunno, being at med school has put me off being a doctor. Might just get my degree and do something else.... fortune cookie writing or weaving... something a little less stressful. Haha.
    Could you give a brief summary on what they teach BM6 students in their first year? (Sorry if this has been asked before)

    Out of curiousity, is it the stress alone that has turned you off medicine, or something more?

    E: Whats the neg for >_> I feel like drawing all comments from this forum because its just getting ridiculous. I'm not saying anything thats offensive nor am I making a point that someone might disagree with.

    Eeerrm. It's a lot of things. Competitiveness, smugness lol, stress, hours, pay (not really amazing for the work/responsibility), politics, learning bumps on bones for the sake of it, people always (always) ****ging off doctors/the NHS/healthcare.

    I think I'm too... floofy....I don't like confrontation and don't have a thick enough skin. I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet. We'll see!


    Brief summery -

    Human Structure & Function I
    This will enable you to understand key physiological, anatomical & biochemical concepts and principles that you can apply in problem based scenarios.
    This will prepare you to successfully undertake the early years of the BM programme. You will specifically study; the structure and function of biological macromolecules and the principles of metabolism; principles of homeostasis & homeostatic imbalance, particularly as applied to the cardiovascular system; the structure & function of cells & tissues; basic anatomy; nutrition & the digestive system; principles of enzymology and energetics; principles of medical microbiology and immunology.

    Professional Practice I
    This will enable you to understand and experience the practice of medicine through work placements and to help you evaluate & reflect on these experiences and to apply theory to practice.
    The unit is designed around 3 projects; The roles of health care professionals; Communication in health care: The media and medicine. You will be introduced to aspects of health sociology and psychology as applied to medicine and also develop your skills in numeracy, statistics, IT and information retrieval.

    Human Structure & Function II
    This unit will enable you to build on your learning in HSFI as it is in a similar format with similar modes of assessment. Again you will be provided with an understanding of essential anatomical, physiological & biochemical concepts that you can apply to problem based scenarios.
    The topics include the structure and function of the nervous system, muscle, the renal system & the endocrine system. Aspects of imbalance in these systems will also be considered. You will also explore the principles and applications to the human body of acid base balance, pH, dissociation constants, buffers and redox reactions. Also covered is cell division, the cell cycle, growth and the stages of human development. Finally you will explore the principles of genetics and some of its applications.

    Professional Practice II
    This unit will enable you to build on your learning in PPI as it is constructed in a similar format. As in PPI you will produce a portfolio of your placement experiences and project work.
    In particular this unit will develop your understanding of the organization of health care ( primarily in the UK), the different factors that influence health and illness and ethical issues in medicine. You will further develop your understanding of IT, information retrieval and basic statistics and their application in health care.



    How's that?
