    I personally had the pleasure of having an afternoon every four weeks of my time spent on this fascinating subject...

    In celebration of this... I thought I should just educate some of the pre-freshers about some of incredible things we learn at medical school...

    1) Eat your greens

    2) Wash your face

    3) Clean your teeth

    4) Comb your hair

    And lastly...

    5) Health promotion at school

    I know it's random... but anything is got to be better than reading threads discussing whether people are 'crazy' (or attention seeking) for doing 7 A levels or debating how many A stars you need to do medicine...etc. you know what i mean...

    so anywayz... was just wondering why do we have to be taught so much of the whole 'caring', 'compassionate' doctor malaky during pre-clinicals... could understand doing some of it during clinicals because you see people a lot more... but it seems crazy to do an entire day every week on 'personal development' in the first two years - when you hardly see patients... it drives me crazy...!
