    We had essay questions in our anatomy and physiology class exams and I really don't mind them, just not keen on actual essays.
    Gave up on the referencing so its all quite shoddily done. Now what the hell do you put in a summary? I'll figure something out, only have about 50 words to play with anyway so we'll see.

    dissection day today, we are doing the body wall, so thoracic and abdominal, looking at all the muscle layers and, the ribs, the pleural membrane, that sort of thing, except we finished really quickly so we opened the chest cavity and took out the heart, our lil westies (we called her wylie) accidentally had her jugular severed a little bit. And she oozed everywhere, was like a scene out of a horror movie! then we opened up the abdominal cavity and had a wee poke around in there too! was actually really interesting, identifying all the organs and practicing surgical approaches. yey!

    You lucky biyatch.

    So do you think you're more of a 'slicer' or a 'consultations' kind of vet?

    O rly? You'll pass, chicka. Didn't you ace an anatomy exam at some point in the year?


    I don't really care much about meeting people, saying the same things again and again about deworming, and getting rid of fleas, and about dental hygeine etc, I want to be the vet the practice keeps in a lair who does all the surgeries =p

    Bex aces pretty much every exam!!! (we'll forget about physiology lol)

    Saw that the other murano street lot who i get lifts with were finished really early on in the afternoon because the car was back when I came back from picking mum up. Hope I didnt miss too much and could i maybe borrow your vertebral collumn notes? Do a swap and you can have my abdominal wall ones.

    Quiet week next week with only a couple of hours of lectures. Have a feeling that they're trying to give us a hint so we'll revise. Week after that class exams and then lambing!

    Yeah tell me about it. At least anatomy is nice and exact. Physiology and biomolec are just hard, but animal husbandry is soo wishy washy, don't know what you're meant to be learning, all very bitty and in so many cases just seems to be somebody else's opinion.
    Bleh
    *hides again and pretends to study biomolec*

    I was going to start work today... got my notes out and everything and started writing them up... then realised I was doing neuroanatomy and we have no anatomy exam in 2 weeks :redface: oops. Meedless to say have yet to start anything else

    hehe woopsies.
    Exam next week! arghhhhh
    No biomolec though, so thats good. But to compensate anatomy is giant and ridiculous, plus fish, amphibian, reptile anatomy and histology too yayyyy.....
    Physiology is super hard too. Male and female reproduction. I mean, it would be vaguely understandable if it was the same for all species.

    To summarize, revision is killing me.

    I'm sooo happy we dont have pbl, it would annoy the hell out of me. One of my flatmates is doing medicine and he's always going on about how rubbish it is.
    I am a big fan of the get bored senseless in lectures and regurgitate everything for the exam approach to teaching

    ooh, yeah i think a medic told me about her Pbl once, it seemed completely irrelevant to what she was learning.
    Right... renal physiology... anyone fancy joining me?

    So is PBL the same as DSE (directed self education then)? Do any other vet schools do DSE?

    Im not sure about other vet schools but Notts have clinical relevance which is kind of similar to PBL, but its integrated in every module and is only a couple of hours a week. I like it cos its all relevant to what we're doing and you get to work through a case from presenting complaint, all the way through tests and examination to diagnosis and treatment! We have a vet facilitating so if we get really stuck they give us a nudge in the right direction. Its good cos it makes you feel like a real vet which makes the less interesting lectures seem a bit more bearable. We also have SDL (self directed learning) for a few hours each week which I assume is similar to DSE

    Did you have weird OHP brain guy? He made brain stuff soo hard... I only survived that because of my human physiology text books.
