Med School Diaries: Block 2, Week 1

I can’t believe the first week of block two has finished, it has honestly flown by. The amount of information thrown at you in the first week is intense; you feel overwhelmed and any confidence you have often disappears during this week and you spend the next four years to claw it back. I had… Continue reading Med School Diaries: Block 2, Week 1
