The medical school and its pupils are decked in Christmas attire. There are trees, jumpers and reindeer headbands and the atmosphere has been mixed between exhaustion and excitement about the soon to be festive season… and now its here! The Christmas Holidays! It’s hard to believe that I have completed 40% of year 1 at… Continue reading Med School Diaries | Made it to Christmas!
It’s been another busy week of med school. It seems like they are intent on cramming as much into the final few weeks of term as possible. Last week was a packed week of community placements and hospital inductions which when combined with being massively unwell was not a week I’ve enjoyed. My community placement… Continue reading Med School Diaries | In sickness and In health
Another week down and I am entering the final countdown to Christmas. It’s amazing how your body can tell there is a break coming up and how it seems to start failing and begging for a rest. I am suffering currently from a massive cold, I can only blame myself as it is most likely… Continue reading Med School Diaries | Community placement and it’s good to go home
I can't believe we are only a month away from the Christmas break! Time is flying and with another week of lecture heavy content having just gone it is hard to find the time to get any revision done. This week has been a busy one, yet i am fortunate enough to have been extremely… Continue reading Med School Diaries: Block 2, Week 2
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
It’s hard to believe that I am a fifth of the way though my first year of medical school. The amount of work and effort in order to stay afloat has been a real shock, but the motivation to succeed is the real reason we get through it. The week itself has been fairly reduced… Continue reading Med School Diaries | 1 Block down, 4 to go…
Week five has been so busy. It’s been the countdown to the end of the block, and the exam that follows it, and a week full of different experiences to the lecture theatres I have been in for days on end. When you add in the dog that came to visit, its been an intense… Continue reading Med School Diaries: Five weeks in…
The last week of med school was hard, and not in the way i expected it to be. I was expecting the week to be a busy mess of balancing uni lectures with finally getting grip on the block 1 revision. Unfortunately, last week turned into a mess of emotions and the realisation that i… Continue reading Med School Week 4: Sometimes you just need a cuddle.
I can't believe week three is finally over. It feels like i have been there for months. This feeling is probably due to the amount of information being crammed into my brain in such a short space of time. I have to say i am finally setting in and getting to grips with the day… Continue reading Medical School Week 3…. i think
My second week of medical school is now complete! A heavy week of lectures and information overload, it’s been nice to take the weekend to catch up on work without any more piling up on the to do pile. Fridays as always are definitely an adventure; the early morning 8am lecture is definitely not the… Continue reading Medical School: Week Two
