Oh it’s Spring? (Currently Stuck Inside Revising)

Oh it’s Spring? (Currently Stuck Inside Revising)

Apparently I was looking worse for wear so my housemate (who is not sitting finals this year) felt that I needed cheering up in the form of some neatly placed hair lights. In the words of a very inspiring fish- “Just Keep Swimming” Till Next Time (hopefully on time depending on level of head implosion) […]

App-ily iRevising for Finals

App-ily iRevising for Finals

There’s the running joke with my housemates that my phone is never more than a metre away from me (unless I loose it of course and then after calling it tends to be in my back pocket). However when it comes to revision sometimes that wonderful little black device can be a potential procrastinators minefield. […]

It’s Not Like in the Movies- My 1st Cardiac Arrest Call

BANG. Start Chest Compression’s. Wires. People Charge in. Pads on. ZAP. “WE’RE LOOSING HIM DOCTOR. Thump Chest with Mighty Fist- I’ll stop there because it’s not like that at all but you could be forgiven for thinking otherwise we’ve all seen an episode of ER or Holby City or in Hollywood films where someone close […]

Transferable Practical Skills… Finding New Ways to Learn!

Transferable Practical Skills… Finding New Ways to Learn!

You find when you become a medical student that the lines between medicine and other interests begins to blur. But then it’s always handy when one geeky hobby can help you grasp the basics to carry out a practical medical procedure! Guess who won the suturing competition in my outblock group?

In my best Game of Thrones Impression “Finals are Coming”

Once all the left over turkeys been eaten and New years Eve Champers consumed there’s probably only one thing on a students mind right now… EXAMS. The best way to tackle exams is to have a good old fashioned battle plan! Medicine in particular one of those subjects which is ‘life-long learning’ once I’ve graduated there […]

Merry Christmas to all those Lovely People at Work Today!

“What are you doing working (a.k.a revising)? IT’S CHRISTMAS!” You, as is my littlest sibling, are probably wondering why on earth I am online on CHRISTMAS DAY! Well I’d just like to put a little post out wishing a Merry Christmas to all those hardworking lovely people who are in the Hospitals today working! Unfortunately […]

Situational Judgement Test- Trusting your Gut Instincts

Situational Judgement Test- Trusting your Gut Instincts

They say you can’t revise for it and yet it will comprise 50% of my score for applying to foundation schools and so the panic sets in. The questions outline a scenario that I may well be placed in as an FY1/FY2. There are 2 types of questions one where I have to choose the […]

So where are you ‘From From’?

So where are you ‘From From’?

If you’re black, brown, talk with an accent, have an unusual name or anywhere inbetween you will probably have heard the ‘No I meant From From’ before (especially when you answered the first question with ‘I’m from Leicester’). Not that I mind, I mean the afro’s a pretty big give away, but in my case there really isn’t a simple answer… […]

When We Were Young- Returning to Secondary School as a Medical Student!

When We Were Young- Returning to Secondary School as a Medical Student!

Be organised, I learnt that at Secondary School, I  learnt pretty early on that carrying all of my workbooks in my bag was only going to give me a backache and really I should prepare the bag the night before instead of playing on Habbohotel or Spyro the Dragon or MSN messaging my mates… plus […]
