Funding Post-Grad Medical School

Thread Starter Funding Post-Grad Medical School Follow 3 hours ago 3h ago First question: why was a science degree cheaper than medicine? Was it because it was at your local uni? Some sources/considerations (inevitably there will be some patronising here): 1) Get cheaper accommodation. Its amazing how many people complain they can't afford the accommodation, and dig a little deeper its because they are insisting on having an en-suite. But even aside from that, make sure you've dug around for the cheapest, dirtiest place going. Plenty of private sector shared student houses are cheaper than student halls. 2) Live dirt cheaply in other aspects of your life. Cooking in batches, shopping in Aldi, never buying clothes etc. We had a little community who raided the supermarket bins for out of date food when I was at uni - you can get some good stuff, honestly! 3) Get a part time job e.g. uni library/bars, HCAing etc. Seems you already do that though. 4) Work in the holidays. In the run up to Christmas there is generally loads of work - I earned £2k in 2 weeks working nights at the post office in my Christmas holidays. You have that summer job - could ...

Publication date: Available online 18 July 2019Source: Journal of Clinical NeuroscienceAuthor(s): Elena Segal, Aharon Schif, Imad Kasis, Sarit RavidAbstractWe aimed to identify the most common causes of acute ataxia in children in the era of widespread varicella vaccination and the yield of commonly used diagnostic work-up. This retrospective study reviewed the medical records of children who presented with ataxia of less than 72 h duration, over the last 12 years. Associated signs and symptoms, laboratory, EEG and neuroimaging studies, final diagnosis and clinical findings at discharge and during follow-up were studie...

CONCLUSIONS Pneumococcal meningitis is probably underdiagnosed and underreported in S ão Paulo. Differentiated rates of pneumococcal meningitis diagnosis and reporting in each microregion, according to the São Paulo Index of Social Responsibility, might explain our results.

After the initial identification of the H1N1 pandemic influenza strain in Mexico in April 2009 and its subsequent global spread, several monovalent influenza vaccines were developed as part of the pandemic response. Three of these vaccines, Pandemrix, Arepanrix and Focetria were adjuvanted. One of these, the AS03-adjuvanted Pandemrix vaccine, was primarily used in Europe. Following widespread Pandemrix vaccine administration in Scandinavia, an increased risk of narcolepsy was noted in observational studies. Subsequently, this increased risk was also reported in other European countries as well. In contrast, studies from Ca...

Authors: Wen Y, Zhu Y, Gong Z, Shu M, Wan C Abstract Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) as a causative organism of empyema thoracis is rare, especially in children. An 8-year-old boy with tuberculous empyema and no history of contact with tuberculosis presented with minimal symptoms other than mild deformity of the chest wall. He had been vaccinated with bacillus Calmette-Guérin. A chest CT scan demonstrated intrathoracic lymphadenopathy, thickened and calcified pleural rind and rib thickening adjacent to the empyema. The diagnosis was confirmed by post-operative histopathological examination, positive acid-fa...

Members of the ‘Mycoplasma mycoides cluster’ are important animal pathogens causing diseases including contagious bovine pleuropneumonia and contagious caprine pleuropneumonia, which are of utmost importance in Africa or Asia. Even if all existing vaccines have shortcomings, vaccination of herds is still considered the best way to fight mycoplasma diseases, especially with the recent and dramatic increase of antimicrobial resistance observed in many mycoplasma species. A new generation of vaccines will benefit from a better understanding of the pathogenesis of mycoplasmas, which is very patchy up to now. In par...

The surveillance of host body tissues by immune cells is central for mediating their defense function. In vivo imaging technologies have been used to quantitatively characterize target cell scanning and migration of lymphocytes within lymph nodes (LNs). The translation of these quantitative insights into a predictive understanding of immune system functioning in response to various perturbations critically depends on computational tools linking the individual immune cell properties with the emergent behavior of the immune system. By choosing Newtonian second law for the governing equations, we developed a broadly applicabl...

This study included 180 prisoners from the Buca F-Type Closed Prison, and 180 prisoners from the Foça Open Prison in Turkey. After the training seminars, serum levels of HBsAg, anti HBs, anti HBc total and anti HCV in the prisoners were assessed using the MICROELISA method. FINDINGS: All the prisoners were male. The mean age was 40(21-73) years. According to the results of 360 prisoners from both prisons, 17 (4.7 percent) prisoners were HBsAg positive and were diagnosed as HBV. Isolated anti HBs was positive in 33 (9.1 percent) prisoners who had been previously vaccinated. In 25 (6.9 percent) prisoners isolated...

Temperature controlled expression of this gene caused tunnels and holes in the cell wall of E. coli O2:K1 bacterium, leading to loss of cytoplasmic contents. Formation of E. coli O2:K1 ghost was confirmed by scanning electron microscopy and determination of colony forming units. To evaluate t...
