medical ethical dilemma
My teacher has given me this question: You are a GP and you have just found out that one of the doctors is giving preferential treatment to white patients. How will you approach this situation?? I have no idea to how to even begin answering this question, its for medical school interview practice that I'll have on Monday. Any tips will be greatly appreciated. (Source: New Media Medicine)

No Work Experience/Shadowing/Volunteering for 2015 entry! Help!
Hi people! I haven't done any work experience yet for the 2015 entry into medicine. I am still working on it but I am really worried that it won't be enough by the time I'll be applying. I have applied for volunteering in a charity shop and the process might take one or two weeks but that's all I've got now. I have tried GP shadowing but no one replies! So if anyone's living in Sunderland/Newcastle area, can you please help me find work experience/shadowing/volunteering places. Also, I was wondering if I could volunteer at a daycare/nursery as it's in a care environment. Thanks in advance to anyone who's willing to help me...

Selling new GAMSAT GradMed + practice questions
I'm selling my GAMSAT material that I used just over a year ago. I scored a 70 on the exam (top ~5%). I did no studying until the last two weeks, when I attended the (very expensive) GradMed GAMSAT course. The notes are brilliant because the tutors on GradMed sit GAMSAT every year. However, I would much rather have just bought them and learnt them in my own time, than going to the course, as the lecturers basically read straight from the notes and it cost a lot of money. There are excellent resources for each of the three sections included and many practice questions and essay samples, all of which are in perfect conditio...
