F2 doctor feeling optimistic about the future..
Something happened recently that has changed my outlook. I have written about it on my blog: So I’ve been thinking, lots. Most of my blog is endless ranting and whinging about how awful life is as a doctor, and it’s true, it can be pretty shit. But take the recent picture of the A+E doctor grieving for a 19 yr old patient that died, it went viral and everyone suddenly seemed to empathise and appreciate what we have to go through as doctors. Death becomes so normal for us, upset, stress, grief, these all become normal parts of our day and we let them consume us, but to the point that we don’t realise what’s happening t...

Best structure for essay section. Please help!
Hi, I am sitting the GAMSAT Ireland on Saturday so would really like to get some opinions quickly! I sat the GAMSAT in September and achieved 65 on the essay section, so not a bad score but would like to try and boost it this time. To practice I purchased the Griffiths Essay course and have written and submitted 10 essays with mostly good feedback. The problem is the Griffiths course recommends using a structure I have never used before.

Course syllabus for SGUL MBBS (Graduate entry)
Hi all :) I was wondering if anyone had a full copy of the graduate entry MBBS syllabus I could have a look at please. I have a young child and want to apply for the course once he is in school (in about 2 years time). I am fortunate enough to have family who are happy to look after him when I need any time of day, which other threads say will be invaluable! Even if the syllabus changes, I am hoping that having a good look through will help me prepare ahead, build up a reading list over the next few years, plus I want to be a bit nosey!
