Day 51: Quick update

Today’s inane images of the day:

Monday morning, we were greeted with by this [the ball was brought in a while ago by a student who wanted to avoid a sore bum from sitting in the classroom seats for many hours at a time].

Dr. Bee asked us to trace our hand so that we could organize the many structures …  we seem to have some interesting bones/muscles in this one!

This will be a short update for the following reasons:

  1. We have some sort of graded assessment [case studies, TBLs] every day this week [with the exception of Friday]
  2. There is still a lot of new material being thrown at us
  3. We have our BFCP1 Final Exam on Monday morning followed by a PMH exam in the afternoon
  4. We have our Anatomy Upper Limb practical on Tuesday
  5. [According to the most recent, but sometimes unreliable schedule] we still have 2 more assessments next week [yes, following our draining 3 exams…]
I did also want to put in a plug for my dear friend who is participating in an endurance event and raising funds to help support blood cancer research through the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Consider donating to this great cause here [every dollar counts!].
And finally, today’s medical school fact of the day: There are a lot of microbes in our world. Well, okay how’s this: Opportunistic and nosocomial infections caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa are commonly associated with cystic fibrosis and burn patients. – From Dr. Harriott’s lecture slides
