Was imagining once again what it would be like to be a fly on the wall during those Timetable Committee meetings…
John: Those 2nd year medstudents sure must be tired after all that writing…
Susie: Excellent. I think we should capatalize on that. When are they writing again?
John: Only two weeks after the clinical test. It’s the big end-of-module test. You know, the one that assesses everything they will ever be required to know about Respiratory Medicine as GPs.
Susie: They’ll probably need to study hard for that one?
Susie: So what do you propose we do?
John: Set compulsory afternoon group-work sessions…PATHOLOGY! Yes, pathology case-studies. But the really boring types with impossibly generic case patients that can be diagnosed within five minutes. Except that they shouldn’t be allowed to leave before the two hour mark. That ought to keep them busy.
