Earlier in the month I posted about the bloated BBC and was accused of being grumpy! Afraid this is a grumpy post as well.
Workshops are amazing, this is where patients with a particular condition volunteer to be examined by groups of medical students (usually about 3-7). This is overseen by a consultant or registrar who points out what we've missed.
Anyway, had one of these today and the turnout by medical students was poor. I know we have exams but its no excuse, people have given up there time for us and people cant even be bothered to turn up. On the brightside I was in a group of two, as opposed to five/six meaning we both got more attention and learnt more.
