And in a more appropriate way of reorganising something, that means to start from the ground up again; most of the posts were horrendous, trite wafflings of an over stressed, naive, student. Some of them were useful, and so remain. Things that weren't wholly relevant to a running commentary on the state of play in medical education in this country have been deleted, in a vague attempt to get back to some sort of message.
The three posts that remain, post-purge, are useful as a reminder for those that follow after. A dutuful reader would remember that the OSCEs usually change some things around, but in the early clinical years - at least - they aren't going to throw in the huge surprise. Patients are stable, with clear signs. Actors are simply that - and have a script. Just jump through the hoops and you should be set.
Whether or not this becomes a Dr Rant-esque site, or attempts to bridge the divide between the vehement and the reasoned, remains to be seen. Given the way my medical school - as an entity - continues to be one of the more poorly organised groups of professionals, it is only a matter of time, one feels, before this site is overtaken by the vitriolic and the desperate.
Having said all of that, it must countered by the fact that this is an opportunity to refresh one's outlook on the future.
