We're being told off! Back to english then! smiling face


  #13

okly dokly then back to engl.

I'm from Athens, but I've been in patra since sep97 and hopefully i'll be graduating this july.

btw, just in case, (even though I am not really thinking about specialization in the UK) I might need you to give me some info about how the system works over there in due time.

And if you have any material of medical interest (usmle or other) that you would like to exchange we can arrange that.

Ta Ta for now.


  #14

No problem...I'll do my very best to answer anything in relation to the english system. I'm only just starting to gather books and stuff for the usmle exams...the good thing is that the library here is pretty well stocked up but I'm still going to buy some books of my own. Let me know what kind of material you might need. Have you started studying? I guess that your finals would be taking up most of your spare time at present...


  #15

before you buy anything, check with me. i have material on dvds and some books that I have found at our library over her, which even though old (one illustrated physiology from '91) are absolutely amazing learning tools parhaps you'd like to make photocopies. anyhow keep in touch.

Ok Guys I am already here.
Think the situation extremely carefully before making the decision (but I encourage everyone to do so; clinical education, working conditions at Greek hospitals suuckks. Try and get into a program that supports an H1, even if the J1 will mean lower taxes due to tax treaties.
If u want to contact me .. drop a line at ICQ (chrisarg)

Graduating in July, doing step 2 first
Good lack to everyone

If you start in the UK, do you think you ll have the time to study for the USMLE?
I think that working as an SHO and studying (let’s say) biochem and micro for step 1 might prove to be quite difficult. I am not sure if even step 2 will be easy to handle. The knowledge you need for these exams is quite different from the knowledge you need in order to handle patients. Even as a student, when I try to get involved in my patients management and really comprehend their situation and their treatment , I find that I need to focus on doses , infusion rates , drug toxicity , treatment response monitoring, mechanical ventilation. I use stuff like Current medical diagnosis and treatment to look these things up and this information is not very helpful in answering step 2 questions (for that, you mainly need review books and the explanation section of question books which contain more high yield information for a wide variety of conditions). Moreover if you are looking at a couple of years in the UK, your employers might expect you to pass some UK exams (like MRCP , at least part 1) at some point . People tell me that if you don’t at least try out for these exams after 1 or 2 years, you might find getting jobs increasingly difficult and improving you position (getting a better paid job with more responsibility) virtually impossible. Apparently they begin to doubt either your ability to pass the test or your commitment to a career and a contribution in the UK. I am not at all certain that studying for the USMLEs and studying fir the MRCPs are compatible.
Let me know what you think because I have been considering this plan of yours myself but I am afraid that UK employment might compromise our USMLE effort

Hi guys...from my experience of being a student in England (I'm doing my clinical rotations at the moment) I think that it would be fairly difficult to work here as an SHO and at the same time try and study for both the USMLE and the membership exams (MRCP, MRCS or whatever your choice of specialty is) although some people try to do it. I'm not sure how good an idea coming and working here is if you are only seeing it as a kind of "bridge" on your way to America. I mean, the system here is completely different and as I'm sure you know any time spent working here would not be recognised in America where you would still have to start from the beginning as an intern even if you were a consultant in the UK!!! It's mad so think carefully what you want to do and why do you want to do it...all the best!
