Wow. This one’s a real page-turner! We have again provided you a feast of articles to get your teeth into. I know it’s late for you 2nd years but Trung and James have given you the low-down on SSCs to hopefully clear some things up (NB. Surgo is not responsible for any poor SSC choices). Following this, Dr Catriona Bamford (an actual, legit doctor) has imparted her wisdom on how to survive FY1. If you are a believer, then Michaela has interpreted the heavens for you with her horoscopes; but this has nothing on her scathing attack on Western societies’ handling of the Ebola crisis (well worth a read). Also, Dan has enlightened us with his hard-fought lessons on how to survive the MedChir queue. There are details on medic societies, a selection of pics from nights out and the poems from “Ode to Freshers Week” for your viewing pleasure! And to round it all off… Jamie tries to sell us an iPad app. Enjoy!
