Monday We had another Monday anatomy session today which I discovered were a new addition for our year and I am happy that they are there. It serves brilliantly to go over things without the pressure the surgical training centre so I get a lot from the sessions. I also managed to get through most … Continue reading Block 1 Week 4 (#5)
