Despite the best intentions of the professors, tutors and medical faculty, somehow medical school just doesn't prepare you to be a doctor. Over the years many of us have compiled a list of tips, shortcuts, cheat-sheets, summary tables, or whatever you call it to speed us along the way. While most of it is on the 'net nowadays (Dr Google anyone? ;-) it's sometimes just nice to have a little piece of paper you can whip out from your pocket faster than the COW can turn on. :-) |
Unfortunately, since it has been many many (more than 15!) years since he graduated, most
of these, especially the fine details are hopelessly out of date (and quite likely inaccurate!). While the general principles might still hold true, it is best you check with your immediate seniors, tutors, and of course the official sources.
If you have any contributions (no matter how small), suggestions (no matter how stupid), or find
any mistakes (no matter how minor), just drop me a note by clicking
here!! It's fast, easy, and you'll be helping zillions of housemen and residents who may even worship
the ground you walk on forever and call you guru! (And if you believe that, you've obviously done one call too many :-)
