Last TMA Results and Revision/ist Time??

TMA 06???

I completely forget what number we're on. But basically, it went OK. I wanted to properly ace it, but got a decent Pass 2. So put nicely, there's not a cat in hell's chance of me getting a decent exam mark here. I'm hoping for a pass, and worrying myself stupid about the exam.


Revision

We're supposed to be revising in themes, which is great because at least that gives us somewhere to go with it. So far I have these themes in mind:

Women
Colonial medicine
Public health
Hospitals
Mental health
Patient/Practitioner relationships
Eugenics
Education of health professionals
Changing bodies
Galenism

NIGHTMARE.

I'll be making revision posters/sheets for the ones I decide to focus on, I'm happy to share any of these. I have been trying to revise 2 hours a day. I find that any more than that and I am knackered. Public health is an absolute nightmare, it goes on and on in every chapter without let up or end. GAH.


On the plus side

I think that, like A200, I have finally 'got' the course. My whole idea of it is that medicine has moved on from being an art to a science, from 1500 - 1930. However, traditionalist views of that shift were triumphalistic, and now we look at it all as advancement and progression because of outside economic, political, social and religious factors.

And I think that is the point. If that's been obvious all along then fine, but it's only just come to me. And if it's wrong then see you for the re-sit. :)

Good luck everyone.
