I'm happy to have survived another exam. We're on the verge of starting a bunch of new courses here, and one of the highlights is a Team-Based Learning Activity called, "Grand Rounds". We have been broken up into groups of 4 and are receiving information about the same case. We will be working on the case and answering the questions that have been asked of us, while researching on our own and trying to figure out what might be the right course of action. In November, we will all sit in an auditorium in our groups in front of a panel of doctors, while our names are randomly chosen to answer questions in front of the panel. This not what you might typically expect of "grand rounds" in a medical setting, but I'm glad that we're getting the chance to work with our peers on a case.
Tips I've received for anatomy:
1.) Don't touch ANYTHING in lab without gloves. Saran wrap your computers or put them in ziploc bags.
2.) Bring a plastic bag to keep your lab scrubs outside your locker... so none of your other belongings get infused with the embalming odor. If you take public transport home after lab, pretend that "weird smell" that your neighbors have noticed, isn't you.
3.) Expect to throw your shoes out
4.) Put scented lotion on before you put a pair of gloves on, then put soap on the outside of the gloves and put another pair of gloves on.
