At last, back into anatomy lectures. This time we were looking at the lymphatic system, the importance of it and how its course changes depending on the body region. This was a good example of how the Year 2 lectures build on the Year 1 knowledge, and really require a bit more time input to write up properly - to place the new information in context you have (or at least I am having to) go over and revisit the first year lectures.
We also had an excellent talk from an interventional radiologist in the morning about vascular imaging - one of those really great sessions that sells the specialty of interest very well. There were also talks on working in the NHS, a welcome to Phase II from the Phase Lead, and we had our first CBL sessions with our new groups in the afternoon.
The topic of choice was cardiac arrythmias and atrial fibrillation - a great chance to revise ECGs as a group and brainstorm everything we could remember about cardiac electrophysiology. To any future Warwick students - always remember that CBL is a chance to structure your learning and revise WHAT IS NORMAL before you go diving after the pathology. The core understanding of the topic is much more important than nailing the diagnosis in 5 minutes.
