Back for another one. This week… quality not quantity. This week’s blog is short but punchy - a must have study/life-hack to add to your repertoire. And yes, it relates in some way to frogs 🐸.
And for the MedEd Vault, an addition that will 💯 be grateful for at some point.
In other news, your guys launched on TikTok a couple of days ago🤙. Whats crazy though, is that I’ve actually gone viral on my first video. The power of social media baffles me - who’d have thought that my first 60 second video about finding a broken toothbrush in a patients bladder (yep you’re reading that right) would get me 250,000 views and 1,500 followers in about 48 hours!?

🔓 The MedEd Vault: High-yield MedEd resources you may never knew existed.
🔦This week’s resource in the spotlight is: Mind the Bleep
🔗Access here: https://www.mindthebleep.com
As we’re in mid July right now, let’s be honest, you’re pretty clued up on which content you’re using to revise. But here’s one everyone should know, especially those who will be starting F1 in a few weeks time.
A life-saver for high-yield F1 knowledge, its easily accessible from your phone and will equip you with knowledge to put into practice fast
A really useful resource for any clinical year medical student, covering emergencies and general ward skills
Covers careers, finance, employment and locum advice - the stuff that’ll matter more to you when med school finishes
Honestly can’t find any negatives with this website. Its fresh, easy to use, easy to navigate and has great content. A flagship for F1 survival resources - thanks Akash Doshi et al.
Thats all for now. See you in 8 frog weeks time*
*A week for humans is roughly equivalent to 8 weeks for a frog**
**Note that the literature on time perspectives for frogs is very, very limited
