Back to the Future

Picture from firsttutors.com
 
Kay has left home again after the summer break to start her fourth year at university. Those who have been following this blog for some time will know that she is studying medicine.... a five year course in all. However, medical and dental students have the option to intercalate and take a year out. This is summed up more here (although she does not go to Bristol university and different universities that offer intercalation do so at different stages of the medical degree. Where she is, they do it between year 3 and year 4.) It is basically a year out of medicine to do the final year of a medically-related science degree and get a BSc degree at the end of that 12 months, the idea being to enhance her career prospects in the future. She's quite looking forward to the opportunity to mix more with non-medics and occasionally work in a lab for a change. This time next year, with hopefully a published dissertation and the BSc under her belt, she can continue with her fourth and fifth years of medicine. It's still a long haul ahead, but we're hanging in there.

Meanwhile, the house seems awfully quiet again.........

Where does the time go... one thing, I know Greg would (is) incredibly proud of her.

Last weekend with our son at home starting now, his lovely girlfriend arrived from Wales as well yesterday so suddenly it was very busy in the bathroom last night! However for some reason there isn't a queue at 6am when I get up...

Next week I'll feel lonely again no doubt and out numbered in the house... no more superbikes at 7pm overiding the One Show vote!

The fastest, most painfull blood tests I have ever had were in a department staffed entirely by students on their intercalate - they were brilliant - they ran it like a deli with a take a number, fast efficient and good at it - loving those students :)

Good luck to Kay - I bet it's very quiet. Turn the radio up and invite some friends round!
