This block has started strangely. There are a 2 cohorts doing Paeds at the same time. This translates as 45 of us in one hospital (of 12 wards) and thus cases are under extreme pressure at the moment, with about 5 med students on each ward looking for suitable cases. Hopefully this will calm down over the next few days else it will be near impossible. The teaching programme however seems more robust and has a fair ammount of tutorials, teaching ssessions and clinics, as well as soem free time. This makes it much ncier than most hospitals.
