It's about the time of year when a new batch of medical students arrive. What advice would you give to a new student in their first year? Some of my thoughts:
Bring a pen, a notepad and a bag to carry handout sheets in. Most importantly, bring lunch or money for it, as most days you'll have things morning and afternoon. Make sure your phone is on silent, and try not to come in late. It is also very unpleasant to sit through a lecture while hungover.
Probably no need for a shirt and tie in a lecture, but don't come in dressed like a gangster or in anything very revealing, as people will probably laugh. Jeans and a t-shirt should be fine.
Has anyone else anything to add?
