    Don’t forget to update this for the new course next year!! (Thanks, BTW….)

    • I know a little bit about the course, but not very much! Will need to do a bit of research…

      As far as I understand it, the main changes are:
      Longer phase 1
      Haematology is moving to 3rd year (?)
      And I’ve heard that anatomy is now being taught with each block rather than as a separate entity?
