It is not realistic to expect prospective medical students to have an unlimited knowledge of medicine, current affairs and the infinite syllabus and range of controversies in medicine. It is however a good idea to try and engage in some of the more important issues and to make use of some of the large range of resources that are available. This document aims to introduce you to some key areas, websites and resources at your disposal. The first few activities introduce some key acronyms that you will read a lot if you keep up with medical current affairs. The final document gives an overview of how to boost your medicine application generally and a list of useful books to check out. Don’t forget to look at the ‘useful links’ sidebar on the right of this page for some valuable online resources – and make sure you have completed the other medicine resources on the HE+ site, as they are perfect for developing your medical knowledge further!
