    After my PEG stay I'd say they could work anywhere in the NHS. x

    Hmm, let's hope none of them choose Neurology as their specialism then 🤣🤣

    At least they got exposure to someone with MND.

    No Ellie, not as far as I know.

    Part of it, I think, was for them to suggest investigations, e.g. MRI scan. But, to be honest, time was short. As I pointed out to the tutor afterwards, nobody talked about nerve conduction tests, which, in my case, were definitive.

    Love Doug

    That's very interesting Doug.

    Had the students access to your (or anonymised A.N. Other's) diagnostic tests and clinical exams too to help with formulating a diagnosis or how did they do it 🤔

    Love Ellie.

    Medical student training

    Today I helped with the training of final year medical students at Oxford. Their tutor set up a virtual clinic that I attended via Zoom. The aim was to give them experience of making a diagnosis on the basis of a patient’s answers to their questions.

    It went smoothly, but it highlighted to me the difficulty of diagnosing MND when many of the early symptoms could indicate a range of conditions.
