You do post really interesting-sounding events on your blog. As a non-medical person, I'd love to read occasional reviews of them after the event, if any of you have time (or the inclination) as it would be fascinating to hear different points of view.

Thanks, Clare. Yes, we must post more reviews. I am planning to see Fantastic Voyage and will definitely review that. Anjali has promised to review the Kaplan talk when she has a moment to take a breath amidst job-application form filling. Ah, the life of a medical student!
