Debate: Writing journals - Isn't it a waste of time?
what do u think about this issue? most of the time i find myself mindlessly copying from some seniors journal without even giving a thought to what i'm writting. I fail to understand purpose of journal writting in medical colleges, come on we r not kids anymore who have to be given some homework everyday. icon_mad.gif

Same here i too havent heard of nething like that. CONFUSED...could u be a little more specific. Is it something like writing in a file ( we do something like that and invariably i copy down whatever my seniors have written)

icon_eek.gif icon_eek.gif icon_eek.gif icon_eek.gif where do u people come from??? dont u have to write down everything u have learned in practicals into a separate record book?
we call it journals u might be doing same thing but with a different name.

good god............. we call it record work. ya then i agree with you. Thats where our curiculum should definetly change. copying on and on and at the end of it
ink waste,time waste paper waste ...................
some even dont carry marks of any sort they are totally waste.

University expects us to write journals on our own from the text and hence think it might be useful.......but we copy the journals from seniors without giving it a thought.......

Hence depending on how u plan to complete it.....it might be useful or may just be a waste of time....
