During the first and second year at the Sydney Medical Program, the course is broken up into core ‘Blocks’ rather than semesters. What better way to celebrate the end of seven weeks of learning Respiratory Medicine than with a party for your year group? Blocks are often completed by an exam and as such, the Year Representatives are charged with the task of hosting an event to allow fellow first and second years (and anyone else who wishes to join in) to celebrate, commiserate, dance and enjoy themselves before they dive into another Block. Traditionally the End of Block Parties are themed to suit the topics just completed and allow for a bit of creativity over costumes. In the past the End of Block Parties have been held at a number of Sydney venues – as long as they fit the year group, play great music and are open late, these parties are the perfect way to mark the stepping stones of your pre-clinical years.
