Hello everyone! Let me begin by saying welcome to my blog. I’m really excited that you have clicked onto my blog page and that you are reading my first post. I decided to start this blog because I have so many thoughts and ideas about medical school and the application process. I wanted to share this with you guys so I thought a blog would be a perfect platform to do this. I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and tell you what my blog is all about.
Here are some quickfire facts about me so that you can get to know me a bit better, be sure to check out my about page for more info:
- Age: 19
- City: London
- Study at: UoN
- University Year: 1st year going on 2nd year
- Go to binge-worthy show: Grey’s Anatomy
Why the name The Baby Medic? Well, simply because until I have finished my foundation years I will most likely consider myself a baby medic, not quite reached full medic level. Training in the UK is 5 years at university studying medicine followed by two foundation years. After that, you can go into specialist training which varies in years. As you can see I still have a long road ahead of me and I’m intrigued to track my growth through the blog. It was quite difficult for me to decide a name that was just right, luckily I think I found the best fit and I’m really happy with it. What do you guys think of it? Feel free to leave your opinion in the comments.
What to expect from my blog:
- My experience (+ tips and tricks of course) of the application process.
- My daily life as a medical student, what I get up to and posts about key parts of my education and training.
- Transparency in my posts and in answering any questions that you have for me.
My main aim of writing about my life and experiences at medical school including the entry process is to help anyone that is reading this. Whether you accidentally stumbled across my blog or a friend suggested it, I believe that there is a reason for it. I will be putting in the work to ensure that you most definitely benefit from it. I want to provide the help that I feel was hard to come by when I was applying just one to two years ago. As well as giving other medical student someone to relate to because MEDICAL SCHOOL IS HARD. I’ll say it again: medical school is hard but I know it’s going to also be one of the best experiences of your life and my life.
I am happy to help anyone that has any questions, needs advice, or just wants to talk about their experiences with me. So, please feel free to message me on any of my social media or through the contact me section of this site. I would also love it if you send me post requests because I want to tailor this blog to what you guys want to read about.
