      The best part of Medical school was probably the close friendships I made and the inspiring doctors that I met. I went to Newcastle Medical School which had a range of extracurricular activities I could get involved with- so taking part in charity work, karate, cricket, badminton- allowed me to meet people from many different backgrounds and this all helped to keep my enthusiasm up for the actual study part of it! I think it is really important to be able to keep a balance with work and non-work-related things and this really helped me be able to relate with patients when I met them in hospital. Let me know if you have other questions 🙂
