Ok, yeah, I get it. Another medical blogger showing off to the world their incredible lives. I could try and pretend this is some amazing life changing blog which will stand out over all others but realistically it is not. So what is it?
It’s a chance to talk. Every medical student will tell you how amazing the course is, how incredible it is to make a difference, blah blah blah. Yes it is fantastic to have to chance to do something that one day may make a difference but that is not why I’m here.
I’m here to talk about the real tribulations of medical school. The isolation, the burnout and the subsequent breakdowns.
I am a biomedical science graduate who always had aspirations of becoming a doctor. In Sept 2016, I took my first step forward and started graduate medical school. Doing a 5 year degree in 4 years can’t be that bad surely.
6 months later, here I am. Documenting what has been and hopefully what will be one day, the career I’ve dreamt of for decades.
So strap yourself in, it’s gonna be a bumpy journey!
