• #ByeBMSc

    I’ve been blogging for the university student blog for a little while now, it’s been a welcome change from my essays on patient cases, pathologies and biochemical cellular mechanisms.

  • Exam Woe and Worry

    It’s that season again. Of long days in the library and longer nights binging on coffee (and Oreos) in order to stay awake that extra hour.

  • Why Dundee?

    Dundee is definitely one of the smaller, more student friendly Scottish cities. It may take a little while to grow on you but I’m so glad I’ve gotten to spend my university days here.

Being a medical student means that work experience is a careful balance of […]

  • 10 Things You Need to Know about being a Medical Student!

    I started out with some trepidation in September, but I’ve realised how much I’ve learnt and grown over the past year.  One of my reasons for taking up a BMSc was to take a short hiatus from medicine and I’m glad I did so, however I can’t help but slightly miss being a medic in […]
