I'm umming and ahhhing about applying for medicine for 2015 and would like to hear about your experiences of the stuff they don't tell you when applying.
I'm a pharmacology student heading into my 4th year and I have a lot of experience of pharmacy care + dealing with patients but as I didn't really have the confidence before, I never consider medicine as a viable option.
Are there aspects of the course that are not as good as you hoped, or things that you thought you might be taught but weren't? That sort of thing. I'm trying to get past the rose-tinted image of medicine that everyone seems to have - it can't be that perfect!
On the flip side, what are the best bits, and your favourite aspects?
I'd be interested in hearing from some people who didn't realise they wanted to be a medic until they'd finished (or almost finished) their undergrad course. It's quite a commitment in terms of time and money so what made you choose medicine? How does it compare to your first degree?
Thanks in advance
