    Hey,

    Whilst you wait for Leeds students/grads to answer, here's the general rule on stethoscopes for med schools across the country:

    You don't need one till you start clinicals (3rd year). Any cases where you may need one, you'll be provided with one.

    Chatted to a Leeds fresher who came to my college, she had to buy a steth at christmas for her hospital placements so yeah, it's a good idea.
    The recommended one for med students is the littman Classic II S.E

    If you have the grades and are definitely going, just get one if you want one. You'll need it at some point.
