    To anyone that wants to do medicine, I just wonder what, in your opinion was your best way to find out current medical topics and issues and how often you looked into this. Was there any particular radio or website that helped you with this? Oh and if you got an interview did this come up and what did you say for it?

    I'm not applying to medicine but I too looked into news related to my health care course (OT) both to improve my understanding of the subject and to be able to bring up in interviews. My best advice and the top pages I looked at was:
    - BBC Health and Technology News
    - BBC Health twitter page (Sounds random but sometimes you can find things on here which are difficult to find on the BBC website)
    - BBC Iwonder
    - I f*****g love science facebook page and website
    - And, tell me if I'm wrong but I believe that doctors are accredited by a specific organisation for example mine is the British Association of Occupational Therapists, which posted news up dates online.

    Also, as I said previously, I am not applying to medicine but it may be an idea to learn about the NHS constitution, codes of conduct and the fundamentals of care perhaps?

    I hope this helps

    Don't want to do medicine; doing another healthcare-related course, but I have found these issues very pertinent.

    Antibiotic resistance is a major hurdle that needs to be broken down very soon: article from the Pharmaceutical Journal.

    Obesity and its related medical conditions are another one too: article from the Pharmaceutical Journal.
