    Guys I have a question.

    In terms of relavant book that I can read and write about in my PS as well as talk about in a potential interview is there anything you guys recommend?

    I really want something that gives me an in depth insight into a medic's career.

    Thanks!

    The book doesn't need to be specifically about a career in medicine, choose a specific area part of medicine, i.e. medical research.
    I talked about a book on neuroscience and the brain

    Hi I think it's a bit early to start worrying about interviews. What you can do is keep upto date with BBC news headlines about the NHS etc... A substantial amount of my Cardiff interview was about healthcare in the community/(welsh)NHS and they asked some pretty tough questions on the spot.
    So be sure to keep uo with whats going in the news.

    I had a Liverpool interview aswell and in that they ask you to talk about some ethical issue from your work experience or from something you've read.

    I wouldn't really recommend writing about a book in your PS. Unless your applying to Oxbridge I don't think admissions tutors want you to talk about a book.

    They just want to see that you have relevant insight into medicine, are caring and have a work life balance etc...

    To help with your personal statement I would recommend getting the ICS book of amazon that has 100 examples of successful personal statements and there's analysis on some of them.
    Obviously don't copy any of them but it gives you an idea of what med schools really want.

    Hope that was helpful
