    Hiya

    BASICALLY I'm typing an email individually to doctors and staff who work at a hospital to enquire about the possibility of shadowing them. What should I include? I added an introduction of myself, my a levels, why I like those a levels, why I want to study medicine...

    Is that too much? Should I remove anything? Should I add anything? These doctors don't know me at all and I know for sure they would be incredibly busy so I would like to give them a good impression.

    Cheers

    Yikes, don't let the doctors read that. Although you might be able to get in with a dentist since they don't drink teeth staining drinks

    Yeah! But don't just list them all as such; try and connect your hobbies and interests with medicine and why your hobbies and interests would allow you to work well
