Hey,

So basically I am a second year BSc Sport and Exercise Student and I have a goal of one day becoming a Sports Medicine Doctor. So I have been researching recently and have decided to apply for a MBBS Graduate Entry Medicine after my current degree. I understand this is a competitive field but I am hoping to get a 1st Class degree and I have managed to get some work experience at a Sports Medicine Clinic and am hoping to get more experience in a health related area.
My question is, if I don’t manage to get into a Medicine, what career path do people recommend. I want to do something clinical based e.g. Sports Medicine, Physiotherapy, Osteopath. I don’t mind spending a lot of time in education, I just want to have a solid back up plan.

Thanks for your help

It's always a good idea to have a back up plan, but don't be put off medicine if you don't get in on your first try - many people get in on their 2nd or even 3rd application!
If you are wanting to work in the field of sports medicine and sports injury then after medicine, physiotherapy will probably give you the most opportunities to work in clinical sports medicine.
Good luck with your medicine application
