Why made you choose the MBChB?
The course was just the right balance of theory and clinical and I’d heard Leeds was a fantastic city to be a student in!
Why did you choose to come to Leeds?
Relaxed, friendly atmosphere, lots to do and a nice part of the world in general.
How has the MBChB at Leeds influenced your career?
Good solid grounding in general medical topics gave me a passion which has persisted.
Would you recommend the MBChB to others? Why?
Yes – solid theoretical grounding and early clinical exposure have made most of my Leeds graduate doctor colleagues extremely well rounded professionals who perform very well in their early years - capable, caring clinicians.
