Is There a Medic in the House?

RGS alumni and their journey into medicine

Aspiring to become a Doctor can often begin at a young age and gaining a place at Medical School is a huge achievement requiring many years of hard work, dedication and resilience. It is wonderful to be able to highlight the success of four students who departed the Upper Sixth this summer and will be beginning their medical degrees either this year or next. Emily Caldwell, Alex Peake, Amelia Bangay and Elizabeth Fearon will all one day become Doctors and it is wonderful to be able to share in their success.

Emily said: “I am delighted to say that I will be studying medicine at Nottingham University. COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of healthcare workers in our society and I’m excited to begin to be a part of this. In addition, I am looking forward to exploring a new city and have the opportunity to meet new people. I would like to thank RGS for supporting me during the rigorous application process and giving me the opportunity to learn from professionals in the medical field.”

Students wishing to pursue an application to Medical School join our dedicated Medical Pathway in the Lower Sixth year and are overseen by Mrs Harkness throughout. The programme supports and guides each student through every step of the process, from researching the merits of the various Medical Schools and identifying which would be most suitable for the individual. The Pathway then prepares the students for the challenging UCAT/BMAT entrance tests and ultimately the rigorous interview process. This year Dr Parry conducted interview preparation with the students and her experience as a practising GP was invaluable. With places at Medical School so difficult to achieve now, it is wonderful to have all our aspiring Medics achieve their offers.

We wish them all the very best for their Medicine degrees. 

Elizabeth said: “It’s surreal that I’m actually at medical school after working so hard for it for years, I still can’t believe it!”
