Hey guys! I am a Year 12 student going into my Year 13. Stressful! I go to King Edwards Handsworth Grammar School for boys, bearing in mind the sixth form is mixed. I think that books is a way for an individual to learn and reflect on other lifestyles and viewpoints. In this way, I would recommend this Book Club as a starting point toward getting involved and understanding medical books and how they can be implemented toward becoming a doctor. When I started to read medical related books, they impacted me in a way that other books didnt. I was able to understand in some way, what medical school required from meand what I was getting myself involved in.
To finish off, I would recommend; ‘When breath becomes air’ by Paul Kalanithi. It is an inspiring and authentic literature piece that pulled me toward actually applying to medicine. I hope this club benefits you all!
