Hi, today I was on YouTube when I came across a channel called ‘Brainbook’. I found it really useful to watch as the creator not only makes videos about medical school and the life as a doctor and surgeon, but also showed live surgeries including “external ventricular drain insertion” which I found really interesting to watch. I have seen a few videos prior to this of live surgeries however I have never seen neurosurgery so it was very different for me.
This channel was really useful to find as it showed me other sides of medicine that I had not considered pursuing before which could really help with my decision into which field of medicine I want to be in in the future.
I highly recommend this channel to other students looking to do medicine as I found it really useful and extremely interesting to watch the surgeries (I also recommend Buck Parker and Doctor Mike as they also show the practical sides of medicine within the field and skills that doctors and surgeons must acquire)
EDIT: Just as I posted this ‘Brainbook’ liked and replied to one of my comments asking for a video about how he got to where he is including medical school, work experience and more saying he would do, how cool!
