Hello world!

Hi, I’m Hannah. I’m sixteen and am studying chemistry, biology and religious studies in the hope that I will become a medic in the future. I have created this blog to document areas of medicine which I am particularly  interested in or enthusiastic about, as well as direct experiences I have from work experience, volunteering and wider reading. I  am also keen to read blogs from other aspiring medics, medical students, junior doctors and more senior medics.  I trust that this will help me gain a greater insight into the life of a medic and, ultimately, to earn a place in medical school.

Although I am not fixated upon a specific speciality in medicine, I find myself more curious about surgery. The multitude of controversial ethical issues in medicine also interests me, for example the political and moral correctness of euthanasia, stem cell research and abortion.
