About The Event
On the 24th November 2018, we held our 1st Webinar geared towards medical students who are studying abroad. The webinar was organised as part of our Mentorship strategy, with the aim of equipping participants with tailored advice for their medical school experience.
Our webinar included a panel of Doctor's who have studied abroad themselves; and they shared their own personal experiences and gave general advice about transitioning into the NHS healthcare system. Moreover, a question and answer session was included.
The session focused on:
•Medical School Experience
And any other questions you have.
The Webinar ensured a wealth of tips, inspiration and motivation was provided which was tailored towards studying abroad.
Dr Okiemute Akpomedaye MD
A GP trainee in the Wessex Deanery U.K. I grew up in Nigeria and went to medical school in Ukraine. After graduation I went back to Nigeria to do my internship/housemanship for a year and did a compulsory 1 year working in an outpatient clinic for the government, something called National Youth service (NYSC) in Nigeria. I knew immediately after graduation that I wanted to work in a country that had a working system which was why during internship I started preparing and took some of the exams to be able to work and train in the U.K. Growing up as the last child of 5 in an African home, I learned resilience, hard-work and so much more, most of which has brought me this far in my career.
