Mentor: Prof Steve Field, Chief Inspector of General Practice
Why ALMP? I am thoroughly enjoying my General Practice placement and seriously considering training as a GP after my foundation years. I recently attended a student general practice conference and was inspired by the numerous possibilities within the specialty. Research is another interest of mine. I intercalated in medical sciences (BMedSc) between my second and third years of medicine and got a feel for what clinical research is all about. I also carried out a quantitative research project on my medical elective in Tanzania this year, investigating the association between vital signs on admission to the intensive care unit and mortality outcomes. The mentoring program and the insight Professor Steve Field can give me will be invaluable to better an understanding of areas that I am interested in already!
