Our first official Connecting Alumni and Students Experiences (CASE) event was kicked off with a fun and informative alumni panel.
Over 50 students registered to attend the event where five former students from fields including sexual health and paediatrics came back to share their experiences of medicine and their respective specialisms and to help students to better understand the skills required to work in the different fields.
The panel shared information on their varied career paths and gave advice on topics including choosing specialisms, managing time and why they decided to study medicine at all, and encouraged students to be smart and flexible about their future decisions but overall ensure it was something they love.
Students left feeling enthused and inspired and were grateful for the invaluable advice that was given by the panel. Networking continued after the event and students were able to pick up on previous conversations and ask any further questions.
The CASE events are set to become an annual event in the alumni calendar equipping our students and alumni with the opportunity to experience knowledge and expertise beneficial to work and life, inside and outside of the lecture theatre, from leading professionals within the Healthcare sector.
