Care, Compassion and Commitment…

To me these are the things that make up a good medical student and a good doctor.And of course you need to have a little bit of charisma and personality as I hope to demonstrate with this frankly glorious photo if I do say so myself.

This is me, little bit exuberant at times but I like to think that I possess the qualities to become a good doctor. My name is Lydia Edge and I’m just starting my second year of medical school in the UK. Having just completed first year and finding that the more I progress through medical school the more I need somewhere to share the experience I’ve decided to start a blog where I can do just that.
Expect to find posts not just about medical school but about university life in general, about my summers and how I’m spending my time away from studying. I’m still learning about myself as well as about medicine so there will be an element of reflection about decisions I’ve made, paths I’ve taken. Let’s see how it goes!

Ask questions, get involved, I would love to hear from all of you!
