Our thanks to Alumna Dr Gupta who spoke with Medsoc members this week

Dr Alisha Gupta talked with Medsoc members about her journey through university and beyond. 

Piper (Year 12) explains more:

Alisha studied at the University of Nottingham from 2018 to 2023. She also did an elective in Australia where she got to experience their healthcare system first-hand. Her job now involves both research and clinical work which she is enjoying greatly. 

She shared interview and application tips which included:

  • Ensuring your personal statement fits the universities you are applying.
  • Having a deeper understanding of the universities you are applying to and what attributes they look for in students (e.g. a sporty university would like someone who can join sports teams).
  • INTERVIEW CRITERIA - knowing each university's interview criteria is a large part of being a successful interviewee.
  • Know your personal statement inside out.
  • Stay up to date with current news.
  • Practise.

Her final words of wisdom were: 

Work smart, not hard. Medicine is a marathon not a sprint.
