I know next to nothing about the process of admission in the UK so I would pleasantly ask any of my followers who are premed/med in the UK to reblog this with the answer of what the UK admissions are like! :)
Thanks lovely friends across the pond! :)
Hi, anon! I wrote a post about this only recently, listing all the UK medblrs I currently know, with the aim of finding new UK Medblrs.Some of them aren’t on Wayfaring’s list yet. Feel free to check them out, many of them are willing to answer questions from prospective students.
I have also written several posts about the UK medical school admission process from my experiece, because it’s quite different to the US one. The entrance exams used, and the application processes themselves have similarities, but you will probably find it much more useful to google UK-specific resources. There are a lot of resources out there, luckily. Bear in mind that what each university expects can be slightly different (for example, the weighting they give entrance exams versus personal statements, or the A level subjects they want you to have taken), so if in doubt, talk to the universities you are considering applying to.
I link to some pretty interesting articles and resources about admissions, and I’m sure you will be able to find many more. If you’re in the dark it might provide a starting point for your journey. Good luck!
Never really looked at alcohol and breast feeding so good question. The website below offers some reliable advice, they recommend if you are to drink whilst breast feeding, have a drink with a meal AFTER you feed, then the alcohol has time to be processed before the next feed. But remember drink in moderation, try and have alcohol free days at least twice a week.
As for smoking…to put it bluntly my view is don’t smoke. Your child will want a healthy parent as they grow up who is going to be around for as long as possible. Smoking is a sure fire way to end up dying prematurely, not something you want to put your child through. And smoking in the house or around the baby is detrimental to your child’s health. Try and cut down first, then attempt to quit with some support…speak to your doctor/nurse.
Yup…probably the weirdest question in the universe! I don’t think it will give off toxic fumes or is super harmful. At the end of the day Bear Grylls drinks it! (Don’t drink pee kids)
