Brittany Hillman, Medicine Student
"Much of the first year was focussing on healthy bodily functions and anatomy, creating the foundations which the spiral curriculum can build on. Cadaveric dissection is taught at Keele during years 1 and 2, an opportunity I felt enabled the development of a well-rounded anatomical understanding of the human body that is difficult to achieve from pictures in textbooks.
With the demands of medicine, it can be tricky to find and maintain a balance between studying and having a social life. The great thing about university is that they allocate Wednesday afternoons off for you to participate in sports (if you wish to, of course). I made use of this by playing for the university netball team, allowing me to socialise with people outside of my degree and stay fit at the same time.
Overall, I can honestly say choosing Keele was the best decision I made. The campus, hospital and small year groups make it the perfect location to study medicine."
