Hi, I'm Michael a final year medical student which means soon I'm going to be leaving Birmingham to become a doctor. I've had a fantastic time during my degree and met some wonderful people so it's going to be rather sad to say goodbye. But you never know, one day I might be back teaching the next generation of doctors and as they will be the ones looking after me I'm my old age I better do a good job. So the place might not have seen the back of me just yet.
I've enjoyed every second of my time here and crammed loads in, getting involved with cutting edge research into organ transplantation (my area of interest), learning about the body and what can go wrong with it, meeting up with friend in Beorma Bar on Saturday evenings or just relaxing in the secret garden (Winterbourne House and Garden; cat's out of the bag now). Life really is what you make of it and the University has loads on offer, so be greedy and get stuck in. The facilities are fantastic as well, with campus being a microcosm of the real world. It's amazing to be able just to pop into the bank, get a hair cut or grab a coffee with friends whilst on route to lectures or the library.
If yo do come to the University all I can really do is encourage you to make the most of the world leading opportunities that are available and also use the staff and facilities to their full potential. The University is always evolving so you never know what exciting thing is round the corner.
