Pursuing a medical degree is a cherished dream for many aspiring healthcare professionals. However, due to the fierce competition, limited spots, and high entry requirements, not everyone can secure admission into a medical program. The good news is that there are alternative undergraduate degrees that can also pave the way for a successful career in the healthcare industry.
We often hear people speak about the qualities necessary to become a doctor. Whilst there are many skills required to be a great doctor, they do not necessarily look the same in each person. Moreover, each doctor is different and as with all people, all have their different strengths and weaknesses. This is important to understand before we delve into the characteristics to be a competent medical student and doctor. We need to understand our own strengths and weaknesses, so we can use the former to our advantage and work on the latter. This article is by no means a comprehensive list, but rather a few traits that I believe anyone would benefit from having.
BMAT or UCAT: Which one should I take? Candidates for UK medical degrees must take entrance tests, the University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) or the Biomedical Admissions Test (BMAT), to demonstrate their aptitude.
