“Hi, my name is Angelica and I am a second-year medical student. Being a medical student at the new Lincoln Medical School has countless benefits. I can confidently say that this was the right medical school for me.
The small cohort size helps build great relationships between the students, academic staff, and lecturers. Everyone gets to know each other well, making it a friendly and welcoming environment. There was never a time where I felt out of place or lonely. The Lincoln Medical School truly has a supportive and dedicated environment as despite the current circumstances, the school has adapted exceptionally well to enable the continuation of our in-person Anatomy and Clinical Skills teaching sessions, which have greatly enriched my student experience.
As the pioneers, we have a tremendous role in impacting the future of the medical school. This includes being invited to exciting events such as a welcome party with the BMA, being interviewed for a local news station and many others! There is still a great deal of excitement about the medical school in the local area, which has had a positive effect on placements as many doctors have been very keen and willing to get involved!
Being associated with the University of Nottingham, we get the best of both worlds! We are privilege to have access to both university's libraries and Student Unions, including Nottingham’s MedSoc events and societies. For example, we have been invited to MedSoc balls and socials, the Nottingham SCRUBS society talk, and many more!
Overall, the Lincoln Medical School has surpassed all expectations I had at the beginning and is continuously providing the best university experience to all of its students! If you are considering the Lincoln Medical School, go for it!”
