Coffee chat with medical Doctor TIELTS Medical
- By Lidia
Tell me a bit about your background
I am an overseas medical doctor originally from Sudan. I have been living in the UK for the last two years. It was a keen desire to help people by easing their pain that inspired and motivated me to pursue a medical career.
What did you enjoy most about being a medical student?
There are a few things I enjoyed about medical school, ranging from studies to extracurricular activities. Highlights include surgery and volunteering. I volunteered for the Medical Student Association, where I was responsible for delivering classes to students as a way to educate them about health, tropical diseases and the environment. Looking back, I can say university was a very exciting stage of my life.
What made you come to IELTS Medical?
I was looking for an intensive Academic English course to help me prepare for the IELTS exam. IELTS Medical seemed to be the right fit.
What classes did you take?
What did you find most challenging?
To implement new techniques when tackling the IELTS question. For instance, previously I used to answer the multiple answer questions by translating the words from English to Arabic. Now, I am learning to think in English rather than translate. It is a time-consuming process that requires a lot of practice.
What was the highlight of the course?
I very much enjoyed being thought by Simon. His on-going feedback helped me significantly improve my skills. I am proud my progress, especially with reading and listening.
Where do you see your career moving forward?
My goal is to specialise in nephrology and conduct research about the causes of kidney diseases in Sudan.
