Dear First Years,

You have been at medical school for approximately one semester so far, and things may be feeling a bit shitty. Alternatively they might not be.

From my year we lost a few people after Christmas.

My advice to all of you is that it will get better. My school, like many others starts with an introduction to medicine. It's often not what you were expecting when you started medicine and can be a kick in the teeth but bear with it.

At least give medicine a fair try until the end of the first year...

Although, if you're enjoying it, then sweet, and stick with it!
