Studying in Sheffield, uunder lecturers that are experts in their fields and are passionate about the subject, has been really rewarding
During the Venice conference, Ben competed against presenters from across Europe by presenting his work to an audience, which won the award for best moderated E-Poster of the session. Ben adds, “I have managed to publish two systematic reviews and I’m currently working on an original research paper using the results from my research project. I also won the 3rd place prize at the MRes showcase event that was held at the Northern General hospital, where everyone on the course presented their research projects.”
“I chose the Masters programme because it involved both biomedical science and clinical medicine aspects, which were an interesting change from the medical degree. I also chose to do my intercalated year in Sheffield as I love the city – It’s friendly with plenty of outdoor spaces and I am very involved in the University of Sheffield Swimming and Water Polo club.”
The course involved a mixture of both taught modules and a large independent research project. Ben explains, “I really enjoyed the taught modules and assignments as they were very varied and covered areas that I had not studied before. I chose to do my project on using MRI images to accurately quantify mitral regurgitation volume, and I really enjoyed this as I was able to work independently and make my own decisions.”
Ben is looking forward to completing his final two years of Medicine and is looking to specialise in acute or cardiovascular medicine, with hopes to stay in Sheffield after graduating.
