Hi, I’m Tommy and I’m a second-year medical student at Aston medical school. In comparison to others, Aston medical school is relatively new yet that is exactly what forms a unique, inclusive relationship between the programme team and students, working together to strike for excellence. From personal experience, I know the pathway of applying to medicine is not easy at all, but not to worry because ‘every day we can only do our best’
