In 2022, we set about following 4 enthusiastic budding paediatricians at medical school in a process similar to the BBC popular documentary “Child of Our Time” from the year 2000. Last summer we heard the thoughts of Rida, Nikki, Steph & Reeja thinking about a career in paediatrics. Just one year later two of our brave cohort have started work as junior doctors in the NHS and two more are getting closer to finals and foundation applications.

Again as we indulgently re-live our formative years in paediatrics we must thank our 4 volunteers for sharing their thoughts! You can read their previous thoughts here Paediatrician of our Time | London Paediatrics
