Alumnae Career Talk: Dr Zoe Young

Dr Young advised Lower Sixth students interested in a career in medicine

Many thanks to alumna Dr Zoe Young, who returned to FHS on Monday afternoon to speak to Lower Sixth students interested in pursuing a career in Medicine. Zoe, a General Practitioner, left Francis Holland in 1984, continuing on to complete her Science A levels and undergraduate degree before working as an Aid Worker for several years internationally, and a Technical Advisor in public health for Médecins sans Frontières in Brussels. 

Zoe departed Brussels for Imperial College, where she studied Medicine, and recently completed her GP training. She spoke to pupils at length about her experiences as both a medical student and doctor, emphasising the importance of clear communication and enthusiasm; citing the desire to ‘think about the whole person’ as reason to leave the hospital environment and train as a GP.

Zoe advised the girls on how best to complete their personal statements - giving examples of questions they are likely to be asked at interview  - before answering questions from pupils, keen to learn from Zoe’s experiences.
