Current Affairs

In this section, we go over some of the important 'current affairs' topics that they like to ask about in medical school interviews. We'll keep this section updated each year with videos and text articles for the most relevant stuff.

In general though, we recommend browsing through BBC Health or the Guardian health news once a week or so, and reading the Student BMJ in the months before your interview so that you've got an idea of what the hot topics are for that year.
