Hertfordshire Obsessive Compulsive Disorders (OCDs) Service, Welwyn Garden City, United Kingdom

Clinical interest: Psychiatry

“If anyone would like advice on planning their elective, I would say that you certainly do not need to leave the your home country for it to be a life-changing experience. Try to find a placement you are really fascinated by, and if you are fortunate enough to work with experts in the field, make the most of this. And I would absolutely recommend an elective in Psychiatry – it was a fantastic opportunity to really get under the skin of a complex and misunderstood illness, and I learned a great deal about how we think, and the disastrous ways in which the human mind can turn against itself.”
