“Careers in Medicine, Psychiatry and Healthcare” byDr Naya Medjedovic MBBS BSc

On Saturday, 27th of January ’24, Dr. Naya Medjedovic gave a fantastic lecture about the medical profession. With a warm smile, Dr Naya made it easy to engage the kids in wonderful conversation and interesting questions they asked:  “What are the most common challenges of the medical profession?” or “What was the most challenging event in her career?” She also answered questions about how many years it takes to become a consultant psychologist.

After the lecture, the children practised hands-on with a stethoscope, reflex hammer, and a pulse on the hand.
This experience may have inspired some future doctors of whom the NHS and the Bosnian community could be proud.

Here is Dr. Naya’s feedback on her experience in the classroom:

” I gave an hour-long talk to the children (who are currently in Year 8 and Year 9) about careers in medicine and psychiatry. They impressed me with their knowledge and interesting questions about my profession and other aspects of mental health – some questions that made me think! They were keen to learn, and we did a short practical session at the end where they got to use some medical equipment which they found engaging.
I was very glad to have had the opportunity to talk about careers in healthcare and mental health to such a great group of kids, through the BH London charity.”
