Career case studies
I moved here from India three years ago. I had started my training there but wanted to do more in the UK as I wanted to train and work in the NHS.
My areas of interest are liver/pancreas and head and neck pathology so I might be looking at a liver removed at transplantation or a partial liver resection or pancreatic resection for tumour.
