Dr. Ethan Kavanagh
Hi, my name is Ethan (as you may have guessed) and I'm a Junior Doctor.
Being born and bred in Belfast, I had a fun time spending my first year of medical school speaking slowly so people could understand the wonders of the Northern Ireland accent. When I'm not doing that, I'm dreaming of eventually going skydiving (and dragging my girlfriend along with me). I used to practice magic and sleight of hand, but after a long day of uni it's much easier to just open a knock-off tub of Ben and Jerry's and watch TV (student life for you).
I'm a committee member of Leicester Insight, an article writer and editor for SimpleMed. Currently, the specialty I would like to go into is emergency medicine and pre-hospital work (air ambulance and the like). What I find appealing is the puzzle that presents with each patient that walks into the department or you get called out to (not to say that they don't have routine presentations and the job won't get boring). Although challenging and intense, it is incredibly varied with a range of different problems patients present. Plenty of people have warned me about still doing 12 hour shifts at forty with little family time, so I guess we'll see what happens.
