Dr. Laura Hansell

I’m Laura, a Foundation Year 1 Doctor, and one of the article writers here at SimpleMed. In my spare time I enjoy playing hockey, swimming and cooking.

I also love to travel and have visited Portugal and Romania so far this year and hope to fit in more holidays soon!

I am interested in a career in emergency medicine in the future, but this year I am rotating through Diabetes/Endocrinology, General Surgery and Obstetrics/Gynaecology. I have thoroughly enjoyed writing articles for SimpleMed as it has consolidated my learning as well as provided a useful (hopefully) resource for others. I use my co-writers' articles to revise before starting a new rotation and find them all thorough yet concise - the perfect learning resource!
