Angus Livingstone (OI 2013-15) give talk on Medicine to current pupils.

25 May 2022
Alumni News

On Monday 9 May, OI Angus Livingstone visited the school to give a talk to aspiring doctors in Years 10 to 13. He left Ipswich School in  2015 to read medicine at Oxford. 

Now coming to the end of his F1 training he has decided to leave medicine to forge a new career. In August Angus is moving to Stanford  university in the US to retrain in law and use his medical skills to work developing policy within law and medical ethics, something very  relevant in the US at the moment.  

Angus’s main focus for the talk was to look at the pros and cons of medicine, with particular focus on ‘What are the options after qualifying as a doctor?’ Clearly option one is to continue in medicine, however, many other fields outside of medicine employ doctors. These include venture capital, pharmaceutical companies, Google with Google Health to name a few.  

He discussed how many doctors are able to combine practicing medicine as well as external work, using as an example his current High  Dependency Unit consultant who splits his time between Oxford and Thailand investigating tropical diseases.  

It was a very informative talk, finished off with some excellent questions by our students about all manner of topics relating to entrance exams, life at Oxford and work life balance. 

Many thanks to Angus for giving up his time. 

Mr Calver, Deputy Head of Sixth Form
