Dr Dom Craver
I grew up in Lewes where I attended Priory School, and between 2000-2002 I took the plunge and headed to Brighton where I enrolled at BHASVIC to study biology, chemistry, maths and photography. Unfortunately I couldn't take the latter subject to a full A-level, so I picked up sociology in my second year. They were real formative years, where I met friends for life and teachers that I will never forget. They weren't just great teachers, but they really believed in their students and without them I don't think I would have had the confidence to apply to medicine. Following a deferred entry, I spent 6 years in London at Guy's, Kings & St Thomas's School of Medicine, graduating in 2009. Since completing medical training I have had a varied career taking me from the tropical climbs of south London to the slightly warmer shores of South Africa and Madagascar. I now work as an emergency medicine registrar, still in training all this time later, but the end is in sight and I hope to return to the shores of Brighton where it all began.
