“You don’t have to be brilliant to be a doctor. You have to be hard working and have good character. That’s what makes good doctors”

Hey, There!
I’m Mel.


Welcome to my blog, where I will share spicy details from my daily life…
Just kidding, how spicy can a medical student’s life truly be? Jokes aside, I am here to give you an insight to my journey as a medical student in Germany, who is trying to jumble a lot of things together–living on my own, my many hobbies, being fit, social, healthy and at the top of my game in university.
Although let’s not jump into it too fast. Let me introduce myself…

My name is Mel, and it’s my fifth year studying medicine in RWTH Aachen,Germany. We have a really important and difficult exam after the third year, the so called Ärztliche Basisprüfung in German, which is an exam similar to the Physikum, and passed it after three months of studying, for which I am very grateful and will share tips on how I prepared for it. Also, my second states exam is just around the corner (in a year), so stay tuned for it. I am not originally from Germany as I come from Bulgaria, so it is also an adventure studying in a foreign country. I have always wanted to explore new places and being here is a dream come true, despite having its difficulties. Luckily, I have a great support system as my fiance lives close by and I have a very helpful family.
Being a fairly ambitious person, I try to be as organized with my time as I can, so I can have a bit of a balance in my hectic life. That is also a side of me I will try to show in this blog.
Coming to the primary reason you are here–the blog of a med student.
