This week we sit down with Dr. Jenny Kennedy. Jenny is an Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Unit Senior House Officer at St. Vincent’s University Hospital. We were introduced to Jenny by Dr. Shyam Gollapalli from Episode 2!

We discuss how her Transition Year Work Experience nearly put her off studying Medicine. Dr. Kennedy breaks down her time at college and the reality of becoming qualified in this field. Jenny speaks about how she even toyed with the idea of dropping out before she broke through an inflexion point.
