In August we were delighted to welcome Merve Dursun from Turkey to spend time with the Sportswise team learning about Sports medicine and physiotherapy. This was part of her elective study from Koç University School of Medicine in Istanbul.  It may seem a long way to come for work experience but sports medicine is a small world and many years ago Merve’s Uncle was a student of Professor (Nick) Webborn’s in London and he wanted his niece to gain a similar experience. 

We greatly enjoyed having Merve with us and couldn’t let her leave without a small send off – which of course included cake as you can see in the photo.

Merve said she felt she had a wonderful learning experience and that she learned more in four weeks than in her previous two years! Thanks to all the team (and patients) who helped create such a good learning environment for her.
