At 21, Indian-Origin boy becomes youngest doctor to start working in UK
Britain’s youngest physician, Arpan Doshi, an Indian-origin doctor is set to start working at a hospital in northeast England. Only 21 years old, he is going to start his work as a junior doctor in York starting next month. Doshi graduated from the University of Sheffield on July 17 with a bachelor’s degree in Medicine and Surgery
Arpan is going to beat the previous record of youngest doctor to start work in UK by 17 days. Doshi said he didn’t realise that he would be the youngest person to qualify until a friend checked it out online.
Until the age of 13, Doshi attended a local school in Gandhinagar, Gujarat. Then he moved with his entire family to France when his mechanical engineer father, Bharat Doshi, got a job in Aix en Provence as part of an international project.
He started applying to universities weeks after his 17th birthday and he also received a scholarship offer from the University of Sheffield.
Previously, the youngest doctor to qualify was Rachael Faye Hill, who received her medical degree from Manchester University when she was 21 and 352 days in 2010.
