Dollapak (Tam) Sakulpanich, Princess Chulabhorn College of Medical Science-UCL
Congratulations to Dollapak (Tam) Sakulpanich on her offers from Princess Chulabhorn College of Medical Science-UCL, University College London, King’s College London, University of Bristol and University of Exeter. She plans to attend Princess Chulabhorn College of Medical Science-UCL to study Medicine.
“I am excited to be enrolling in a dual degree programme at Princess Chulabhorn College of Medical Science and University College London to earn a medical degree (M.D.) and an iBSc degree. I decided that studying in Thailand was the most ideal choice for me as I plan to work here in the future, hence, studying here means that it is easier to gain a Thai medical license and practice in Thailand. Moreover, I chose to pursue my studies in this programme as I am given the opportunity to learn abroad at UCL for a year, solely focussing on conducting research. I believe this programme suits me as it allows me to not only learn Medicine for six years but also to do in-depth research on a particular topic of interest for another extra year for a total of seven years.”
“As a person who likes science – specifically human biology and chemistry – and helping people, I have considered a career in medicine for a very long time. My fundamental interest in human physiology pushed me to further explore the topic of human health, where I was curious about how scientific knowledge can be applied to patients in a very rewarding way. I enjoy helping underprivileged people and participated in school clubs like CubeCare and Operation Smile to improve people’s quality of life. These experiences reinforced my desire to pursue a career in medicine where I will be able to help people and make meaningful differences at a personal level. After shadowing doctors at six6 different hospitals, I have recognised how this career offers a very challenging and stimulating working environment and am looking forward to having the opportunity to work in close proximity with the patients.”
“Aside from my academics, I participated in various school-based clubs. I was the Vice President of Amnesty International, the Vice President and Social Media Representative for CubeCare, one of the founders of the Little Einstein’s Science ECA, a member of the Student Environment Committee and the Operation Smile club, and lastly an organiser of the Breast Cancer group. Outside of school, I have also done volunteering work, such as teaching at the Thai Red Cross Children’s Home.”
