What do you dislike about the Liverpool medicine course?

If I had to pick something, I would say I’m least looking forward to the mental health unit, as this isn’t a major interest of mine, however it is still something I’m more than willing to give my all and jump into, as I recognise I need an understanding of all aspects of medicine – not just the parts which I find interesting
