I’m Martin Ryll, a 3rd Year Medical Student from Munchen Ludwig Maximilians Universitat in Germany.
I spent August and September 2019 undertaking an elective in the department for Vascular Surgery and Anaesthesiology in Ho-Chi-Minh City in Vietnam.
Here’s a little bit more about me!
So, why medicine? Who or what inspired you to go to Medical School?
I have always wanted to study medicine! To me, medicine is unique in being able to work in a highly advanced and very diverse academical field while at the same time helping other people (in their sometimes darkest hours).
What’s one piece of advice you’d give to somebody about to start Medical School?
Everything, especially clinical decision making, is about probabilities.
Aside from medicine, what are you passionate about?
I am passionate about tutoring other students: Be it moderating cases in our Clinical Case Discussion Group or teaching basic emergency medicine to freshers etc., tutoring other students is important to me.
Apart from that, I love doing sports and staying fit, usually via going to the gym, bouldering etc.
Why did you enter the ClinicalKey Global Challenge?
I love competitive formats which in my opinion are far too few in the subject of medicine. In my experience, a (healthy) competition motivates certain people unlike anything else, making it the perfect learning opportunity.
If we asked your friends/ family to describe you in three words what would they be?
Probably something along the lines of "inquisitive", "loyal" and "easy-going".
McBurney’s Point, a medical term or a cheese?
Definitely a medical term :)
