Adam Crellin Profiled on BBC

Adam Crellin has not had the route into medicine that he expected, graduating two months early from Harris Manchester and joining the NHS during a global pandemic.

He initially volunteered with Oxford Hospitals NHS Trust to work in the Accident and Emergency Department, where he was interviewed on BBC Radio 5 Live and you can watch the full interview on the BBC’s Twitter feed.

Originally due to graduate in July, he graduated early as part of a national scheme to get more medical students qualified and working to stop the spread of the virus. Along with another final-year Oxford student, he kept a video diary of his work and this was again profiled by the BBC and you can watch the full clip on their website by following this link.

When asked about his thoughts on his own fast tracked graduation, Adam had this to say:

“A small does of excitement, with an appropriate amount of apprehension and worry going forward. but there is a job to be done.”

Adam’s story has been replicated up and down the country and the college is immensely proud of Adam and all of the HMC medics for their hard work and dedication during this crisis.
