Emily Hotton MBChB BSc(Hons)
Final Year Medical Student, Bristol
Emily Hotton is an O&G trainee working within Severn Deanery following her graduation from the University of Bristol. Throughout her undergraduate and postgraduate training she has published and presented several research and quality improvement projects. During her training in Bristol she was part of a research group developing an interprofessional training programme for maternity students. This work won her the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, Calcutta Eden Hospital Prize 2012. Stemming from this, her interest in training and medical education grew.
She initially became involved in the Unofficial Guide Series by reviewing individual sections, her role grew to reviewing books and recommending adaptations. This sparked her interest in writing and she became an author and co-editor for the Unofficial Guide to Practical Skills and a chapter author for ‘The Unofficial Guide to Obstetrics and Gynaecology’. She shares the ethos of ‘The Unofficial Guide Series’ – that fresh graduates are able to impart knowledge in an interactive, logical, accessible and interesting manner to both students and trainees.
