Sophie grew up in France where she completed her International Baccalaureate before moving to the UK to pursue medical studies. She has worked in London as a doctor for two years and plans to continue her training in Paediatrics, with a specific interest in paediatric cardiology. Alongside her clinical work she has been involved in several research projects looking at long term cognitive and quality of life outcomes in children with congenital heart disease. Her Masters in Bioethics will be an opportunity to take a step back from the day-to-day dilemmas she faces on the ward in order to examine them in a new light, and question some of the philosophical principles behind her medical work. Sophie enjoys running for charity and plans to complete the New York marathon this year in aid of UNICEF. Her other hobbies include yoga, modern art and travel.
