Britain’s youngest doctor beats record by 17 days

ARPAN DOSHI will become the UK’s youngest working doctor when he starts next month.
He graduated from the University of Sheffield as a bachelor of medicine and surgery aged 21 years and 335 days.
Dr Doshi (pictured) beats the previous record for the youngest doctor to start work in the country by 17 days when he logs in at York Hospital.
He went to a school in Gujarat, India, until he was 13 and moved to France when his father got a job there. The University of Sheffield was so impressed with his credentials that they gave him a scholarship worth £13,000.
He received help from his parents and took part-time jobs as a lunch supervisor at a school and in the careers service.
‘My dream is to become a heart surgeon but it is very competitive. It is not really a surprise I have ended up a doctor,’ he said. He beat the record set by Rachael Faye Hill, who graduated from Manchester in 2010, aged 21 and 352 days.
