What does it take to be a doctor?
Divya, Yao Quan, Paul, Samantha and Shafia come from vastly different backgrounds but are aiming for the same goal: to graduate from the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine in NUS as doctors. They hear it's not easy. It's not just difficult tests and a substantial syllabus they have to face; they're learning every day that the things they deal with are quite literally a matter of life and death.
Written for both prospective students and the public, 'White Coat Tales' is a fresh, honest look at the struggles they face as they earn their white coats and take on the mantle of doctor.
