Many thanks to Tom H and Tom O’C for sharing their experiences with us. We look forward to hearing more of their adventures, and hope that what they have learned will stand them in good stead when they begin their medical studies in October 2016 and, who knows, might lead them to become future specialists in cholangiocarcinoma!
