Dr Ghazal Saadat | 2010 – 2011

“Hello! My name is Ghazal (but everyone calls me Gazelle to make it a bit easier!). I got involved with Extreme Psychiatry as a 3rd year medical student because although I found psychiatry loads of fun and fascinating, there were some bits which I found quite tricky such as how to speak to a patient who was experiencing auditory hallucinations at the same time! Extreme psychiatry provided me with very memorable frameworks to aid my history-taking and the doctors and PFs gave amazing tips to boost my confidence and improve my techniques…I still use all those tips today when speaking to patients from different specialties!”

When not Extreme-Psyching, Ghazal likes to learn more about genetics, bake (& cook), travel and watch films.
