In today’s world, we have seen a massive number of youngsters who are becoming the role models of many fellow youths. Here comes another boy from India who scripted history to become the youngest doctor at the age of 21. The Indian-origin doctor named as Arpan Doshi who became the UK’s youngest physician, where he already started his work at a hospital in the UK. He had already graduated with his Bachelor in Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree from the University of Sheffield at the age of 21 years and 335 days.

Previously, the youngest doctor in the UK was only 17 days older to Arpan Doshi, and he beats the record when he starts working in the Hospital. When asked about the record, Arpan told The Sun, “I didn’t realise that I was the youngest student to qualify until a friend of mine checked on the internet. I haven’t told my parents till now, but I know they will be very proud.”


Arpan Doshi studied in a school situated in Gandhinagar in Gujarat till the age of 13. He and his family moved to France as his father, Bharat (a mechanical engineer by profession) got transferred.

After he turned 17, he started finding and applying to universities and faced many rejections. Eventually, he got three offers from different universities. The University of Sheffield was so much impressed by the young talent that they offered him with a scholarship of 13,000 pounds (INR 12lacs approx).

Arpan also got financial assistance from his parents, but he did a part-time job as a lunch supervisor at a school and in the careers service to manage his education.
“My dream is to be a heart surgeon one day, but it is a very competitive field this days. It is not really a surprise that I have ended up as a doctor,” said Arpan.
Previously, the doctor who hold the record of the youngest doctor in the UK was Racjal Faye Hill who received his medical degree from Manchester University at the age of 21 years and 352 days in 2010.
