Meet the Authors

Dr Dibah Jiva

Originally from France, Dibah did her first undergraduate degree in Nutrition at McGill University in Canada. She then went on to receive her medical degree in Nottingham. Here, she was amazed by how challenging the process was for foreign postgraduates. There was an empty void of information and support. 

Dibah researched, wrote and self-published the “Medical School Application Guidebook” in medical school. Its success has spawned a series of books covering almost all English-speaking Medical schools in the world. The UK version is now in its 9th edition and we have now published the Medical School Interview Book.
