Joining the Becoming A Doctor TV Studio

Guest instructions

Congratulations! You’ve been invited to join a Becoming A Doctor broadcast as a valued guest. Follow this guide and you’ll be setting yourself up to have a smooth experience. 

Before the broadcast

Make sure you have the following:

By Laptop or Desktop

  • A laptop or desktop with a webcam and mic.
  • A recent version of Chrome or Firefox.
  • A strong internet connection. Just like Skype, you must have a strong internet connection for it to work well. If possible, connect to your router with an ethernet cable instead of using WiFi.
  • We recommend wearing earbuds or headphones to prevent audio echoes.

By Mobile Phone

If you don’t have a laptop or desktop, then you can join on your phone. But the experience is usually best on a laptop/desktop. On a phone if using Android, we recommend the Chrome browser. If using iOS (iPhone or similar), you must use Safari.
