Director of International Affairs

I have been part of the National Committee for two years now, serving the role of the National Exchange officer. As part of this role, I worked closely with the International Team and the Director of International Affairs to represent the U.K at international events. These experiences increased my interest in the International Federation of Medical Students’ Associations (IFMSA) and other international organizations working with us. It motivated me to strengthen the voice of the U.K at such international platforms and help ensure the needs of the U.K students are well represented at these platforms.

I am looking forward to working with our international partners on joint projects; selecting and preparing delegates for our delegations to international conferences including IFMSA March and August General Assemblies. Furthermore, I am really excited to work with and support the work of the National Director and the whole National network.
