My current role as MedED early years coordinator (EYC) has motivated me to take on a new challenge - 3rd year coordinator. As EYC (new role created this year) I was tasked with executing the vision of the MedED co-chairs and that is to make sure students in Year 1 and 2 benefit as much as possible from the tutorials run by ICSM societies. To do that, I created the first centralized iCalendar that included all the... read more
My name is Piyush and I am currently in 4th Year, and I hope to be your Year 3 Co-ordinator 2019/20! The teaching between students within ICSM is one of the things I believe has been massively beneficial to my academic career in this medical school. Having enjoyed my time as an OSCE tutor, I hope to pursue an opportunity for further involvement in Medical Education here at Imperial. I believe I have strong... read more
Hi everyone, my name is Ben and I am a 3rd year Medic.
I would like to run for Year 3 coordinator as I am very interested in teaching and would like to be a part of shaping the earliest clinical teaching that is available here at Imperial. I feel I am suited to this role as I believe my organisational and leadership abilities have been tested and honed considerably during my time as an ICSM Football, Squash, and... read more
My name is Tim, and I'd love to be your Year 3 Coordinator next year!
MedEd has already formed an invaluable part of my third year. They ensure the seemingly endless number of Sofia conditions are covered by students who know what it's like to be in our position. The weekly lectures and OSCE teaching have formed a vital foundation for many year groups. I want to maintain this programme... read more
I am running as Year 3 Coordinator mainly because of how much I came to appreciate what MedEd offers. From advice emails and regular lectures, to background work preparing a mock OSCE and tutoring, the support that MedEd offers third years is invaluable. I would like to work hard with MedEd to support students starting their clinical studies (which often leaves you feeling quite lost), and make third year as... read more
My name's Michael and I'm a 3rd year student at ICSM hoping to become your new year 3 coordinator! Throughout my time at ICSM, I've been involved in improving the course and have especially enjoyed my roles as academic rep for year 2 last year and year 3 this year. Now, I'm focused on improving student's learning through MedEd!
Working with the faculty, I've drawn... read more
I'd like to be a MedED Year 3 Coordinator for 2019/2020 as I am keen to improve medical education for younger years. As a current 3rd year medical student, I believe that my experiences can help improve the experiences of future years. For example, one of my aims would be to offer more support for students transitioning from Year 2 into the clinical years. This could involve drop-in sessions at the start of... read more
Hi! My name is Shri-Ishvarya Rajamoorthy!
I am a 4th Year Medical Student and am currently student representative for the Bioengineering iBsc. I take feedback from students to voice concerns which plays a vital role in implementing changes to the course.

I have given tutorials through MM and am a... read more
Hi, I’m Amna!
I’d love the opportunity to be Year 3 Coordinator as I’m passionate about making students’ first clinical year a successful. Venturing into the ‘unknown’ of firms and clinical exams can be quite intimidating but MedEd has eased the transition for me. I hope to make this even more of a reality for students this coming year.
I have strong interpersonal skills which I developed serving as PR... read more
Hi! My name is Rajas and I am currently in third year. As we have had several new changes introduced in our curriculum, I have found MedEd events tailored to our year very helpful for my learning. I would like to be given the opportunity to organise these events for the next students and help make them equally as useful and engaging.
I have been School Liason officer and VP for Teddybear Hospital which has... read more
Having benefitted from a range of tutorials over the past 2 years, I feel indebted to the student-led teaching at ICSM. This MedEd role is the perfect opportunity to get involved. During their first clinical year, 3rd year students can feel out of their depths; and peer support can provide the help that they need, through tutorials for exam preparation and general advice.
During my OSPE preparation, I found the... read more
Hello, my name is Andrew, a 3rd Year Medic
Medical Education is a vital society for Imperial, as it not only provides plenty of academic support but also provides plenty of teaching opportunities for students which is an integral part of being doctors. Year 3 is a big change from the pre-clinical years which can be overwhelming as you are expected to do a lot of independent studying with not much support. That’s... read more
Hi, I’m Lia and I am currently in my 4th year of medicine.
For myself and for many others around me, understanding how to study in 3rd year was initially difficult and confusing. MedED however provided great clarity and structure to the year by providing tutorials, mock sessions and advice. It is for this reason that I would love the opportunity to contribute towards providing this excellent scheme to my younger... read more
