I am a third year medical student and the Peninsula Medical School Representative. This role interests me because I value good interaction between students and staff. Students need to have a voice to raise issues that are important to them, and to be part of the decision making process to facilitate progressive changes. Through this sort of collaboration students will have a more positive academic experience. I believe as the medical school representative I will communicate effectively with the course representatives to discuss student concerns professionally. I’m confident that I can find ways to improve student satisfaction through brainstorming with course representatives. I will enjoy representing the medical school and presenting in UPSU and university meetings.
A specific area of concern relates to student feedback for academics following each lecture.
I believe I have suitable skills for the position, having had experience as the captain of science and a member of the prom committee during A-levels. Last year I was secretary of the Plymouth University Yacht Club so I have practice in communicating, listening and organising. Above all, I am a friendly, caring, reliable person who is easily approachable and ready to represent my medical school.
