Sharon Yip

I’d like to stand for President of Anatomy Society.

Serving as the exhibition director this year has been an absolute joy; I’ve gotten to know the committee as well as made some friends along the way. We have received excellent feedback and achieved over 120 people attending the exhibition. As a president I hope to continue engaging people from across non-medical subjects to learn anatomy and broaden the sights of this community, as well as build on our existing academic reputation. I think anatomy is highly interdisciplinary as a study and I hope to attract more members from the arts.

I have also organised medical education events as vascular surgery chair of surgical society, the academic coordinator of INUGSC conference and founder of the MedSesh teaching group for Year 4 medical students. I have previously been president of other societies such as Oxford University Art Soc and Oxford Homeless Action group. As an openly queer medic I also hope to learn with others about the history of anatomy and how modern medicine interacts with issues of gender.

As a penultimate year medical student however, I’m aware although I’ve gained some experience, I have limited time. Hence I can promise I will not take up any other extracurricular society roles so I can focus on leading Anatomy Society in the best way I can. Valeriya, Jessica and I would all like to work together to broaden the appeal of our society and improve access to anatomy-related events, as this society is unlike other medically related societies in that we have a unique opportunity to collaborate with those outside of medicine and create interdisciplinary networks.

Summary of Overall points:

* Improve access and appeal for those outside of medicine

* Improve publicity and hence attendance to events that will encourage learning of anatomy

* Build on the success of anatomy tutorials!

* Create interdisciplinary networks by holding more welfare and social events

* Create a talk on gender and anatomy for near international womens day

* EXPAND the society size and interests
