Irene Karderinis
Hello, I’m Irene and I am running for the Medical Society’s Oncology Chair. I am currently a third-year student and I am about to complete my iBSc in oncology.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my iBSc year and I would like to use my skills and knowledge to help broaden the number of oncology related events and activities available in MedSoc. Over the past year, I have actively participated in numerous subcommittees and committees, such as the RUMS Welfare and the MedSoc Psychiatry and I am the Vice-President of KEEN UCL committee. Being a member of these societies taught me how to hone my skills in the most effective way. Currently, I am in the process of helping to organise the Cancer Charities Alliance Conference, which will be useful when trying to organise future events.

If I become the Oncology Chair, I would like to:
1. Host more talks highlighting the intersections between oncology and other specialities, and I would like to host Q&A career panels.
2. Organise more journal clubs, which is an excellent way not only to learn more about the field, but also to provide keen students the opportunity to practise their oratory skills.
3. Initiate an oncology mentoring scheme. I believe that this is a great way to increase the exposure that students have to the field of oncology and to relevant experts.

It would be a privilege to be the next Oncology Chair and I am eager to inspire the next generation of oncologists.

Hi! I’m Josh and I would love to be the Oncology Chair next year. Oncology has interested me for a while, as I believe that cancer is one of the most unique and interesting conditions with some amazing research going on into its treatment. It is for this reason that I want to help put on events for other students like myself with an interest in the field.

I am eager to use some of the existing networks I have to organise some great talks for you all next year, as I not only plan on doing the Oncology iBSc but have also carried out some work with Oncologists at the University of Surrey in the past. I also hope to collaborate with other societies to run larger scale events, which could help introduce this society to a larger audience!

If elected I would aim to:

-Organise engaging talks (current ideas include: ’Biomarkers for Prostate Cancer’ and ‘A Career in Oncology’).

-Collaborate with other societies to run events e.g. National Undergraduate Oncology Conference.

-Ensure that there are regular updates across social media platforms to promote our events to all medical students.

-Organise tutorials for the GDC module.
