Karthik Shankarraj
As a part of the BAME community, I recognise that the lack of diversity within STEM needs to be addressed, along with the lack of equal gender opportunities and the difficulties those in disadvantaged areas face in finding good STEM career opportunities.

Although these issues run deep, as Community Outreach Officer, I intend to encourage greater inclusivity in MedTech, such as by highlighting access routes into desired STEM careers for minorities and those from disadvantaged backgrounds. In addition to this, I intend to provide coverage on the current cutting-edge work of minorities in medicine - content that I aim to include in the weekly newsletter. Having previously run a weekly newsletter, I have the experience and time-management to deal with the role of the Community Outreach Officer.

Experiencing this year during the Covid-19 pandemic has allowed me to reflect deeply on the importance of technology its uses in medical settings. Seeing the benefits of telemedicine during the pandemic has made me wholly dedicated to researching more about the latest technological advances in medicine and sharing this with other students less exposed to such information and also with the wider community.
As a Community Outreach Officer for UCL MedTech, I will endeavour to ensure that updates regarding the development of cutting-edge technological innovations will reach far both on campus and outside.
I am a second year medical student and in the last year, I have worked on a few projects related to the use of technology within medicine, one of which was the applying the use of AI in analysing human faces to work out the possibility of an imperical basis to beauty, a topic presently at the forefront of facial surgery research.
As a fervent learner, I would like to spread the knowledge I have gained through my experiences with medical technologies. Over the last year, I have attended several UCL MedTech events, my favouite being the AI in Medicine series! As a current beneficiary of what UCL MedTech has to offer, I would relish the opportunity to be a part of the team and contribute to make a difference.
Vote for me as a Community Outreach Officer for UCL MedTech and allow me to share our passion for technology with the student body and beyond!

Hello everyone. My name is Jessica, and I’m a second year BSc Biomedical Science student. I would love to be running for the position of community outreach officer. I have been actively involved with UCL MedTech for the past two years, as a society member, a graphic designer, as well as a committee member that participated in the planning of events such as AI in Medicine and contacting entrepreneur speakers. Being a part of the MedTech family has been a real fun, and I would love to continue to contribute to MedTech through creating a better engagement experience for every society member we are having.

As I had worked closely with the marketing officer to promote some of the MedTech events as the graphic designer, I am familiar with cooperating with the marketing officer. Furthermore, I have been involved in a digital startup project, and have always had a keen interest in entrepreneurship. With me as the community outreach officer, you could be assured that every MedTech member would have the access to more professional and entrepreneurial opportunities.

Being a community outreach officer, I strive to:
- Work with committee members to promote and organise medtech events
- Be responsible for the weekly newsletter, promoting the society and creating new designs ✨
- Promote medtech society to the wider community through collaborations and sharing experiences

I have enjoyed working with the Medtech committee over the past year as a technology officer, organising the Medtech Mentorship Program which bridges the gap between aspiring mentees with experienced mentors, sharing experiences and exchanging ideas. I am also involved in UCL Medical society as Webmaster, maintaining and designing the website. Sending out weekly newsletters for a startup named MedmentorUK also allowed me to write short excerpts about valuable content to be shared across the community, promoting awareness and insights.

These experiences have allowed me to improve my communication and teamwork skills. If elected, I will ensure valuable content to be shared through well-designed newsletters and events the society organises, promoting awareness through collaborations with different organisations and inviting YOU to join our family!

Your vote is vital. Thank you for your time to read my manifesto. 😊
