Mohammed Lester
As a clinical student, I recognise the importance developing surgical skills, sometimes outside the curriculum, in order to make the most of surgical placements and future foundation training – especially when developing a diverse surgical portfolio. I am confident that with enthusiasm and a positive attitude we can include all students and help prepare them for wherever their career takes them.

Exposure to surgical skills at medical school is limited. As Clinical Skills Co-ordinator you have the unique opportunity to utilise SurgSoc’s platform to organise fantastic learning experiences for students. I believe that this position requires you to be proactive, highly organised and to have lots of experience in running workshops. Below I have highlighted what I believe demonstrates my suitability for this role:

-I have lots of experience in organising workshops and teaching. In February, I co-ordinated a national conference which was attended by a large number of students and trainees. I’m also currently acting as education officer for RUMS RFC and in collaboration with RUMS FC have organised a series of on-going tutorials.
-I have experience of working within a SurgSoc subcommittee and so am familiar with the inner workings of this great society.

Working alongside my partner, as Clinical Skills Co-ordinator I would:

-Continue to run the suturing workshops. My plan would be to raise the scale on which this is run and transform it into a day course which would include talks.
-Collaborate with sub-specialty chairs to organise tailored clinical skills events throughout the year. I would look to organise talks about how surgical skills are changing within specialties, these sessions would be run by surgeons leading the way in innovation within their respective fields.
-Continue to support the smooth running of clinical skills at the annual conference.
