Striving to present events that have a unique mix of knowledge, hands-on experience and networking opportunities!
-I consider myself a strong candidate for the position of events officer at KCL PRASS as I have experience of organising events in both high school and university. As founder of my school’s Biology Club, I was responsible for inviting speakers, coordinating with other team members, deciding on session themes and creating timelines for our activities. After coming to King’s last September, I became part of the MAIN (Medical AI Network) committee team and assist with events of the society, including venue selections and bookings.
-I have interacted with, observed and read about the work of plastic surgeons and have found it fascinating. Plastic surgery is unique- it is a very broad speciality, encompassing everything from handling severe burns to highly nuanced microsurgery. I have attended suturing workshops organised by King’s societies and have found the hands-on element in surgical training to be very interesting. Plastics in particular demands a high level of dexterity and prescision. These workshops made me realise that the work of an events officer is crucial- through practical events and webinars, students can be inspired to pursue plastics as their future specialty.
-My goal as events officer will be to work closely with other office bearers and leverage our respective areas of expertise to conceptualise and organise exciting and highly informative events for King’s students. I will work closely with other events officers and the committee to ensure that venue bookings, speaker invitations, sourcing of required materials for clinical skills sessions and event activities are done in an efficient and smooth manner.
-As events officer, I will seek to enhance our collaboration with other societies and centres in King’s in order to provide opportunities for members to learn more about plastic surgery. I am also really interested in MedTech, and plastic surgery has a huge scope for robotics and AI improving patient outcomes. I would love to conceptualize and organise events related this particular domain linking tech to plastic surgery.
