A keen ENT enthusiast with excellent organisation and time management skills that should enable all committee members to be kept well informed!

I would love to be a Secretary for the ENT Society for next year, my final year. I am very passionate about ENT and I am looking to get involved with the society, having been a keen member and attender of events this year!

It would be great to be part of the committee and be involved with a society that promotes ENT and educates other students about the specialty as I feel it is very underrepresented in our curriculum and an area less well understood by many students as a result.

I feel I would be suited to the role of Secretary as I have been Events Lead for the Rheumatology Society where I helped organise and run the first ever National UK Student Rheumatology Conference. This had to be done completely from scratch as the society was very new and so I helped coordinate the organisation of the conference with Rheumatology Societies from four other universities, organise speakers, secure funding, select a charity, organise the ticket purchase process and decide how to host the day. These experiences required strict organisation, time management and communication skills to enable a great deal of liaising with different people to ensure the conference could run as planned. A large part of my role was ensuring everyone involved with the conference was informed and on the same page, hence I had a large secretarial role as part of the Events Lead role. Additionally, I attended regular meetings with the society and often produced a summary document for those who were unable to attend. These skills will be invaluable should I be elected to be Secretary for the ENT Society.

Additionally, in my role as Year 4 Student Representative, I honed my communication and organisation skills further. These skills enabled me to represent a large cohort of the year group who had been affected by unfair marking of QIP projects and discussions I had with senior faculty resulted in the medical school overturning original marks and remarking projects to achieve fairer results for the students affected. My communication skills and the experience I have had organising a conference will help me to be a great secretary for the ENT society and ensure everyone is informed!
