Vanshita Singh / Charlotte Burnett
Hello! We are Vanshita and Charlotte, and are running to be your Medical Sciences Faculty Reps.

During these unprecedented times, where the student body is regrettably disconnected, we believe it is pivotal to introduce strong student leadership.

Should we be elected, we intend to:
*Ensure that appropriate teaching platforms are globally accessible, improve technical support, guarantee taught content is recorded and make certain that any in-person content is available as an online alternative.

*Provide increased opportunities for career-related webinars/events to take place (e.g. mock interviews with alumni, career-oriented internships or volunteering opportunities)

*Host online social events for students to network interdepartmentally. This will boost faculty integration and enhance the social experience of university, making students no matter where they are in the world feel unified.

*Provide a platform where students can be signposted to available Mental Health support, because we appreciate the difficulties that students are confronting and having to adapt to.

*Strive to create a bridge between departments, where students will be free to express and exchange their thoughts and opinions.

In spite of these unique circumstances, we remain confident in our ability to deliver our pledge, utilising our desire to ensure that we deliver the finest virtual university experience, making this a memorable year at UCL
Emily Rose Wagner
Hello everybody! ?‍♀️ I’m Emily. I read Medical Sciences and Engineering and am running to be your faculty representative.

With the pandemic and social distancing, we have been more disconnected than ever. However, as we all aim to work in the medical field, I feel that we should take inspiration from its collaborative nature and connect more across divisions and courses. As such, as rep I would:

• Be sure to meet with course reps so that all courses are equally represented, no matter their size

• Introduce a platform that enables students to create virtual study groups, as in-person meet-ups aren’t always viable

• Make an undergraduate faculty discord server with channels based on interests rather than course

• Improve technical support and ensure that nobody is disadvantaged because of technical problems / where they are located

• Introduce apple-free zones so that medical students can feel safe on campus (unless that whole apple-a-day thing is just an expression ?)

• And do my best to make sure we all have an exciting and memorable year at UCL, despite the unusual circumstances

Hello, I’m Thiara, a 2nd year medical student running for Faculty Rep for Medical Sciences.

With our unfamiliar, virtual learning environment, it’s crucial to be an enthusiastic and committed faculty rep. I aim to use this platform to make this academic year as valuable as any other.

Being a member of RUMSBC and Anatomy Society, I also hope to make this year accommodating to our busy schedules.

My intentions –
- Optimise virtual learning: by increasing Q&A sessions across medical sciences to allow students to interact virtually with their lecturers.

- Reduce blips in accessibility: from resources being accidentally made unavailable to last minute changes to in person activities (dissection labs). This can be inconvenient. We should be giving immediate feedback on how they will be replaced.

- UCL made many contributions during the pandemic, being vaccine development or rapid testing. It would be brilliant if undergraduates could be given opportunities to get involved or at least be made more aware!

- Finally, I would love to have a Medical Sciences inspiration platform that communicates achievements by faculty alumni and opportunities that they could provide current undergraduates.

I hope to have your vote and thank you!
