Well done to Stephanie for being a runner up in the ‘Zeshan Qureshi Award for Outstanding Achievement in Medical Education’.
Stephanie is an aspiring orthopaedic surgeon currently pursuing an MBA at Cambridge University. During her second year at medical school she was elected the Outreach Co-ordinator for her University’s surgical interest group and through this role helped to develop a Surgical Olympics Programme in order to provide students with CV building and networking opportunities to help with job applications. This involved a technical skills challenge and a series of oral presentations, following a research project.
Following on from this, Stephanie presented the programme at a national conference and co-authored a textbook chapter outlining success strategies for students interested in pursuing a career in academic surgery.
Stephanie also acted as Co-Leader of the Integrated Health and Medicine Interest Group and pioneered a nutrition seminar series to educate her peers about a topic that had been left out of the curriculum at her medical school.
Stephanie is also a passionate mentor and has experience mentoring both pre-medical students and medical students through three different organisations.
“As a first-generation college student, I reached out to mentors to help me navigate pre-medical pursuit in my undergraduate education. Now that I have progressed in my career trajectory, I do all that I can to offer the same support that I received”
We wish Stephanie the best of luck with her MBA and in her future career.
