Unofficial Guide to Surgery Orthopaedics Editor. Copy Editor of the Unofficial Guide to Surgery. Director of Recruitment


My work with the team at the Unofficial Guide to Medicine started in the Summer of 2015 having previous worked with Zeshan through a sponsorship agreement between the Unofficial Guide to Medicine and a society for which I was the president. Over the past 2 years I have had the pleasure of seeing the company grow and mature and have had the opportunity to work on a range of exciting projects from sponsorship, to development and to our up and coming surgical book for which I am the editor for orthopaedics.

In my spare time when not studying or working for the UGTM I am huge fan of cooking and often get hooked on learning a new cuisine….currently my obsession is Mexican! Now that I am coming to the end of my undergraduate training I am excited for the opportunities that lay ahead and I am sure that the UGTM will continue to play a big part of my life.

I am currently working to develop an OSCE revision course for medical students at Cardiff University, as well as editing for two upcoming textbooks and assisting with general administration for the company.


I am a fourth year medical student at Cardiff University with an interest in Prehospital Medicine. I have an intercalated degree in Clinical Epidemiology and in the future I am hoping to apply for an academic foundation post with a view to pursuing a career in Emergency Medicine and medical education. In my spare time I enjoy running, cycling and scuba diving. I love travelling and have enjoyed exploring Wales whilst on placement. I have two dogs and look forward to spending time with my family in Loughborough in the holidays. I have joined the Unofficial Guide to Medicine team because I am passionate about medical education and value students and junior doctors as peer teachers.

Executive Personal Assistant


Hi! I’m Lydia and I’ve been working with Unofficial Guide to Medicine since the summer of 2019. I met Zeshan when I was Birmingham MedSoc President during a conference and got stuck in with the company pretty much straight away, starting as a student reviewer for two textbooks and gradually getting involved in a greater variety of roles including contacting Medical Societies, creative contributions in new textbook developments and acting as a product researcher. I think peer teaching is an incredibly useful tool in learning and medical education is an area I’m incredibly passionate about, so being able to learn about the development of textbooks has been an amazing experience. Apart from that I spend my time with good food, bad dancing and excellent friends!

Fourth Year Intercalating Medical Student at the University of Birmingham

CURRENT ROLES / PROJECTS

Webinar Director. Marketing Director.


I am currently a fourth-year medical student, intercalating in Women’s Health, at the University of Birmingham. I started working with Zeshan on marketing the Unofficial Guide to Surgery book, as well as website design. I am now overseeing the social media team creating educational and wellbeing content for all healthcare students.

In May of this year, with placements cancelled because of COVID-19, I started working with Zeshan to create and organise the UGTM Key Clinical Cases webinar series. The sessions run through a patient case from history taking to management, making use of the interactive and engaging functionality of Mentimeter in our presentations. Led by our award-winning authors of UGT titles, the sessions have already reached over 1,500 students and been receiving great feedback from across the world. Now leading a team of medical students, we are hoping to continue to engage and promote medical education for students in this format.
