JONNY MARTIN

VICE PRESIDENT & PCP LEAD

Jonny is a fourth-year medical student having joined the EMS in his first year wanting to find out more about EM. He comes to GKT as a physiology grad from Bristol where he learned the best way to get involved is to throw yourself into something wholeheartedly. Having spent some time working in healthcare since graduating, he’s sure he wants a career in medicine where every day is very different... maybe EM is the answer?

RAZNA AHMED

EVENTS OFFICER

Razna is a third-year medical student and new to the EMS committee this year. She has a budding interest in EM, Anaesthetics and Cardiology. Whenever met with a spare minute, she can be found munching donuts in The Shed or catching scenic sunsets on walks by the Thames.

 

EMMA BACKHURST

TRAINING OFFICER

Emma is a 3rd year medical student, with a previous degree in physiology from Bristol. Her interests are emergency medicine, psychiatry and palliative medicine. Outside of medicine she is trying to finesse the coveted work-life balance by running around after her toddler whilst attempting to taste test every coffee available within the M25.

 

JOYCE KAM

PCP OFFICER

Joyce is a fourth-year medical student in her second year on the committee. She has interests in PHEM, cardiology, and anaesthetics, and has just finished her intercalated year in PHEM at Barts. When not volunteering as an Emergency Responder with London Ambulance Service, she spends her time baking and dreaming about the day she’ll own a cat sanctuary.

VALERIE CAI

COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER

Valerie is a second year medical student and excited to be the Comms Officer for this year. She has interests in emergency medicine, psychiatry, and paeds. Her accent is an interesting mix of American and British, and often gets mistaken for sounding Scottish, Canadian, or Irish.

NASHRA MAHEEN

SPONSORSHIP OFFICER

Nashra is a second year medical student and is very excited to be on such an exciting and interesting committee!  Having been involved with the society in her first year through the prehospital care programme, she can honestly say it’s been one of her highlights of starting uni and it only highlighted to her how Emergency medicine is such an interesting field.

ELSA DESMOND

ALUMNI OFFICER

Elsa is a final year medical student. This is her 4th year on committee. Elsa's areas of interest are emergency medicine, forensic and legal medicine, and occupational Medicine. When she is not at medical school Elsa is an International luge athlete working towards the olympics.

SAMEEN SIDDIQUI

TREASURER

Sameen is a final year medic, with an interest in Acute Care and Emergency Medicine. She’s been involved with KCLEMS since her first year at university, through different events and the pre-hospital care programme. She remembers being equal parts scared and nervous at her first BLS event when they asked her to scream help as loud as possible (Spoiler alert, first-year Sameen was not very loud). In her spare time, she likes to read, write and travel.

 

CHRISTINA KELSALL

STAGE 1 + 2 REP

Christina is a second year medic who is happy to help and the 1st, 2nd and 3rd year rep for 2020. She has an interest in almost any speciality. You could make one up and she'd probably specialise in it.

 

MARYAM GORALWALLA

STAGE 3 REP

Maryam is a final year medical student and newly part of the EM committee as the stage 3 rep. She loved her emergency placement rotation in her fourth year and is excited to explore it more.
