The 2014 - 2015 Committee

President - Alex Hondsmerk
This is now my second year with SCRUBS, and I'm excited to carry on as President and expand on the superb work done by the society last year! Many of you will recognise me from our evening lectures: I was one of the Anatomy Coordinators last year, as well as getting stuck in with skills teaching and events.

Outside of SCRUBS you'll find me either up a hill with the Wilderness Medicine Society, or in the kitchen procrasti-baking myriad cakes and cookies.
 
Vice President, Head of Academic Cell and Treasurer - Aboyowa Popo
Having been on the SCRUBS committee last year, I decided that SCRUBS was too exciting to leave and took on the role with the longest name.
I am hoping to try my best to continue the high standard that SCRUBS has and to especially improve the profile of the academic cell - to be able to offer as many research opportunities as possible.

Outside of SCRUBS, I am usually found napping, eating or thinking about eating, talking too loudly or laughing too much.
 
Anatomy Coordinator - Amandeep Dhugga
Hi everyone!

This is my first year on the SCRUBS committee and I am very excited about the year ahead. Each week, two anatomy coordinators and I will be delivering engaging anatomy tutorials to support the first and second years with their preparation for dissection. I'm planning to make my teaching style colourful, memorable and digestible for all of you to understand!

Outside of SCRUBS, you are likely to find me volunteering in the hospital, dancing or whipping up tasty treats!

I look forward to meeting you all at the anatomy tutorials and other SCRUBS events!
 
Sponsorship and Publicity Co-Ordinator - Paul Thomas
My name is Paul and I'm a new addition to the SCRUBS team for 2014/2015 where I'll be taking the role of Sponsorship and Publicity co-ordinator. I'm really looking forward to the role where I'll hopefully be getting some new sponsors on board this year and liaising with our current ones. I'll also be letting all of you know about the great events we have planned for the coming year.
I'm an aspiring surgeon but outside of SCRUBS you'll find me enjoying a good (large) glass of red wine, shouting too much at the TV when Wales are playing rugby and fuelling my probably unhealthy coffee addiction!
 
General Secretary - Sobia Navaratnarajah
Hey everyone :)

I'm Sobia and this is my first year at SCRUBS. I will be mainly involved in the general organizing of activities that would ensure smooth running of the society and its events. Getting excited by things that probably actually aren't (emailing for instance ...wut!) and being a perfectionist means the general secretary role couldn't suit me better. I'm thrilled to work with everybody else in the committee to bring you the best of SCRUBS's events :D

Outside of SCRUBS you'll find me in the library catching up with friends or at home cooking batches of curry to stock up for the oncoming weeks! My interests include classical Indian and Bollywood dancing, Shotokan karate and reading books.
 
Careers Co-ordinator - Joanna Lumb
Excited to back on the committee for a second year, Joanna is ready to launch herself into organising multiple events to get everyone one step closer to acing their exams and getting their dream job.

When she's not got her nose in a textbook, Joanna can be found on the campus 3G playing sports (usually rugby or football), listening to music way too loudly, or spending way too much time on tumblr.
 
Derby Skills Co-ordinator - Martin Clarkson
Hello,

My name is Martin and I'm the new member of the SCRUBS team representing all of us here in Derby as the skills co-ordinator. I have a passion for surgery and I'm very excited to get stuck into the role and bring a lot of skills teaching sessions to Derby, as well as helping out with our academic and anatomy revision sessions and workshops.

Outside of SCRUBS I enjoy rambling around various national trust sites or walking through the peak district, relaxing with a glass of wine or two, or watching the ice-hockey.

 
Anatomy Co-ordinator - Cat Seymour
Hi everyone!
My name's Cat and this is my first year on the SCRUBS committee. As one of the three anatomy co-ordinators, I will be delivering teaching sessions each week to help prepare you for the DR. I am really excited about this year and I hope that my presentations are engaging and helpful enough to prepare you for what's coming up.
Outside of SCRUBS I like to paint, take photos or just watching films with friends.
I look forward to meeting you all at teaching sessions and other SCRUBS events!
 
Derby Anatomy Co-ordindator - Sindhoo Rangarajan
Hello Everyone,

My name is Sindhoo and I am a second year graduate entry student. I am excited to be a part of the committee this year and am eagerly looking forward to conducting the dissections and anatomy teaching sessions at the Derby Medical School. Let the fun begin!

In my spare time, I really enjoy trips to the Peak District and an occasional game of chess.
