Senior Vice-President

Verity Diamond

Hello! My name’s Verity and I’m the clinical Vice President of Galenicals. I am particularly interested in the welfare of students as I have been through the welfare system myself. I know what it is like, and medicine can be tough at the best of times! I am here to make sure the clinical years run as smoothly as possible for everyone - with help from the rest of the team and faculty of course. I am also here to get your feedback and to pass this on to the faculty - so don’t hesitate if there are any problems that I can bring up in a meeting. 

I also want to make Galenicals more recognised as a society within the SU - as there is at least 1000 of us! Please feel free to drop me an email at any point and I’ll try my best to help solve the issue in question.

Foundation Vice-President

Ishita Handa

Hi, I’m Ishita, your Preclinical Vice President for the year 2018-2019! I make sure that Galenicals is doing the best job possible for everyone in first and second year, as well as anyone intercalating. I attend regular meetings with the faculty to voice your views and make sure change happens in a way that most benefits students. I’m also here to help you guys with anything else you may need! If you’re having any academic or pastoral issues, don’t hesitate to drop me an email

Secretary

Jaime Chan

Hi, my name is Jaime and I’m a fourth year student, as well as the Galenicals Secretary this year! You’ll be getting lots of emails from me but I’ll try to keep it to a minimum when possible! I’ll send you the weekly Galenicals Newsletter pretty much every Monday. This will keep you updated on what’s happening in the medical school, draw your attention to opportunities to get involved with and quick-links to various places on the medical school webpage. If you have any questions or concerns, I’m happy to receive emails - I’ll do my best to help, or at least point you in the right direction!

Ents

Kirstie Kirkley & Ella Beard

"Hi everyone, we’re Ella and Kirstie! From Black Tie Balls to Bar Crawls, as your Galenicals Events Directors this year, we’re in charge of maintaining the reputation of the ever-envied medic social scene. We’ve got your calendar pretty sorted for the next year, but are always here to listen to suggestions or help out if you fancy setting something extra up yourselves!

Sports

Rachel Sharp & James Steeds

"Hey, we’re Rachel and James your sports reps for this year. As medics, all our teams understand the lifestyle of the course. Training, friendlies and league matches happen both in the week and on weekends, offering flexibility. Off the field we have socials running all year, within individual clubs and all together! All clubs have their own kit and stash available to purchase as well as some standard Galenicals stash, so if you fancy just ordering that and coming to all the socials and not doing any actual sport that’s perfectly acceptable..."

Sports

Eleanor Hennebry

Hi, my name is Eleanor and I am your Performing Arts Director for this year! I’m here to support Galenicals Music and Theatre, to make sure that we put on plenty of performances and get to showcase the talent we have in this medical school. 

Galenicals Music has a great range of different ensembles to join and we’re able to set up small groups for those who are interested. Our groups are non auditioning and welcome all abilities so they are a great way to meet new people across lots of different year groups.

I’m Elena and I’m the Alumni Director for 2018-19! My role over the next year will be in helping keep graduates in touch with the medical school, and organising events for both alumni and current students. I will be organising talks by alumni to cover topics such as making the most of medical school, ideas and tips for career opportunities and planning, and I aim to encourage mentoring roles helping with the transition from medical school to foundation years. Hopefully you will be able to be involved in some of these events - congratulations and welcome to Bristol Medical School!

Hello and a massive congratulations to your Bristol offer. I’m Mary and my job is to assist in all aspects of web presence, social media, online bookings and even editing this handbook. I wish to keep you up-to-date and engaged about the vast range of events, opportunities and deals available at med school.
