I have a real passion for global health and international development.

I have spent the year intercalating at Bristol in Global Health and have just undertaken my own research project in Zambia. The whole process from start to finish has been a journey requiring new skills, determination and fiery passion. The role of research in developing countries to help improve the health and social inequalities is something I am a huge advocate for, and as a member of the committee this year I hope to subtly increase interest in more mixed methods and qualitative research. I find this research methods deeply inspirational and culturally educational. This type of research is becoming more recognised internationally and I hope to increase understanding in the INPSIRE journal club sessions.

The skill to be able to critically read and appraise papers will be invaluable throughout both medical school and for the rest of your medical life! Knowing the significancy of certain statistics tests, when to ignore p values, be impressed by odds ratios and when someone is trying to pull the wool over your eyes because they didn't get the results they wanted, are all easy skills to pick up, and will turn your opinion of trawling through research papers for that BMedSci project around in a flash!
