We’d like to offer a huge congratulations to 4th Year Swansea University Medical student, Alessia Waller who has been elected as Chair of BMA’s Welsh Medical Student Committee for the 2019-22 session.
Alessia has been a member of WMSC for a year, acting as the Year 3 representative and this time last year, was elected as Swansea’s deputy representative for the UK Medical Students Committee.
In her own words, she said: “I have advocated access to better mental health support and fairer assessments for my constituents, I have proposed and debated motions at the medical student conference, and I have been invited to planning meetings and roundtable discussions with the Foundation School Board and the GMC on topics such as doctor retention, the UKMLA (UK Medical Licensing Assessment) and students’ mental health and well-being.”
Alessia has a passion for the work WMSC does and already has her sights set on goals for 2019-22. She’s particularly interested in increasing student engagement with the BMA at a grassroots level and increasing opportunities for Cardiff and Swansea students to collaborate with each other on widening participation events. She’s also eager to improve the mental health support services available to Swansea students in particular, incorporating a peer-led component if possible.
Alessia will take up the role in September and will take over from Rhiannon Murphy Jones, who will be graduating from medical school this year.
Congratulations Alessia! We look forward to working with you :)
