Academic Unit of Medical Education
Student Support Assistant
I am a student support assistant within the medical school and joined the team in March 2020. I am a previous graduate of the University of Sheffield and studied Biology, following that I worked for a government funded programme within the widening participation sector. I worked with young students from a variety of backgrounds discover what their future could hold for them, whether that be higher education or otherwise. My current position as a student support assistant means I support the Student Affairs and Support team in all areas, including the Personal and Academic Tutoring System (PATs) and communications with students. I regularly update and track student communications and social media for the medical school and student affairs team to ensure that staff and students are aware of key changes within the department. I also support the running of student support events and activities, as well as wider medical school priorities.
