Previous Ambassador Testimonies

“It is undeniable that engagement in extra-curricular activities beyond the medical school curriculum scope has gained prominence, whilst the importance of pursuing efforts in academic medicine and research is particularly pertinent. Representing your local student network by serving as a NSAMR Ambassador and facilitating the unique opportunities that the organisation is empowered to offer, will undoubtedly facilitate success in this ambition. The role of Local Ambassadors will be pivotal in implementing NSAMR initiatives and key to customising projects on a local scale to complement individual medical school needs. Our Local Ambassadors are valued, rewarded and influential. On this note, The Executive Committee strongly encourages all suitable candidates to apply. ” – Melika Akhbari (Education Lead 2018/2019)

“I applied to become a local ambassador for NSAMR because I wanted to contribute more to the association’s meaningful activities. I enjoyed my role as a local ambassador and found the AGM to be a valuable experience – I became more familiar with NSAMR’s work, met many like-minded individuals and was able to exchange ideas on a national level. Being a part of this national network provides many unique opportunities to collaborate with others and to discover passions in academic medicine!” – Evelyne Kiu (Secretary 2018/2019)
