I became interested in Anaesthetics and CC following my SSC in 4th year, following that I gained experience in pre-hospital medicine and critical care following trauma in Cape Town during my elective. After returning home, I wanted to find out as much as I could about the specialties but realised that we didn’t have a University society, so with help I set up the society and we’re now in our second year!

Hi, I’m Amy, your treasurer for 2017-2018. I first decided that anaesthetics was a potential career option when I noticed in 3rd year just how much happier/calmer they were than the surgeons… and on top of that, they all seemed to cycle in their free time – my kind of job! Following that, I chose to do an SSC in cardiothoracic anaesthetics in 4th year, which I loved! And then spent half of my elective on the Isle Of Skye doing Rural GP-led Trauma and Anaesthetics – such a fantastic experience. In November, I went with the society to the undergraduate conference and I’m excited to see what more we, as a committee, can achieve this year.
Outside of medicine, I am part of the triathlon team and tour the country (and world!) hunting out the best places to train and race. There’s a few more countries to tick off my bucket list…

My interest in anaesthetics and critical care came about when I was observing theatre lists during first and second year. The anaesthetists were always so keen to share their knowledge of physiology and skills necessary to become proficient in their discipline. I’m also very interested in the complexities involved in post-operative care and the option ti pursue a double speciality in anaesthetics and intensive care medicine. I’m hoping to do an SSC in neuroanaesthesia next year.
My hobbies include playing ice hockey and the somewhat more delicate pursuit of playing classical piano.
