Keen doesn't cover it? True, as long as you are referring to socialising and extracurricular activities rather than 9am lectures! When he does grace us with his presence, however, James charms everyone he meets and is never afraid to speak up for a group. In fact, many people have been saved from awkward moments by James' ability to blag his way through any situation with seeming ease and charisma.
Oh, and by the way, watch out for his eyelashes; they can make you do anything. One flutter of those bad boys and he'll have you saying "Yes, Mr. President" before you have a chance to think. You have been warned.

Vice President (Social and Welfare)
Steph is the definition of `work hard, play harder`. You name it and she has done it, climbed it, conquered it or run it. Steph has travelled half of the world with just her rucksack doing incredible and crazy things, making her down to earth and full of amazing stories.however, this rugby playing superstar is not someone you want to cross on the pitch. She is terrifying with her mouth guard in and I am sure she will keep us all in order this year. Nevertheless, off the pitch Steph throws herself into everything 100% with so much enthusiasm and the biggest grin on her face. Smiley by day, sexy by night; this socialite is someone everyone wants to be friends with.

Vice President (Sports and Societies)
Cheeky smile? Check. Slightly gormless expression? Check. Charm? Check. Of Course, it's Josh. Who else would get even the grumpiest of men to open up their wallets when charity collecting or single-handedly manage to stop a bus from driving away on whilst on Bedpush? Being VP for sports and societies in particular, it is guaranteed you will see him taking part and getting you all involved; even at the expense of hir running around in bright pink tights and a tutu.
However, one word of warning: if you're short watch out for his hugs - let's just say you might not be feeling the ground under your feet for a little while.

Rob is our self-confessed number nerd. His OCD tendencies with figures and lists (and making lists of his lists), make him perfectly suited to the responsibilities involved with being Treasurer. Rob haggles for grants with stylish panache, and dishes out the `dollah` to medical groups like Uncle Pennybags at Free Parking. Rob spends his spare time attending to his hobbies of `liking good spreadshetts` and purveying night clubs, and can be found hot-desking between his offices in Greenfield and OCEAN.

Communications and Publicity
With a passion for photography and afternoon tea, this sweetly smiling southerner is the secret behind all MedSoc propaganda. Not only will Mei manage to show up for the next day's 9am lecture without ducking out early on a night out, but she'll speedily remind you of what a state you were by uploading multiple pictures to Facebook later that day. An impossibly organised individual, Mei somehow finds time to study hard but also to produce glossy magazines (check out Echolalia!) and impressive cakes. Her flashy posters dotted tactfully around the medical school and her frequent Facebook posts are sure to keep you up to date with events.

Jamie van Oppen
Meet Jamie - MedSoc's answer to Bear Grylls. With that cheeky grin and decked out daily in his North Face attire, he's ready to climb anything. Climbing Everest... casual. If anyone were to step up to the torrential rain and wind burn (couldn't think of anything worse myself), Jamie's your man! Don't be fooled though. Putting aside his love for the rough and tumble or the outdoors, who could forget Jamie in his strikingly skimpy healthcare worker's uniform, walking about the Med school. A sight to see! Despite all this, he still finds time to whack on his army gear and teach his fellow army people how to `shoot some gun` (although rumour has it, his aim's shocking). How me manages it all baffles me but I can assure you his hardcore organisation skills and committment will ensure the different societies of MedSoc will be knitted together to ensure a first year you'll never forget.

Our very own fairytale Goldilocks, don’t let Katie’s sweet smile and batting eyelids fool you; she is one fierce organisation machine and is perfect for the role of Gen Sec. With her get involved spirit, Katie has become a household name in QMC, having sat on the Homed and Project Malawi committees and at the same time raising thousands of pounds from the public’s loose change as a 2011 Karni rep.
Her ruthless organisation skills will ensure that our Medsoc committee has never run more smoothly to deliver you a fantastic fresher’s year.
If you like a wild one then Anna is your girl – she must be; it’s in her name. The ideal candidate for Social Sec, she’s got buddies in every club in Nottingham; and if you think I’m joking then just wait and see all the people she calls buddy.
Anna is quick to befriend anyone and everyone she can. If you’re not sure where to find her she’s probably in our most beloved Ocean dancing the night away or else hiding out in her secret room in Coco Tang. If you still can’t find her she’s probably just late. She does tend to be late. But I don’t want to give you the wrong idea, she’s a clever girl and can every once in a while be found actually doing work. Happily for you though, she puts the important part of medical school first – the socialising.

As a girl that owns more shoes and dresses than there are days of term, Hannah is always ready to go to a ball. And now, as ENTS Rep, she gets to organise them too. Luckily for her, this involves two of her greatest loves: getting dressed up and organising other people. Armed with a filofax, this organisation queen is guaranteed to deliver some of the year’s classiest events with elegance, clarity and military precision. And she’ll do it wearing five inch sparkly heels. Perfect.
After a year as Social Sec for Medic Rugby, Pete is taking the baton for MedSoc this year and there couldn’t be a better man for the job. This ginger ladies’ man pretty much lives in Ocean, having spent more hours shirt-swinging to Baywatch than he ever has in the library. That said, if you’ve got a problem he’ll be more than willing to take your mind off of it with a nice cup of tea. Under the (hopefully extremely) watchful eye of Anna, you can expect all kinds of antics in the next 12 months.
One final piece of advice; don’t trust Pete with your passport – you could end up stranded in Poland…

Whether you’re in the library or on the Ocean dance floor Ellie is fun, approachable and enthusiastic to talk to anyone. (Caution: stories of her Ocean antics have been known to make people’s hair as curly as hers!). But don’t be fooled, underneath that cheeky VK-induced smile lies a MedSoc veteran that understands how to hunt down the best possible MedSoc card discounts and keep a successful MedSoc running smoothly. Always willing to throw herself into the task at hand, from lecture shout-outs to whipping off her dress to Baywatch with the best of them, Ellie is more than capable of ensuring that you get the most out of your money (and your MedSoc) during your five years here.
Chloe is cute, cuddly and bursting with enthusiasm and ideas - the medical school made it clear they wanted Williams for welfare. Chloe is super-friendly and exactly the sort of person you’d want to be your point of call if you have a problem. She is set on making welfare even bigger and better this year with her fantastic ideas to help look out for everyone, whether it be welfare packs or survival guides. And another thing, Chloe certainly knows how it feels to have your life swamped by the medical school – she once spent 50 hours in QMC on the trot to raise money for Karni. So remember, if you need a hand, find Chloe and she’ll be your fairy godmother!

This football-mad lad has dabbled in a number of sports, with surprising success in all. However, with a shoe collection larger than most girls, he may have more of an interest in the boots than the actual game. Happy and jokey, yes, but avoid Adam at all costs the day after a match. His aversion to washing off the memories of the games, and the mud off his legs, is becoming legendary, so approach with caution. Despite all of this, and being a passionate Derby County fan (no accounting for taste), Adam is a solid addition to the MedSoc team and more than equipped to lead our Medic sports teams to another successful year.

You are more than likely to hear Ellie laughing her way round the QMC before you see her. Ellie may be just pushing 5ft but she doesn’t half have a mouth on her (just ask the boys).
Weekends would not be same without seeing this girl take of all her clothes and Baywatch with the best of them at the Big O...then spending Saturday trying to piece together the extent of her debauchery. Having just about survived first year (with just a few physical and emotional scars) Ellie has made the most of every opportunity thrown at her and is more than capable of the task of sorting out all your medic families

3rd Year Rep
This party-girl-meets-geek has many talents, from being possibly the biggest ever fan of public health to the Queen of Crisis. If anyone thought they could hide her away in pathology, buried under PCR and electrophoresis, they did not know how wrong they were! You can find her there planning her next big Ocean splash, or later in the night rocking in a corner. Holly’s secret plans are to be big.

4th Year Rep
Taking on the role of 4th year rep is the Kili climbing, canoe polo playing Chloe Pettit. You may find her sleeping rough in aid of charity, busting some moves in Ocean, or on a court trying her hand at any racket sport thrown at her. Who could be better at spreading all of our important Medsoc news than the one and only Chloe Pettit?

5th Year Rep
Our stunning 5th year rep is not only pleasing to the eye but also the ear. As well as balancing all her work with a hectic social life, Emma is the heart and soul of Nottingham’s musical talent starring in events like Moonlighters. Playing the tremendous trombone Emma will voice all those much-needed socials to keep you sane throughout the year and ensure any worries are blown away, literally!
