First Year Representatives:
The Society Representatives, or “Reps” are a vital part of our team. Their role is to represent our society, communicating with their cohort, announce events, assist with ticket sales and to supply other important information to students. They need to be a well integrated member of the Biomedicine community, working collaboratively with each other to collect, collate, and convey student opinions. We elect our five new First Year Reps being early in the year at a special meeting after our much antipacted annual cAMP.
