Medical Education Fellows blog, August 2023

Introducing the new medical education fellows!

We’re all really looking forward to working in the medical education team over the next twelve months and wanted to briefly introduce ourselves:

Peter Bannister

I’ve come straight from Foundation in Brighton where I did both F1 and F2. I was also a medical student at Brighton and Sussex Medical School. Areas I’m particularly interested in are obstetrics and gynaecology, public health and epidemiology. Outside work, I’m a keen swimmer and I’m swimming the length of Lake Windermere next summer. Feel free to come and say hi!

Amanda Chang

I completed both years of my Foundation training at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells (in that order). I’m a slight latecomer to medicine – I obtained an MSc in organic chemistry before medical training at King’s. I’m passionate about the acute side of medicine, quality in medical education and improving working conditions. I love dabbling in creative pursuits like drawing and painting. My go-to coffee order is a mocha cortado. I’m really looking forward to teaching, and meeting everyone! Always open to chatting about learning, work, and life.

Mattie Williams

Hi! I’ve taken a couple of years out post-foundation training, mostly working in critical care in London, and I went to uni at King’s. I’ve got interests in ultrasound, patient safety and staff wellbeing. When I get free time I play netball and run.

Daniel Curry

Hi everyone! I have just completed F1 and F2 at MTW after graduating from UCL in 2021. If you have any concerns or worries about your current or future rotations, then I’m always happy to chat/be emailed.  My main interests are music and sports, namely football, darts and table tennis, as both a player and spectator. I have a particular interest in ophthalmology, specifically glaucoma and will be gearing up for ST1 application this year. I will be primarily based at Maidstone and hope to see many of you over the next year, in either simulation, teaching or at our wellbeing events.  Come and say hi!

Andrew Hui

Hey everyone! I graduated from Cambridge and spent my FY1 and FY2 in London. I’m currently planning to go into medicine (I’m applying for the IMT next year) and love specialties like neurology and rheumatology, but I also really enjoy teaching and getting involved in projects such as quality improvement and research. Outside the office I’m a big foodie and also practise martial arts. You’ll usually find me at Maidstone and I’m always free for a chat or a coffee!

Maziad Al-Abdul Wahid

Hi! I graduated from the Royal College of Surgeons Ireland (RCSI) and did my Foundation training in southeast London and Tunbridge Wells. I’m quite interested in radiology and ophthalmology. Outside the hospital I really enjoy everything that is football. Feel free to pop in if you need help with anything.

Simi Sodeinde

Hey! Simi here, an ex- St George’s student from Nigeria who lives in London. I did F1 at King’s and recently finished F2 at Tunbridge Wells. My interests gravitate towards widening participation, leadership and sustainable education, having held roles in these capacities. Aiming for a budding career in A&E with a side of Simulation. Outside work I’m into theatre, diverse spaces, plants, am obsessed with my 1000+ days Duolingo language streaks and play rugby (my uni glory days are behind me!). Come say hi, always happy to be grabbed for a chat!

Shuchi Kohli

Hi everyone! My name is Shuchi, I have just finished F2 in east London. I’m really passionate about teaching, Ophthalmology, and surgery. Outside work I love trying out new coffee shops and playing tennis. Come and say hi if you have any new ideas or want to discuss ways for us to improve your experience at MTW.
