Welcome from Student Chairs



Welcome back to all returning students – well done on passing last year’s exams!

Welcome to all Freshers – well done on getting into medical school and we hope you all have a great year ahead, taking advantage of the opportunities available to you.

The Student Jewish Medical Association provides opportunities to meet new people in a relaxed, enjoyable environment. We hold a number of events both in and outside of London and we have something for everyone, whether it be a Friday night dinner, debate or a night out in town.

I am a third year medical student at UCL, intercalating in Paediatrics and Child Health. I am very happy to be co-chair of the Student Jewish Medical Association this year and am looking forward to meeting new people, putting on great events and supporting students in anything we can help with!



Student Co-Chair: Avi Korman

I’m in my fourth year at Imperial intercalating in Gastroenterology. I grew up in London, but spent two years studying in Israel before returning to home comforts. Please be in touch with any questions/comments, or just to hear about the Student Jewish Medical Association – we look forward to arranging events and supporting Jewish medical students throughout the country.
