University College London
Anca is currently a second year UCL medical student and she is passionate about Neuroscience, willing to specialise in Neurosurgery in the future. She became interested in MedEd after attending a conference on “Medical Education in the time of COVID-19”, which allowed her to grasp the importance of online resources for medical students. She is enthusiastic to be a part of the LearnMedicine community and to share the amazing resources that the platform has to offer with as many students as possible. She enjoyed attending LearnMedicine webinars and she is looking forward to teaching at one herself. Anca’s aim is to continue to bring her contribution towards the growth of the platform, encouraging students to enthusiastically share their knowledge.
Besides MedEd, Anca is also an active member of the committees for UCL Surgical, Anatomy, Medical and MedTech Societies. After being part of a research group in her first year of medical school, she familiarised herself with the process of academic writing and publishing, and she also became involved the editing boards of IYNA Journal and JSAMR. Her experiences so far proved her that learning is a continuous process that takes place not only during lectures, but during every moment of one’s life, allowing her to understand the role of collaboration in attaining progress and ultimately, excellence.
