Speaker

The speaker and executive admin are the people who run MedSoc day to day. We run the meetings, create motions, plan agendas and write minutes to be sent out afterwards. We also help run the elections (along with VP Communications) and organise the selection of the MedSoc Affiliated Positions (MSAPs). Although we don't oversee a particular portfolio we often work with a lot of the VPs on MedSoc on different initiatives so if you have a question we can't answer we definitely know who can! Aside from our own MedSoc meetings we also chair the Class President's lunch and organise MedSoc AGMs where anyone from the student body can come and ask the council any questions they may have.

About Me

Hi! You may know me as that Australian girl or the one you keep getting emails from about elections. And while I am those things I also love travelling, ramen and exploring Toronto on my bike. After doing my undergraduate degree at UofT I was so excited to stay in Toronto for med school as Toronto is a wonderful city and I have made some amazing friends despite being very far away from home. I have been involved in leadership since high school and love how it lets me connect with such a wide range of people. I look forward to meeting all of you in person soon!

1. Making elections more equitable
2. Increasing student engagement at AGMs

About Me

Hey Folks! My name is Andrew D'Elia and I'm your executive admin this year. I'm very excited to be joining the UofT Med community this year and to contribute some positive vibes to your training experience :)

Although my backstory is not nearly as interesting as our Speaker Zoe's, I too have been involved in leadership positions for as long as I can remember and really enjoy meeting new people. Back in undergrad, I studied biomedical and materials engineering at McMaster—performing math operations more complicated than I knew how to cope with and which would ultimately be replaced with what we call a calculator here today. Outside of school, I enjoy going for walks, chatting about nerdy things and eating good food.

Year Plans and Goals

1. Enhancing the accessibility of council meeting agendas and minutes.
2. Making elections and MSAPs more equitable.
3. Increasing MedSoc awareness and helping constituents navigate our system.

Reasons to Contact Me

1. You have a general question for the MedSoc and need help finding the answer.
2. You want apply for an MSAP (MedSoc Affiliated Position)
3. You want to learn how MedSoc meetings work.
4. You just want to chat!
