Medical education is constantly being modified to reflect the dynamic nature of healthcare, literature, technological advancements and the needs of the students. As VP Education, I communicate student concerns and opinions with respect to medical education and curricular changes to the faculty. Part of my advocacy work includes representing the student body in curriculum committees including MD Program Curriculum Committee, Hospital University Education Committee, and Student Assessment and Standards Committee (SASC). I also co-chair the Student Education Committee (SEC) to ensure collaboration amongst different student representatives. Additionally, I co-lead educational programs like the MD Longitudinal Academic Mentorship Program (LAMP) and Career Chats with the Office of Health Professions Student Affairs (OHPSA) to assist students in their educational journey. Lastly, I support students in curriculum development projects and ensure that their ideas put forth do not go unnoticed.
VP Education Sr.
Hi everyone! My name is Sofia (she/her) and I am the VP Education Sr this year. I did my undergrad at McMaster and am currently in my second year at UofT med! A fun fact about me is that I play the viola (think big violin) and completed minor in music in my undergrad.
This year, we are working with faculty and other student council leaders to address key student concerns with current elements of the curriculum, such as anatomy and HSR! We are also looking into how how we can better support students who were not able to successfully complete their pre-clerkship OSCE evaluation.

VP Education Jr.
I am a first year medical student at Temerty Medicine, University of Toronto. Prior to starting at medical school, I graduated with a BSc with Honours from York University's Kinesiology and Health Science Program. At York, I was involved with various research and extracurricular roles. My hobbies include reading, baking, and going on long walks. I also enjoy watching sci-fi movies and documentaries about space! My favourite movie, as you might've guessed, is Interstellar. I watched it over 5 times!
Year Plans and Goals
My goal is to ensure that students' voices are heard and that their concerns are implemented in the faculty's decision making committees. Ensuring that we launch a student-led academic support program, promote student representation in the process of curriculum improvement, and expand student research opportunities in MAM and STG are some of my many goals and aspirations as VP of Education Jr. I am very excited to be working on behalf of all Temerty Medicine students.
