Farazi Virk - President

Hello, I’m Farazi and I am really looking forward to working with our amazing committee in my role as President of PaedSoc this year. This is my 3rd year on the committee and since starting BSMS I have always been greatly involved in all things PaedSoc so I am excited to share my ideas to continue to drive the success of the society for another year. I have many ideas planned for this upcoming year including our hugely anticipated conference, fundraising and teaching sessions for all students interested in this broad and dynamic specialty. There are a range of events that you can get involved with and I hope to meet many of you taking part in all we have to offer! I am excited to make it the best and most successful year yet so make sure to join in the fun!

Hello, my name is Bradley and I am really excited to work with this great committee over the next year. Under Farazi's leadership, we will be organising events to fundraise for our chosen charities, as well as our annual National Conference for Paediatrics. I have thoroughly enjoyed all Paeds events in the past, whether it be the Conference itself, bake sales or Teddy Bear Hospital visits - the presence the society has is widespread and I am thrilled to be a part of it once more. I hope to see many of you at our events throughout the year.
