Final-Year Medics Graduate Early

Special disposition has been granted in order that the graduating students can play a role in the management of the coronavirus pandemic.
The medics at their BA graduation in 2017. From L-R: Adam Townson, Milan Kapur, Becki Nunn, Sara Khoshnaw (5th year medic, in the cap), Sahaj Kaur, Fanny Belais, and Christopher Williams.

All six of our final-year medical students have been granted special disposition to graduate earlier than usual in order that they can play a role in the management of the coronavirus pandemic.

Students Adam Townson, Milan Kapur, Becki Nunn, Sahaj Kaur, Fanny Belais, and Christopher Williams, have all successfully completed their studies, with Becki and Christopher also receiving a Distinction for their efforts. We are immensely proud of each of them, and of their achievements over the last six years here, and look forward to the time when we can welcome them back to King's to recognise their accomplishments properly. 

In addition, a number of our medical Fellows and Bye-Fellows, including Sarah Crisp, Poppy Aldam, Ben Ravenhill and Fraz Mir, are all on the front line working as clinicians, while Fiona Godlee continues to inform the community with the latest evidence-based knowledge in her role as editor-in-chief of the British Medical Journal.

Recent graduate student Norman Shreeve, who completed his PhD earlier this year, has also now returned to his clinical duties at the Rosie Maternity hospital, which means living a life of self-isolation away from his wife and 1-year old son. We thank him for his sacrifices and look forward to seeing him again in the not-too-distant future.
