Introducing the Executive Team behind the creation of MDSC2023!

Aleah is a booked and busy MD4 based at the Austin Hospital. She has been involved in the academic side of MDSC since MD2, as a day subcommittee member, and then as Academic Day Convenor in 2023, making her born for the role of Convenor Academic. Despite what people may say, she believes MDSC is truly the highlight of the academic year, and she is super excited to lead the MDSC team to make MDSC2024, the best, and most innovative conference yet!

Aleah Kink
Convenor Academic


Having been on the team for 4 years running, Kathy has encyclopaedic knowledge of MDSC. However, she wishes the same could be said for her orthopaedic knowledge (still forgetting which one's the tibia and fibula). She hopes to combine her logistics experience, decisiveness, and pragmatic problem-solving skills to lead the internal portfolios. When she's not buried in Slack messages and spreadsheets, you can find her crying over Jason Kelce's retirement press conference or planning a never-ending list of other events. She hopes that you truly enjoy MDSC2024!

Convenor Internal

Jemma Bryce
First Nations Health Advisor

Jemma is a proud Palawa woman from Lutruwita (Tasmania) and MD3 at Western. When she’s not studying, you’ll find her enjoying her love for bushwalking, inconsistently participating in park run or pursuing her future florist career. She’s not shy about reaching over your fence to pick a bunch of flowers – after all, who can always afford to buy them?

Anna Baylis
Rural Health Advisor

Anna is a rural student, growing up on a small farm with extended family in rural and remote Australia. This has fostered a passion for rural health and the associated inequalities faced by many too many Australians. Being placed at Mount Beauty and Fall Creek in MD3 has been the highlight of med school for Anna, where she learnt so many skills and had much hands on experience thanks to some awesome rural generalists. Anna hopes to share this with you at the MDSC this year with the same rural generalists that have taught her so much!

Amelia Grossi
Academic Day Convenor (Day 1)

Amelia is an MD2 student at St Vincent's keen on understanding the hows and whys of contemporary medical practice. When she's not asking the big questions at MDSC, you'll likely catch her making silly jokes with the Medleys crew or walking her 2 beloved German Shepherd dogs.

Emma Klein
Academic Day Convenor (Day 2)

Emma is from the Austin and is keen to ask some hard-hitting questions at MDSC in 2024; who are we practicing medicine for, and why? Aside from managing her sub-committee and the workload of MD3, Emma loves the outdoors (in particular, bike riding), playing piano, baking and her beautiful black Labrador named Onyx.

Nghiep Tran
Academic Day Convenor (Day 3)

Nghiep is an MD4 at the Austin who is interested in challenging the status quo in Medicine and beyond. He strongly believes in self-care and the power of a matcha latte. A running enthusiast like half of all Melbournians, you can find him running the same track at his local park after placement.

Hannah Richards
Academic Day Convenor (Day 4)

Hannah is an Austin MD3 student with a passion for the environment, sustainable healthcare, and her dog, Remy. When she’s not working on the MDSC Day 4 academic program with her wonderful subcommittee, Hannah can usually be found reading, pestering doctors for mini-CEXs, or missing passes as a very average netball wing attack.

Tony Huang
Assessments & Feedback Officer

Tony is a MD-PhD student who spends his days growing cartilage in the lab, at the expense of his own sanity a process he very much enjoys! As the assessment and feedback officer, Tony doesn't actually assess or collect feedback. Instead, he’s focused on organizing an excruciatingly painful exceptionally engaging MDSC research competition this year, ensuring everyone can suffer as he does celebrate their amazing discoveries together!

Molly Wang
Events Manager

As the Events Manager of MDSC, Marvel Stadium is practically Molly’s second home. When she’s not there on business, you’ll find her cheering for her sports team and brainstorming creative ways to get past that alluring boundary line (currently off-limits to MDSC but she’s working on it!). You’ll need to be fast to catch her though as she’s probably already jetted off on her next spontaneous adventure…

Samuel Liu
Publication & Promotions Officer

Sam is one of MDSC 2024's Publication and Promotions superstars. He is known to have an inseparable bond with his camera, always capturing the unforgettable moments of MDSC, as well as creating exciting posts on social media. Outside of medicine and photography, he loves to play and watch basketball, and is an avid supporter of the great James Harden.

Sunny Lu
Public Relations Officer

Sunny is a third-year medical student grateful for the opportunity to lead an amazing Sponsorship Team for MDSC2024, and is keen to deliver a thrilling conference experience for all medical students and sponsors. She also loves tennis and skiing. She also plays the piano, enjoys her adventures to different parts of the world as well as a daily chai latte.

Callie Stavrou
Workshops Coordinator

I am excited to be one of this year’s Workshops Coordinators - we’ve got a huge range of incredible workshops in many different specialties for people who are like me and have no idea what they want to do when they grow up, so hopefully there will be something interesting for everyone! Outside of medicine, I enjoy playing music (join the UMMSS Orchestra!), cycling and walking my 2 dogs.

Armand Gumera
Workshops Coordinator

Introducing Armand, one of MDSC 2024’s Workshop Forge-masters and the man who turns medical education into a physical form! When he’s not fuelling the fires of knowledge, you might find him skydiving from the stratosphere – because who says you can’t forge your courage mid-air? Join Armand at MDSC: where education meets adventure, and every challenge is fuel for the fire!

James Fung
Wellness & Special Events Coordinator

Meet James, one half of the Wellness & Special Events coordinators trying to spread wellness and fun to all our students. From looking for Melbourne's best Banh Mi and Acai Bowls to shooting hoops on the basketball courts, James is constantly finding opportunities to destress from the hectic student life.

Sharon Chen
Wellness & Special Events Coordinator

Meet Sharon, one half of the Wellness & Special Events coordinators trying to concoct the perfect conference chill program. From café hops and hiking trails, she's all about finding that balance in life - whether it's a trek or a Netflix movie marathon.
