Syed Rahman - President
Hi, I’m Syed a final year student based at Exeter. It’s my job to make sure we are here to give you all the opportunity to immerse yourself amongst those with a common surgical interest and give an insight into a surgical career choice. I’ll be working with an excellent team to ensure we build on the success of our previous committees. Keep an eye out for our regular series of lectures, revisions days, workshops, surgical skills sessions and our mentoring scheme. Get in touch with any of us if you have any questions or suggestions.
Conor Jones- Vice President
Hello! My name is Conor and I’m a 3rd year here in Exeter. I am passionate about surgery and look forward to working alongside the rest of the committee to make sure that your experience with ExeSS is a great one!! My priority is to ensure that everyone, whether interested in surgery or not, gets the best possible surgical experience throughout their time at medical school. Therefore if you have any ideas or suggestions then please let us know and we will do our absolute best to bring your ideas to life.
Lara Jehanli - Secretary
Hi, I'm Lara, I'm a third year medical student and the new secretary of the surgical society. I was so excited to be chosen for the committee that I went to the infamous Peninsula S party dressed as the 'surg soc secretary' (see pic)!
My aim for this year is to improve the way we organise ourselves as a committee. I want to make sure that every year the society gets bigger and better and I think this can be achieved by laying out some well organised foundations for each new EXESS committee to work from.
I am very excited about what we've got lined up for you this year! Please do not hesitate to contact me via the EXESS email address should you have any questions, or come and say hello.
Mike Olivier - Treasurer

Feel free to contact me. Good luck everyone
Nikhil Thakral - Clinical events director (Lectures)
Hi I’m Nikhil and I organise lectures for the society. I find surgery interesting and might pursue that field in the future. Outside of medicine I enjoy playing and performing music, such as playing guitar and singing.
Joe Home-Williams- Clinical events director (Workshops)
