Welfare & Inclusivity Officer – Samantha Cooper

Hi I’m Samantha! As your welfare rep I help medics with any concerns or worries and support BSMS in including and catering for the needs of all students. If you have any queries, questions or concerns don’t hesitate to get in touch here


What’s your favourite thing about BSMS?
I really love the structure of the course and how everything is done in the term but my favourite thing is the people! I really can have a chat with anyone and the friendly environment just makes everyday a little bit better than a day at any other med school!

What is your best memory at BSMS?
RAG Cabaret! It was so great to see the immense amount of musical talent at BSMS and I really enjoyed performing with choir!

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
Norway because the scenery is gorgeous and the place is so peaceful

What’s your favourite film?
I love the Parent Trap and of course a classic Harry Potter film is always amazing. The original Pitch Perfect is also a real feel good film.

What would be your dream job if you weren’t doing medicine?
Hmm probably something healthcare related still like Paramedic but if not healthcare I think performing on stage would be amazing or looking after babies/toddlers because little ones are just so cute!
