FELDERHOF, Catriona – Glasgow Royal Infirmary, Glasgow

Nominated by Dr Michael McLaughlin
Originally hailing from Birmingham and coming via The University of Dundee, I am now a dual ICM and anaesthetics ST6 trainee in the West of Scotland. I have been less than full time (since 2011) for the latter half of my training due to combining my training with having a family of three boys. I recently completed my term as the West of Scotland ICM trainee representative and this has allowed me to gain experience on a local level of representing ICM trainee views to the WoS Specialty Training Committee. During this time I established a communication network for the ICM trainees and maintained two-way communications, I set up support groups to improve trainee wellbeing and sought out ways to improve educational opportunities. I believe this to have been invaluable experience and one which I think would be beneficial in developing the skills required for supporting the established trainee representative and for representing trainee views on a national level.

Many thanks to the nominees for applying and to everyone that voted!
