Alyssa is in the final year of her medical degree. During the course of her degree she took electives in Vietnam and in Oxford and found both experiences profoundly influential in different ways. Apart from her studies, Alyssa serves as Chair of Insight, the global health group of the University of Adelaide, and served as Publicity Officer for the Australian Medical Students’ Association’s Global Health Committee. Alyssa enjoys and performs classical and contemporary ballet and performs with, and is on the executive of, the Adelaide University Medical Orchestra. Beyond Oxford, in the shorter term, she hopes to train in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and, in the longer term, to work within the global health arena from both a medical and public health perspective.
