" The Millennium Fellowship provides an exciting opportunity for me to pursue a goal truly close to my heart. As a medical student of Afro-Caribbean descent, I have seen the role socio-economic inequality plays in health outcomes my own family and community. It is a system of inequality that physicians are intimately involved in, albeit often unknowingly, and this fellowship will provide me with the leadership development and network to truly make a difference in this space. I am also looking forward to being an alumnus of the programme to continue supporting social initiatives throughout my medical training and beyond. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: UncoverED
UncoverED is all about improving our trans-disciplinary understanding of health and disease. We seek to better educate medical students about the ways in which they are implicated into social systems and how this, often unconsciously, affects their practice. During the Fellowship, we hope to host 5 lecture-discussion sessions with experts from a wide range of specialties to better understand social determinants of health and disease and what good practises medical students should take forward in order to combat social inequity in their work.
About the Millennium Fellow
Oliver Moodie is a fourth-year medical student at the University of Cambridge. Passionate about the social context of disease, Oliver obtained a degree in sociology alongside his medical studies. It was here that he was inspired by the potential for improved health outcomes through a cross-disciplinary understanding of the social determinants of health. He now works to help develop medical students' understanding of their position within the social system and how this affects even seemingly tangential health outcomes. Oliver is also a keen writer, pianist and foodie who enjoys all things Ottolenghi.
