UNIC medical student wins ‘Best Student Poster’ at Newcastle’s Medical Trainees Conference

Final year University of Nicosia medical student Fathima-Asma Anverdeen won the “Best Student Poster” award at the Medical Trainees Conference held recently in Newcastle, organised by the Trainees & Members’ Committee of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh.

The conference, a key annual gathering in the medical community known for its extensive programme featuring lectures by leading medical professionals and a variety of clinical sessions, was held on 26 January 2024.

Fathima-Asma’s poster titled ‘Ink to OR: Surgical Debridement for Necrotising Fasciitis Complicating Tattoo’ received exceptional feedback, and was honoured with the Best Student Poster award.

“During my general surgery placement, I came across a fascinating case that involved an undiagnosed diabetes complication, necessitating emergency surgical debridement for an infected tattoo,” Fathima-Asma commented. “Seizing the opportunity, I submitted an abstract on this unique case for the Medical Trainees Conference, where it not only got accepted but also earned me the chance to present it through a poster. Winning this award, amidst strong competition from both students and doctors, came as a pleasant surprise. As an aspiring surgeon, I see this accolade as just the initial step towards hopefully a promising surgical career. Grateful for the recognition and excited for the journey ahead.”

Announcing the news, UNIC said: “We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Fathima-Asma for her accomplishment, which not only showcases her dedication and skill but also enhances the reputation of our medical school in the global medical community.”
