Junior Doctors' Committee


Andrew McArdle: Portfolio – Chairperson

I'm a trainee paediatrician based in London and took over as Chair of the Junior Doctors' Committee in mid-2012. I enjoy cycling for pleasure and commuting, and recently discovered I'm better at running than I expected. I'm uniformly bad at ball games.

My role is to provide leadership, chair our meetings and help support all committee members in their roles. I also represent the committee to the board of trustees of CMF.

Sarah Maidment: Portfolio – Communications (Social Media)

GPVTS ST2, Oxford Deanery.

I'm mad keen on road biking - particularly if it involves big hills and big miles. I also enjoy tea and cake, playing my flute in the band at church and a good game of Scrabble.

There is something for everyone. I am responsible for the international portfolio. I am a huge advocate for international ministry as a doctor having returned from Madagascar in 2013. I represent juniors on the Junior Doctors Committee and CMF International Committee, work closely with Head of International Ministries to help with courses/ events on international topics. I love meeting up with junior doctors to encourage them to get involved in work overseas short/ long term, the opportunities available and some practicalities. If this is you, do get in touch via the CMF office.
