Charles Newman

Mentor: Dr Andrew Vallance-Owen, Former Bupa Group Medical Director

Why ALMP?  Leadership development has played a central role in my extra-curricular activities during Medical School thus far. I found my tenure as Birmingham Medical Society President exceptionally useful throughout the British Army Officer selection process, at the end of which I was awarded the prestigious Royal Army Medical Corps Bursary (formerly the RAMC Cadetship).
