About Us

Dundee Research and Academic Medicine Society (DRAMS) is a student-led society within the School of Medicine at University of Dundee.

Our aim is to promote research and academic medicine within the medical school, and to provide medical students with opportunities in research.

DRAMS holds annual research events, including Discovering Research and Research Showcase. These events give medical students and academics the opportunity to present some of their own work and achievements in research. We also organise various workshops, talks and Journal Clubs throughout the year, and publish newsletters to help broaden one's understanding in research.

We are proudly supported by clinicians and staff from Ninewells Hospital and Medical School, as well as DCAT, INSPIRE, The Academy of Medical Sciences and PasTest.

DRAMS Advisor

We are pleased to introduce our DRAMS Advisor, Dr Anna Maria Choy – a senior clinical lecturer and a consultant cardiologist with interests in inherited and acquired arrhythmias. Dr Choy is INSPIRE lead for the medical school and is also the director of the Dundee Clinical Academic Track.

Dr Choy's research interests include issues pertaining to arrhythmia – in particular implantable cardiac electronic devices for arrhythmia management, familial arrhythmias, anti arrhythmic drugs and atrial fibrillation.

Alongside Dr Choy, DRAMS aims to equip students with skills in research and academic medicine within the medical school.
