Elfadil Elmahdi

Mild mannered medic by day, Kung Fu panda by night. Well, not quite… A former Peer Facilitator, Elf rejoins the team in 2012 thanks to a serendipitous twist of fate… On the final session of Summer 2011, an Extreme Actor’s train was stopped by lightning as he travelled to the EP classroom. As panic ensued, and other team members succumbed to hysterical fainting, a lone figure stepped forward and held out his hand for the role play…

It turns out that Elf can cry on demand, and convinced us all that he was actually depressed. He joined us as a simulated patient throughout his final year in medicine; we welcomed him back (but never trusted him again). Many years on, he’s now a radiologist, and mostly enjoys sitting in dark rooms and looking at pictures of bones.
