Omar Risk (Yellow Team) | 2016 – 2017

Hi, I’m Omar! I’ve left GKT for a year (boo) to complete a Masters at LSHTM. My dedication to building skills in psychiatry stems from observing just how many patients in hospital medicine have psychological or psychiatric co-morbidity. The open environment and reflective critique provided by Extreme Psychiatry really helped hone my clinical skills, and I look forward to helping others do the same. This Autumn I’m volunteering at a clinic at a camp for displaced persons in Greece, and apart from being interested in academic medicine and humanitarian medicine, I also play bass in two bands.
