What did you love most about playing for the OUIHC? Playing for the OUIHC has been a highlight of my time in Oxford, complementing academic and college life. The club is a diverse group united by a shared interest in hockey. It will be interesting to see where everyone ends up. The best part of the club is having a great group of friends to hang out with both on and off the ice.
What are you doing now? I am a part-time MSc student in Oxford also pursuing postgraduate medical training in Emergency Medicine at the University of Toronto.
