About Joe:

Why did you choose Graduate-Entry Medicine?

Throughout my undergrad in chemistry, I always found the links to medicine the most exciting part of the course. During this course I’m able to combine my scientific knowledge with my problem solving skills, in a way that can have a direct positive impact on people.

Why did you first try rowing?

I wasn’t very good at the other sports offered by the school, so thought I’d give rowing a try, and here we are ten years later …

Who introduced you to the sport of rowing?

Jon Neville/Colin Greenaway at Hampton School

Where else have you rowed?

St Anne’s College Boat Club, OUWBC

What are your proudest rowing achievements?

Coxing the Boat Race

What would winning The Boat Race mean to you?

Winning the boat race would mean so much as it is one of my biggest goals, especially after losing the 2022 race.
