The team behind all aspects of BiteMedicine


Dr Zac Hana

The delightful doctor. Azeem is an academic clinician in London and was awarded the British Empire Medal in the Queen's New Year's Honours list for contributions to medical education.

Head of Content

Dr Shuaib Siddiqui

The big brain doctor. When he isn’t busy dressing so fly, he’s also commanding the frontline with Azeem to produce top-tier medical content. Some say he reads guidelines and research for fun. Shuaib has completed his MRCP qualification and currently works as a radiology registrar.

Tianjin Medical University

Hi! I’m Li, from the Pearl, Sri Lanka. I am currently a 4th year Medical Student at Tianjin Medical University, China. Medicine to me has always been a dream since childhood - being here now is a blessing beyond compare! I’m keen on pursuing Surgery, but only time will tell for sure. Apart from medicine, I’m a part-time writer and model. I have far too many hobbies to list (the world is your stage, or so they say)! I love and am super grateful to be a part of BiteMedicine, a platform from my far eastern corner of the world!

Hey everyone! I am Soňa, a second year medical student at the University of Aberdeen. Having explored only a small proportion of all the different medical specialties, I am keeping my options open! When not studying, I really enjoy spending time with my dog or dancing salsa and bachata.

Plymouth University

I am soon to start my final year of medical school which will be in Torbay Hospital, in the South West of England. My speciality interests are Emergency Medicine and Trauma Plastic Surgery - I really enjoy the acute, high pressure situations. My biggest passion outside of medicine is fitness - power weight lifting, boxing, swimming, and endurance cardio - the best form of stress release!

BSc (Hons)
Newcastle University

I'm a Biological and Chemical Sciences graduate and current first year MSc Physician Associate Studies student. During my first week in placement I was handed the diathermy and suction in theatre, and since, then I am really keen to pursue pioneering roles for PAs in both primary and secondary care, but especially within operating theatres. I am also keen to get involved with targeted medical education for Physician Associate students.
