Meet the team

Mr Zac Hana

Co-founder
MBBS
,
King's College London

The organiser and dreamer. He gets a thrill managing the team to ensure deadlines are met, whilst also developing key strategies to ensure the BiteMedicine vision is realised. He can be quite scary at times, but he's a big soft bear at heart. Albeit close to finishing medical school, his work ethic has allowed him to achieve merits in every year and a distinction thus far.

Dr Azeem Alam

Co-founder
MBBS
,
King's College London

The delightful doctor. You might have seen this pretty face on our webinar series. Although all clinical information is produced by our in-house doctors, Azeem and Shuaib command these troops to ensure the product is clinically accurate and up-to-date. Not only has Azeem obtained a BSc in Surgery at Imperial, completed the surgical AFP in London and published over 20 papers, he is also a talented songwriter.

Dr Shuaib Siddiqui

Co-founder
MB BChir, University of Cambridge
,

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 after his FY2 year.

Dr Richard Phillips

Co-founder
MB BChir, University of Cambridge
,

The community godfather and recent graduate. Think of him as your go-to man. So, if you would like to join our ever-growing community and team, then Richard is your guy. This gentle giant will make you feel right at home. Richard has graduated with distinction and is now starting his AFP in Birmingham.
