I joined the University of Leeds School of Medicine in February 2020. I am joint lead for Primary Care placements and Year 3 of the MBChB programme. I am an advisor for the Virtual Clinical Experiences project.
I completed my undergraduate training in Manchester, including a Masters in Medical Sciences. I completed an academic foundation post in central Manchester, before moving to West Yorkshire to undertake postgraduate training as an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow in Primary Care. I have experience of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, both locally and in South Australia, where I was awarded fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners and was an Honorary Clinical Lecturer at the University of Adelaide School of Medicine.
Here at the University of Leeds, I combines working as a general practitioner with my teaching role in the School of Medicine. I am responsible for undergraduate placements in Primary Care, working with GP tutors throughout the region to deliver clinical training. As Joint Head of Year 3 for the MBChB, I support our students through their undergraduate journey.
The Virtual Clinical Experiences team have developed a novel learning platform, in collaboration with a medical education technology firm, which allows clinicians to consult with patients while connecting with students remotely. It focuses on a design-based research approach working with key stakeholders to develop this technology. It is supported by funding from Health Education England.
