Director of Graduate Entry Medicine

  • General Practitioner
  • Fellow of St Edmund Hall

I am currently Director of Graduate Entry Medical Studies within the Medical Sciences Division supported by an Associate Director and two Deputy Directors. I have overall responsibility for the University's 4-year Graduate-entry course. 

My role is largely focussed on medical education although alongside this my research interests are both within medical education and cardiovascular disease. I have a keen interest in supervision and mentoring of students and trainees both clinical and academic. 

At St Edmund Hall as Fellow by Special Election I organise and supervise the clinical education for the clinical students.

Outside of the University, I am external examiner for the University of Southampton's 4-year Graduate-entry programme and the RCSI School of Medicine.
