Overview

Throughout my career as a GP, I have been committed to delivering high quality healthcare through ensuring my knowledge and skills are honed for practice. My motivation to keep learning has naturally led me to develop a special interest in clinical education. I have guided my teaching career so that I continue to be involved with curriculum areas that are related to patient-facing healthcare roles. I enjoy working with others to develop their communication skills, clinical reasoning and decision-making skills as I feel these are vital for working in complex environments.
