I began working at the University of Exeter in March 2013 where I joined the medical imaging team as a senior lecturer delivering the image interpretation module to undergraduate students. I have since led on developing, gaining accreditation for and running a Radiographer Reporting masters. This has involved the delivery of teaching, designing of assessments as well administrative duties such as communicating with applicants and their clinical mentors and managing teaching schedules.
This has evolved into an MSc Advanced Clinical Practice which now I co-lead. These latest developments have allowed us to offer broaden our scope in order to offer a range of modules, including new and clinically relevant modules in order to support the development of advanced clinical skills in the healthcare community.
Prior to joining the university I was employed as a diagnostic radiographer in a large regional hospital undertaking a range of radiographic duties for several years. I gained my MSc in Clinical Reporting and practiced as an advanced practitioner reporting radiographer with a focus on musculoskeletal plain image reporting. I still undertake some reporting sessions with my local trust as a member of the bank staff.
