Overview

I am Director of Professional Development at the University of Exeter Medical School and Director of Faculty Development in the College of Medicine and Health. My educational focus is on the development of "professional identity", for undergraduates through facilitated small groups and postgraduates through supervision and mentoring.

I lead two modules on the Masters in Clinical Education programme, "Principles of Supervision and Mentoring" at Certificate level and "Principles of Curriculum Design and Evaluation" at Diploma level. I also co-lead the Masters "Independent Research" module and sit on the College of Medicine and Health Research Ethics Committee.

I have been involved in formal undergraduate teaching since 1996, initially with the University of Nottingham Medical School and prior to disaggregation with the Peninsula Medical School. My clinical role was as a General Practitioner until my retirement in 2017. During this time, I was an active member of the GP Research Foundation and subsequently as an Associate Specialist in the South West Diabetes Research Network.

I am a member of the UK Council for Teachers of Professionalism and the Association for the Study of Medical Education, a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Educators. I completed my own Masters in Medical Education at Cardiff University in 2015 with a dissertation on "Developing a Positive Professional Identity".
