My educational focus is on the development of Professional Identity, for undergraduates through facilitated small groups and postgraduates through supervision and mentoring.
I co-lead Professional Development Groups on the BMBS programme at the medical school and act as the Senior Professionalism Tutor in Years 1 and 2, this role being part of the Student Support Team. My other major involvement in the College of Medicine and Health has been in the design and implementation of the Masters in Clinical Education. Currently I lead two modules, "Principles of Supervision and Mentoring" at Certificate level and "Principles of Curriculum Design and Evaluation" at Diploma level. I also co-lead the "Independent Research" module, supervise students completing their Masters in Clinical Education and sit on the College 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 (GPRF) and subsequently as an Associate Specialist in the South West Diabetes Research Network (South West DRN).
I am a member of the UK Council for Teachers of Professionalism (UKCTP), a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA) and a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Educators (FAcadMEd). I completed my own Masters in Medical Education at Cardiff University in 2015 with a dissertation on "Developing a Positive Professional Identity".
