Biography

I work in knowledge transfer and enterprise for UCL Medical School Education Consultancy. I develop and run educational programmes for doctors and other healthcare professionals.  My consultancy work is aimed at universities, teaching hospitals, and national departments of health, and helps them develop across four key areas - curriculum design, assessment, faculty development and quality assurance.

The bulk of the work is for overseas institutions, including training doctors from Ningbo University in China, and training leaders in medical education from across Kazakhstan.  

I train junior doctors and consultants in communication skills on behalf of the London Deanery, in areas including breaking bad news, listening to patients, and presentation skills.

In postgraduate medical education I write and tutor on Masters level programmes in medical education, including those in educational supervision and clinical leadership.

Research Summary
My Orthopaedic research has examined ways to reduce intraoperative infection rates.  I have researched the influence operating lights and forced air warming blankets have on airflow in theatre, and the possible implications for contamination of the operative site by microbe-laden dust particles.

My educational research has looked at near peer teaching and the mentoring of medical students that have not succeeded in passing final MBBS exams at the first attempt
