Dana Grigore

Final Year Clinical Educator


Since her graduation in 2013, Dana worked in multiple clinical environments within the UK, including private and academic referral hospitals, charity, and general practice. She undertook two rotating internships, followed by an internal medicine specialised internship at The University of Edinburgh. She has always been passionate about teaching, and during her time spent in academia she decided to continue her path with a career in education.


She is currently heavily involved in teaching veterinary undergraduates during their final year clinical rotations in oncology, internal medicine, cardiology and dermatology. She is also involved in pre-clinical teaching, where she introduces clinical concepts using case-based practical lectures. 


Dana is particularly passionate about creating a strong link between pre-clinical and clinical undergraduate experience and helping students enhance their clinical reasoning and critical thinking skills. She is keen to explore exciting new ways of improving student learning, help them transition into clinical practice and achieve day one competencies. Dana is also interested in wellbeing and sustainability within the veterinary profession. 


Her hobbies include photography, chess, exploring the beautiful Scotland and she recently started swimming. 



Bachelor's in veterinary medicine and Surgery, University of Bucharest, Romania.

Associate Fellow of Higher Education Academy.
