I am an academic co-ordinator for the MSc in Clinical Education Programme. This role involves development of an online learning curriculum; as well as teaching, assessment, student support and dissertation supervision of those involved in undergraduate and post graduate education of health professionals (including doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other allied health professionals).

I have had a keen interest in teaching and mentoring since graduating as a nurse and have been teaching within medical education since 2001. I joined the Emergency Care, Clinical and Resuscitation Skills team (ECCARS) in 2004 where I developed my interest in integrating skills to produce a case-based approach to simulated learning whilst facilitating learning about professional skills in relation to intimate examination.

My dissertation for the MSc in Clinical Education looked at the relationships between Peer Assisted Learning and Communities of Practice in relation to creating a supportive learning environment in the clinical context
