Postgraduate teaching

Course Lead for Critical Literature Review - MSc Clinical Education

I am a point of contact for staff and students of the Edinburgh Medical School and Deanery of Biomedical Sciences who have questions about library resources and services.

I am happy to see staff and students from these Schools individually or in small groups to help you get the best from the literature databases available to you, find the reading material you need, use referencing software tools or on any other aspect of using the Library.
