I am currently one of the Clinical Research Fellows in cardiology. Prior to this I was an academic core medical trainees (ACT) at the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary (ARI). I am also a member of the Ageing Clinical and Experimental Research group (ACER) at the university.
I hold both an MBBS degree and an MPharm degree. I graduated from University College London (UCL) medical school in 2015, prior to this I graduated with a degree in Pharmacy from the University of Nottingham. Before qualifying as a doctor I originally trained as a pharmacist. During this time, I worked as a research associate for the pharmaceutical company Pfizer PLC.
My interests include cardiovascular epidemiology, cardiovascular disease in women, pharmacology and medical education.
I feel that a strong academic should also be a strong teacher and I continue to develop my teaching skills. During Foundation Year, 1 I designed and delivered a twilight teaching programme for final year medical students at Raigmore Hospital.
As part of my academic foundation training I have worked as one of the teaching fellows at the University of Aberdeen medical school. My responsibilities included teaching medical students and PA students, interviewing potential medical school applicants, student support, writing and conducting assessments and mentoring students.
I have maintained my interests in medical education as a Clinical Development Fellow. In this role, my responsibilities included teaching intermediate life support, bedside teaching, simulated ward assessments and conducting student support and medical school entrance interviews. I gained valuable exposure to many aspects of medical education including assessments, syllabus design and small and large group teaching.
