As the Clinical Tutor in Surgery I am responsible for the strategic planning and delivery of the surgical courses for the University of Oxford.
As part of this role I chair the Surgical Teaching Committee and organise the 4th year assessments for the University as well as the Final BM assessments. I contribute to the teaching strategy of the Division of Medicine as member and past Chair of the General Tutors Group and as a member of the Clinical Education Committee and was appointed as Associate Director of Clinical Studies due to my contribution to the Oxford course development over the last 12 years.
I was instrumental in the successful introduction of OSCE’s as part of the 4th year assessments for the Medical school and the introduction of multi-professional training in the surgical curriculum. I have undertaken two reviews of the surgical curriculum and completed the Diploma Course in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education in the University of Oxford. I have put in place a formal system of faculty development for teachers, undertaken a review of our assessment strategy and been instrumental in the development of the 2nd BM examinations. I helped set up the Hugh Cairns Surgical careers society for medical students eleven years ago.
