Catherine Lovegrove

BSc (Hons.), MBBS, MRCS


Academic Clinical Fellow in Urology

  • Surgical Teaching Associate - Green Templeton College

Through my intercalated BSc and Academic Foundation Programme at King’s College London and Imperial College London respectively I developed an interest in researching surgical training and urology. Initial research concerned training and assessment in robot-assisted radical prostatectomy, among other operations, using risk-analysis employed in industry and within other medical fields. My resultant interest in prostate cancer led me to examine the effectiveness of imaging and biopsy strategies to maximise detection of clinically significant disease requiring treatment, minimise detection of non-significant disease at risk of over-treatment and how to account for the learning curves within urological training.

I was appointed as an Academic Clinical Fellow in Urology in Oxford commencing August 2019 and will continue my research interest with a view to maximising the opportunities of a surgeon-scientist. Within this I am undertaking a Postgraduate Diploma in Health Research through the Department of Continuing Education at the University of Oxford.

Aside from clinical and research work I enjoy my role as a surgical teaching associate for Green Templeton College as well as enjoying running or walking in the countryside.
