GP Year Lead and Clinical Tutor
As a GP Year Lead and Clinical Tutor, my role includes teaching medical students, being the clinical lead for a year group, and liaising with the regional GPs who teach on our clinical placements. I am also the lead for Communication Skills teaching for the medical students on campus. I am delighted to be working at my local University.
I want to encourage and inspire the next generation of doctors, just as my tutors did when I was a medical student.
Teaching and supervision
I started my GP career working in Durham city centre and the surrounding villages. Since 2007, I have worked as a GP in South Tyneside. I have been lucky to work in great practices which train foundation doctors and GP Specialist Trainees and teach medical students at all stages of their undergraduate course.
My part-time role at the University enables me to continue working as a GP in the local area, so I can remain up to date and still enjoy working with patients and their families.
