Senior Lecturer in Pharmacy Practice and Clinical Therapeutics

I graduated from the MPharm course at the University of Sunderland in 2009 and completed my pre-registration year in a community pharmacy in Sunderland.

In 2011, I came back to the University as an Academic Tutor, teaching within my area of expertise as a community pharmacist by leading dispensing and public health seminars to level 2 MPharm and OSPAP students. 

In 2015, I took over the running of the Pre-registration Programme. This programme supports community pharmacy pre-registration trainees during their training year and provides academic support towards their final GPhC assessment.

I joined the University as a Senior Lecturer at the start of 2019, with a current focus on numeracy teaching and clinical placements.

Teaching and supervision

I teach clinical pharmacy and pharmacy practice across MPharm and OSPAP courses. I also run the Pre-registration Programme, which supports recent pharmacy graduates through their pre-registration year and associated GPhC assessment.

Research interests for potential research students

  • Pharmacy education
  • Experiential learning
  • Community pharmacy practice

Research

My research is focused on experiential learning in community pharmacy, both as an undergraduate and within the pre-registration year. In 2014, I  secured a £10,000 funding grant from the NPA to complete an MSc in Clinical Pharmacy in this area.
