I graduated from Sheffield University School of Medicine in 1985. I worked in hospitals in Sheffield and Rotherham and then joined the Chesterfield Vocational training Scheme for General Practice which I completed in 1989. I have had a variety of GP posts since then, having been a partner in a large practice in Telford and held employed posts in many different kinds of practices.

I am a Fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

I have been a GP appraiser, a performance assessor for the GMC, an examiner for Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners by the assessment of practice route, and a mentor and assessor for Senior and Principal Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy by Keele’s continuing professional development route.

I worked at Keele School of Medicine between 2008 and 2017, becoming Deputy Director of Education in General Practice in 2015. While at Keele, I taught on the MA (medical education) programme, teaching all modules of the Certificate in Medical Education and co-leading on two (theories of learning and curriculum design) and leading a Diploma module on the theoretical perspectives of simulation-based education. I co-authored a course on clinical reasoning for year 4 students and led the establishment of whole consultation simulations for final year students. I was the lead academic for a small rural campus in south Shropshire where students spent time on GP placements in local rural practices.

I joined Dundee School of Medicine in October 2017 as Chair of Education in General Practice and became the Head of the Undergraduate Division in November 2019. I’m the lead for Dundee’s Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship; a new model of clinical education that originated in North America to address rural, remote and regional healthcare workforce shortages. I’m a founder member of the UK’s Clinical Reasoning in Medical Education group and have a particular interest in this aspect of undergraduate teaching and learning.


My research interests are in workplace-based learning, particularly the Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships, and in clinical reasoning.
