Personal profile

Research interests

An accomplished medical education leader, teacher, researcher and clinician with proven strengths and skills acquired during my career in the United Kingdom and Australia. I have been involved in medical education research for 15 years and am frequently invited as a facilitator and speaker on education and leadership at national and international forums. Research has been translated through co-authoring and editing several best-selling medical education textbooks. 

My passion for medical education extends beyond the undergraduate forum into the graduate forum through my roles as member of the Education, Development and Evaluation Committee and a lead facilitator for the educator program of Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA). I work clinically as a consultant anaesthetist at Gold Coast University Hospital and am a Fellow of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA). Clinical research areas include medical leadership education and patient safety.
