I am a UK medical doctor with a strong interest in clinical skills, clinical teaching, and a passion for anatomy. After graduating from Durham University with a degree in Biomedical sciences I underwent a training year as a biomedical scientist at the James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough.
Here I discovered my desire for a career rich in personal interaction and have since completed my primary medical degree at the University of Warwick Medical School.
I undertook Foundation Training in the Coventry & Warwickshire Foundation School, then core medical training in Birmingham. I have been appointed as an anatomy teaching fellow at the renowned West Midlands Surgical Training Suite (under the supervision of Dr Richard Tunstall and Professor Peter Abrahams) and the dissection laboratory at St George’s University, Grenada.
Most recently I completed a one-year clinical teaching fellowship at UHCW, Coventry, followed by a three-month voluntary post as a medical registrar in Malawi, Southern Africa. Both of these posts involved acute clinical work as a medical registrar.
I am currently posted as a registrar in respiratory medicine in Nottinghamshire, and am ultimately pursuing a career as an interventional radiologist.
