14 July 2023
Cardiff University’s School of Social Sciences Director of Research Professor Alison Bullock has been awarded an Honorary Fellowship by the Academy of Medical Educators (AoME).
The award, the academy’s highest, is bestowed on exceptional individuals for their outstanding contribution to medical education and the academy.
Professor Bullock’s research focuses on the education and development of health professionals, including research areas such as workplace-based learning, professional development and knowledge transfer and exchange.
Her current work includes a number of projects around evaluating new or revised education and training programmes for trainee pharmacists and pharmacy technicians in Wales
Her most recent work on continuing professional development (CPD) found that the majority of dental professionals did not find CPD requirements difficult to achieve and are an effective way to gain new skills.
AoME was established in 2006 to provide leadership, promote standards and support all those involved in the academic discipline and practice of medical education.
The academy aims to improve care through teaching excellence, housing and honing the very best medical educators and clinical teachers in the United Kingdom.
Dr Bullock received her Fellowship at the academy’s Annual Academic Meeting, Learning Together for Clinical Excellence, which took place at Cardiff University’s Centre for Student Life between 27 and 29 June 2023.
