Overview

I am the Dean of Medicine and Head of SchooI here at Cardiff University. My academic interests include curriculum design, education leadership and application of systems theory to education delivery. I am passionate about the social accountability of the Higher Education Sector and addressing health and social inequalities in Wales and beyond. I continue to champion the equality, diversity and inclusivity agenda within all that we do in the School of Medicine. I have made a committment to ensuring environmental sustainability for the School as part of action against climate change.

As Professor in Medical Education I was part of the team that designed, developed and implemented the successful C21 Medicine curriculum where I led on the first 2 years and the final "harmonisation" year. I have also helped introduce Wales first Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship based upon the theory of educational continuity.

I am an alumnus of Boston’s Harvard Macey Leadership programme and a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Educators.

As a Cardiff graduate I am proud to have trained in Wales and continue as a Clinical Academic in Nephrology working in the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board.
