Overview

Hello, I’m Dr Mandy Tonks. I am a Reader in Medical Education.  I completed my PhD in pulmonary immunology and lipid biochemistry in 2001, and PgDip Medical Education in 2005. My teaching focus is infection and immunity.

I teach on the MBBCh programme, the BSc Medical Pharmacology and the Intercalated BSc Medical Pharmacology and Molecular and Cellular Pathology programmes. I am a CBL facilitator, PCS tutor and SSC tutor.

I am the Director of Postgraduate Research studies in the School of Medicine and oversee our PhD, MD and MPhil programmes. I lead on training and support for this group of students.

I am the senior personal tutor for the MBBCh programme and I am passionate about the importance of individual support for students and the transformational power of access to education with mentorship and support through key educational transitions.

I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
