I work in the Health and Human Sciences faculty at the University of Plymouth on an European Regional Development Fund Project, which looks at the market potential for E-Health innovations, specifically related to healthy ageing. Previously I have worked in the areas of medical education, assessment and regulation. I also have a strong interest in the medical humanities and medical semiotics. I teach on and run the administration for the Masters in Clinical Education Module (MClinEd): Assessment in Clinical Education at Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry. I am also a marker for the Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research (FAIMER) distance Masters in Clinical Education. That is hosted by Keele University Medical School.
