I am a Queensland-trained medical practitioner who currently works as Lecturer in Clinical Science and Clinical Practice at The University of Queensland.

I teach first-year medical students foundational skills in history-taking, clinical examination, procedural skills and communication.

Over the past four years, I have successfully run eight large-cohort courses in Clinical Practice and mentored over 50 clinical tutors. More recently, I have taken on the role of Academic Lead for Clinical and Professional Learning in Year 1 of the MD Program.

I am very interested in innovative approaches to clinical skills teaching in medical education, as well as team functioning, junior doctor and medical student health, safety and wellbeing, and transition to clinical practice
