Winston Churchill Memorial Trust Fellowship awarded to Clinical Academic

Congratulations to Professor Ian Sabroe from the Department of Infection, Immunity & Cardiovascular Disease, and Co-Director of Medical Humanities Sheffield, who has been awarded a Fellowship from the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust.

The University of Sheffield Medical School building

The Churchill Fellowships are prestigious awards that allow individuals to travel and learn from international institutions in order to transform lives in the UK.

Ian will travel to New York, and Baylor and Stanford Universities to investigate how they incorporate humanities principles, teaching and methodology into undergraduate and postgraduate medical education and lifelong clinical practice.

This Fellowship will enhance the teaching of Medical Humanities in the Faculty through Ian’s research into the benefits of incorporating humanities learning into medical education. He aims to use his findings to influence medical education policy in the UK, with the potential to positively impact on clinical practice in the long term.

Congratulations to Ian on receiving this prestigious award and our very best wishes for his Fellowship travels.
