Teaching interests

My current role as lead for medical education in the cardiology department at Doncaster, means I lead departmental teaching sessions on all aspects of cardiology and I also teaching foundation programme trainees on brady- and tachycardias.

Teaching activities

I enjoy teaching and have taught dedicated small group tutorials to medical students from Sheffield, Leeds and HYMS on a variety of subjects, including; history taking, examination skills and career guidance. I have also delivered lectures to Sheffield, HYMS and Lancaster Medical Schools on topics such as cardiac physiology, patients who discharge against medical advice and ideas for electives. I was previously an organiser and examiner for a privately run mock-PLAB course. I regularly teach undergraduate students and PACES candidates on the ward on an ad hoc basis and help them prepare for their exams. I have also taught at regional and national training days for adult and paediatric cardiology registrars.

I co-developed and published a novel e-learning package for undergraduate medical students on cardiac physiology, based on my PhD and I have co-authored a highly commended cardiology textbook on cardiology (Eureka Cardiovascular Medicine), a which currently has a 4.6* rating on Amazon. I am currently writing another book on post-graduate cardiology textbook “A manual of CCU” with Professor David Brown, which will be in print in autumn 2021.

I'm a current Resuscitation Council UK Advance Life Support instructor and medical director and also former faculty on the Acute Simulated Core Medical Emergencies course in Yorkshire, having helped write and test challenging scenarios for new registrars.

Finally, I designed and wrote patient education videos in combination with the Leeds Children’s Heart Surgery Fund on congenital heart conditions, such as pulmonary stenosis and ventricular septal defects.
