Teaching and Training Responsibilities


Responsibilities

I was a Clinical Adviser to over 150 students from King’s College London School of Medicine from 1998 - 2013. I was regularly thanked and praised by my students for the quality and consistency of my Pastoral Care to them. It has been a great privilege to see my students pass their finals, and then go on, almost without exception, to achieve great things (some of my earliest students are now themselves Consultants). I still continue to receive many professional and personal updates, and reference requests, from former students.

I was Directorate Tutor for the Renal Department and coordinate all aspects of SHO education, training and recruitment for the Department (1998 - 2005)

I received a Thames Postgraduate Medical and Dental Education-supervised “Certificate in Teaching” (2001).

I was responsible for the development of a postgraduate education programme in the renal unit. I set in place a renal medicine and transplantation lecture series for the renal SHOs on the Guy’s site. I also organised the renal SpR education scheme.

I was on the Monospeciality Training Committee, and supervise and oversee the Regional Training programme for South East and South West Thames Nephrology SpRs (1998 - 2004).

I was Royal College Clinical Tutor for Guy’s Hospital (2000 - 2005). I organised the delivery of the general professional training for medical SHOs for the Trust. I also successfully organised the RCP 2000 - 2001 SHO inspection visits, and co-ordinated the Trust response, eventually gaining full 3 year recognition of all posts.
