Biography

I am a senior lecturer and placement academic lead on the Diagnostic Radiographer programme.

As placement academic lead, it is my responsibilty to manage all placement activity on the programme inlcuding allocating placement sites, working with clinical colleagues to ensure the veracity of clinical learning, training staff to adequately support students in practice and helping students to navigate their clinical learning. I produce clinical portfolio templates and am responsible for collating clinical progression and marks.

I teach anatomy, physiology and imaging. I have delivered modules on these topics to both radiography students and science graduates on the Healthcare Sciences programme.

I am passionate about the support of students in the clinical environment and deliver regular clinical educator and assessor training for the clinical staff.

In 2019 I completed my Masters in Education professional Practice. My research focus was on peer mentoring and preparing undergraduates for their professional role.
