Passing on knowledge and experience to medical students and junior doctors in training is of vital importance for the future of neurology and clinical medicine, and I am strongly committed to teaching.
I am a designated Educational and Clinical supervisor for core trainees and specialist registrars (SpRs) at St Mary’s Hospital, which involves supervision of their clinical duties, regular assessment of their performance, including provision of feedback.
During term time, I undertake fortnightly bedside clinical teaching for Final Year Imperial College medical students at St Mary's Hospital, London.
I run weekly interactive small group seminars for neurology specialist registrars (SpRs) and neurology core trainees at St Mary’s Hospital, London. These help junior doctors to learn the diagnostic process, and to understand the approach to investigating and managing patients with a variety of neurological presentations.
I am an OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination) and PACES (Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills) examiner at Imperial College, and participate in medical student examinations every year.
I have also been a regular neurology lecturer on the PassPACES course for more than 10 years, providing bedside teaching for candidates about to take their MRCP Part 2 PACES examination.
