I completed my undergraduate MPharm at Aston in 2005, and went on to complete my pre-registration training at University Hospitals Birmingham. Having completed a varied pre-registration year in general medicine, mental health and paediatrics, I returned to Aston to do my Clinical Diploma progressing onto an MSc in Clinical Pharmacy.
I have since completed my MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice, and work part time at Aston as a clinical fellow, and in primary care as an Advanced Clinical Practitioner.
I have been in post as module co-ordinator of PH3611 (Applied Clinical Skills and Pharmacy Based Services). I have delivered teaching to all four years of the undergraduate programme. Working in primary care, I have introduced primary care placements to Aston’s MPharm for year 2 and 3 students. I have worked on incorporating inter-professional learning to the undergraduate degree with other disciplines and introduced a range of student engagement activities.
