Personal profile


I work as a senior lecturer in the department of Therapeutics and Pharmacology. My specialist interest is in cardiovascular pharmacology, in particular the assessment and management of hypertension and cardiovascular risk. My other main interest lies in undergraduate and postgraduate medical education.


I coordinate and deliver the 1st, 2nd and 3rd year undergraduate clinical medical attachments at the Belfast City Hospital and have recently taken up the coordination and setting up of the final year multiple choice paper. Along with my collleagues here in the Department of Therapeutics, we deliver the Pharmacology components of the medical and dental courses. I also coordinate and teach a spring taught Student Selected Component entitled 'Acute Poisoning' that accommodates 15-20 students each year with very positive feedback.

From a postgraduate education aspect, until recently I was the royal college tutor for the Belfast city Hospital and I am currently one of the educational supervisors for core medical training on this site and as a fellow of the royal college of physicians Edinburgh I regularly volunteer as a PACEs examiner.
