Research Interests

My current research interests are concerned with the use of experiential learning strategies with the aim of developing clinical competencies. In particular I am keen to pursue my interests in simulation, problem based learning and role-play. Ultimately I am aiming to develop an understanding through research of the impact of these strategies on clinical practice. I hope to develop this interest to PHD level.
