I was born and brought up in Belfast during the peaceful 50s, then studied medicine at Queen’s University during the turbulent late 60s and early 70s. Towards the end of the course I was very impressed with the work (and lifestyle) of a rural GP with whom I did an attachment and so, after my JHO year, I started a 2 year GP rotation. As it happened the first 6 months was in paediatrics and I quickly realised that this was the branch of medicine I wanted to be part of, particularly the care of the critically ill child and neonate which was in the early stages of a dramatic development during the period I was in training. As part of this training I secured a research fellowship in neonatal cardiorespiratory investigation using computerised heart rate variability techniques, and was awarded my MD (Hons) in 1980.
I then went to the paediatric intensive care unit at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto for 1 year as a senior fellow with both clinical and research content, and was invited to stay on for a second year as a staff member. For a combination of professional and family reasons my wife Heather and I (with our 2 small children) then decided to return to N. Ireland, where I was appointed in 1982 to a consultant paediatric post in Ballymena, joining a single handed colleague and between us providing services (including neonatal intensive care) for children across the whole Northern part of the province.
As a result of my continued interests in research and education I subsequently applied for and was appointed Senior Lecturer in Child Health at QUB, while continuing my clinical practice. I retired from academic and clinical practice at the end of 2010.
Having undertaken a number of roles with the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, N. Ireland Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety, and as Trust Medical Director, I then was a member of the General Medical Council from 2003 to 2012. During this period I chaired the Postgraduate Board from its inception in 2010 following the merger with the UK Postgraduate Medical Education and Training Board (of which I had been a member throughout its existence, and chairman of its Training Committee). Prior to this I had chaired the GMC Standards and Ethics Committee from 2005 to 2008.
In addition to my College Fellowships, in 2012 I was delighted to receive an honorary Fellowship of the Academy of Medical Educators. I remain involved in the co-ordination and development of medical education and training throughout the UK as a member of the Expert Advisory Group to the Shape of Training review, and have recently been appointed as a non-executive Board member of the Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority (RQIA - the N. Ireland systems regulator for its integrated health and social care).
Together with our church commitments my wife and I enjoy the opportunities afforded to be involved with the growth and development of our 5 grandchildren with their parents who have rather inconveniently chosen to live at scattered locations across the UK and Ireland.
Born in 1965, the youngest of 3 girls, I was educated at Parsons Green Primary School and Portobello High School, both Edinburgh. On leaving school, I worked predominantly in the insurance industry (from 1982- 1992). I then became a medical secretary in the Department of Haematology at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh. A couple of years later, I moved to the Special Health Board, Scottish Council for Postgraduate Medical and Dental Education (SCPMDE). In 1999 I joined ASME as a clerical officer and moved through the ranks as the years progressed. I completed an Open University degree in Business Studies in 2006, having studied while working full time for ASME.
I took on the role as Chief Executive Officer in August 2010.
Graduating with a PhD in 1993 and an MSc in 1994, I worked as an occupational psychologist until 1997 when I obtained a Clinical Psychology training post at the University of Edinburgh. I worked for the NHS as a Clinical Psychologist in adult mental health initially then Liaison Psychiatry for many years, while at the same time developing a portfolio of research and teaching interests.
I led Clinical Communication on the Aberdeen MBChB and had an early national role heading up the Scottish Doctor Communication Skills Standard Setting Sub-group. I maintain input into the everyday activities of the medical programme via leadership of the first three years of community medicine teaching and learning, and as a member of the MBChB Management Group. I also had an active role in setting up the new dental degree programme at Aberdeen.
For the last 10 years, I have developed a program of research about assessment and performance in medical education, with particular interest in identifying and addressing underperformance. I maintain some clinical research interests, particularly in terms of the associations between mental health and chronic disease (mostly respiratory disease) management. My experience in this area is in complex (educational) interventions.
I have published nearly 100 articles across a broad range of peer-reviewed journals plus books, book chapters, teaching and research guides. I have been commissioned by the GMC to produce work on selection and widening access to medicine and I am currently working with the MSC to carry out further work on widening access to medicine.I am Professor of Medical Education at the University of Aberdeen; former Chair of ASME's Education Research Group; and a member of the Association for the Study of Medical Education, Europe (AMEE) International Research Board. I am Associate Editor for The Clinical Teacher and was previously Section Editor (Assessment and Evaluation) for BMC Medical Education. I took up the role of Chair of Council, ASME, in July 2013.
