I employ an active approach to learning, utilising interactive atlases, dissection videos and other media within my teaching. I ensure that my students grasp the 3D nature of gross anatomy by gradually building up the regions of interest, and utilise my physiotherapy and medical knowledge to incorporate clinically meaningful information.
I have a First-class degree in Anatomical Sciences, a Masters degree in Physiotherapy, and a PhD in Biomedical Sciences. I have been an anatomy demonstrator at the University of Leeds for four years, involving over 600 hours of gross anatomy teaching via whole body cadaveric dissection, prosections, surface anatomy, and clinically orientated tutorials to medical and other biomedical science students.
