Research Interests

Research interests currently focus on medical education.


One area of research looks at the Learning Environment of students on their GP placement. This research is based on 177 GP practices in Ireland, utilizing CSO data to give demographics including deprivation indices for each ¿practice area¿. It was presented as a poster at AUDGPI Belfast April 2015, and as an oral presentation at SAPC in Oxford July 2015.


The second involves the development of teaching modality within our department, which utilises patient management software system to create virtual patients for medical students in one of our existing module. An evaluation of this is in progress and will be presented as a poster at SAPC in Dublin July 2016 (paper pending).
