What I do: Within the SAPC early careers group I lead on promoting and supporting careers for GPs in combined clincal and academic training.  This work, getting in and getting on, looks to develop resources that support those who are either considering applying for combined training or are already in combined triaining and thinking about their next steps.

Areas of interest: My current research contributes to efforts aimed at preventing the growing burden of chronic disease. This involves translating epidemiological knowledge into preventive action, and evaluating the effectiveness of different preventive approaches.

Combined clinical and academic training programmes invest in people early in their career who can implement their acquired skills throughout the major part of their career. The valuable translation from practice to research and vice versa becomes a quality inherent in clinician researchers who have finished their combined program. Whilst combined research training in General Practice has developed strongly and consistently over the last decade, compared to other specialities, research capacity remains relatively modest especially at the doctoral level and post-doctoral level.
