Projects per year
My research interests focus on selection, curricula and support through medical school, and the implications this has for workforce distribution especially to rural and underserved areas.
My role is focussed on the evaluation of the ScotGEM programme and research into related areas - generalism, rural medicine and innovative curricula.
