Education Description

Board chair of Masters programmes in child health and global health and development, ICH and UCL
With my superb team of colleagues, led by our education director, Mike Rowson, based at the Institute of Child Health, we have developed a new and highly successful Masters programme in Global Health and Development which provides a truly multi-faculty curriculum, and attracts 80 or more students per year. For twenty years I have been a major contributor to the Masters in international child health, initially as course director.
In 2006 we took over the highly successful BSc in international health for medical students, which had been pioneered by Professor John Yudkin. The course has remained popular and been replicated by five other UK universities.
I have made contributions to undergraduate and postgraduate courses at the universities of Oxford and Cambridge and ten other British universities or medical schools, Trinity CollegeDublin, Johns Hopkins University, Swiss Tropical Medicine Institute, University of Lund (Sweden), Kathmandu Medical College (Nepal), Dhaka Medical College(India), and Ibrahim Medical College (Bangladesh).

Guest plenary lectures or keynote talks for numerous Government departments, international charities, academic and medical conferences throughout the world, including in Bangladesh, Germany, India, Malawi, Nepal, Netherlands, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Tanzania, USA, Yemen.
