Previous UCL Provost’s Spirit of Enterprise Award winners
Professor Deborah Gill, Director of the UCL Medical School, is a previous winner of the UCL Provost’s Spirit of Enterprise Award.
Deborah has been instrumental in establishing and expanding the education consultancy unit within the Medical School - harnessing school-wide expertise to offer services that enable, inform and support high-quality, scientifically rigorous and patient-focused education and training for doctors.
She’s ensured this consultancy focuses on partnerships, co-creating bespoke, sustainable education which is relevant to the community it serves. She’s made enterprise a core activity of the Medical School, creating an inclusive and sustainable consultancy model that enables the school to share its expertise with medical educators globally and in the UK, and provide substantial new income for the school.
"Winning the award was a huge honour, for me, but more importantly of course for my team who were instrumental in helping me to establish and expand the education consultancy unit within the Medical School. The award is a significant opportunity to highlight the absolute best practice and great ideas that can be achieved by working together. It also demonstrates that excellence at UCL can be achieved and acknowledged through a range of scholarly pursuits." Professor Deborah Gill, Director of the UCL Medical School
