Laboratory Medicine Course Administrator
As Laboratory Medicine Course Administrator, I am responsible for the organisation of laboratory medicine teaching for 4th Year undergraduate and 2nd Year graduate entry medical students which runs annually between October-December as part of the 2nd Bachelor of Medicine degree course at the University of Oxford. I manage the provision and timetabling of all lectures, small group teaching sessions and autopsy demonstrations (approximately 650 teaching sessions in total) as well as the end of course examinations.
I work alongside the Course Director, Dr Deborah Hay, the Course Assistant, Stacey Da Silva, and the five subject coordinators for clinical biochemistry, haematology, histopathology, immunology and microbiology and infectious diseases. I liaise with clinicians and University staff to ensure the smooth and efficient delivery of the course and examinations.
I originally studied Business & Finance at Sheffield and first joined the University of Oxford in 1990 as PA to Professor Kevin Gatter, (Honorary Consultant HistopathoIogist and Head of Department). After 5 years as database manager for a small company making monoclonal antibodies I returned to the University to join the Laboratory Medicine team as Course Administrator in 2003.
