I am delighted to report that I have taken on new responsibilities in my work with Memorial University, Newfoundland (MUN) and I have been promoted to Visiting Professor.
I was at MUN earlier this month for the launch of the new MD curriculum. It was exhilarating to meet the new cohort of learners, the Class of 2017, and to participate in the case studies/problem based learning which have significant public health components. The Faculty of Medicine and the wider society there are highly supportive of medical education and very enthusiastic.
I have also taken on a specific project concerning an application for recognition of excellence in social accountability by the Faculty of Medicine which is another indicator of their support for medical education.
It is a good time to celebrate the first anniversary of my departure from employment in Wales and to reflect on the continuous progress in my medical education career through the work at MUN, with the Centre for Medical Education, Dundee University, and with the seven UK veterinary schools.
