Biography

Sam has been a researcher and educator in medical education for almost twenty years, with a particular interest in general practice education. She is Programme Lead for the MA Medical Education and Convenor for the University's Medical Education Research Centre​​. 

As part of the tutor team on the MA Medical Education and Postgraduate Certificate courses (for appraisers, hospital educators and trainers), she supports the professional development of medical educators, trainers and appraisers through academic enquiry into practice. She has been teaching at the University of Winchester on the MA Education course since 2007.

Alongside her university role, she works with the GP Education Unit, Southampton supporting research into GP education with trainees, programme directors and associate deans. In addition to her research interests, she is a reviewer for a number of leading medical education journals.

Sam completed her PhD at the University of Winchester in 1998. Her thesis Enlightenment Returns to Myth: Factors influencing the Investigation of Racist Attitudes Exhibited by Primary School Children presented an immanent critique of the construction of 'race' in psychological research with children, and a philosophical inquiry into the theoretical reconstruction of 'race' in educational policy-making.
