I graduated from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland in 2005 with a degree in medicine and an honorary bachelors in obstetrics, subsequently training in Obstetrics & Gynaecology through The Rotunda scheme and obtaining Membership into the Irish college for the specialty.
During my time in one of the busiest maternity units in Europe, I worked towards proficiency in advanced labour ward management, as well as being attached to the unit's fertility and minimal access gynae-endoscopy team.
I became interested in the input of clinicians to managers when assigned to a peripheral early pregnancy unit, and conducted a full overhaul and introduction of a more patient-centric and efficient pathway as part of my Executive Leadership in Healthcare degree with Cornell.
I joined Oxford University's Nuffield Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology in 2014, where I am Lead Developer of a multilingual integrated online patient information offering that targets vulnerable communities, enabling them to autonomously engage with our healthcare system. The impetus for this project came from the latest MBRRACE-UK reports regarding patient outcomes in minority communities, and was the focus of my platform as National Women's Health Lead for the Muslim Doctor's Association. I am also contributing to a separate individualised but universal patient interface offering in fertility, working with Prof.'s Stephen Kennedy and Jose Villar. These projects tie in with my interest and volunteer work in Global Maternal Health.
