Jordan Fletcher, Education and Trainee representative
My medical education MEd degree has given me a strong understanding of educational theory. As a leadership fellow, I set up and ran the Yorkshire and Humber deanery advanced cadaveric simulation programme CADSIM. I hope to build on the fantastic Duke’s educational programme and aim to 1) expand video-based content 2) produce FRCS podcast episodes 3) establish a digital library of anatomical specimens using 3D photogrammetry and 4) offer a wider range of cadaveric training courses.
I’m an ST5 in the West Midlands deanery. I graduated from University of Birmingham in 2011. I have a keen interest in education and training and particularly in simulation training. I was Dukes’ E and T rep for 2 years and now look forward to driving training standards forward in collaboration with ASiT.
