"My name is Daniel Crowfoot and I work as an Honorary Clinical Lecturer in the School of Medicine under the supervision of Dr Vibhore Prasad. This forms part of a GP Fellowship which consists of clinical work as a salaried GP, work as an Honorary Clinical Lecturer and working towards obtaining a Masters in Medical Education. The qualification and work at the University is funded by Health Education East Midlands.
Since coming into post in August 2015 my primary area of focus has been leading on a consultation in change management with aims to improve student and GP tutor satisfaction through the introduction of minor changes in the Community Follow Up (CFU) module. I have presented my work as an oral presentation at the Regional Trent Society of Academic Primary Care (SAPC) meeting and as an academic poster at the National SAPC Dublin Conference.
My work has also involved leading within CFU module on curriculum mapping, with aims to show that the CFU demonstrate constructive alignment and also how it links into the General Medical Council’s (GMC’s) ‘Outcomes for Graduates’ statements and the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) curriculum.
I am currently supervising a CFU medical student who is undertaking a CFU Studentship on developing a social media policy for CFU by using the policies currently in place at the University and the RCGP Social Media Highway Code and developing a policy that is relevant to the new developments in social media.
Aside from the above I also have a teaching responsibility in the School of Medicine and I have been involved in small group teaching in CFU, final year Advanced Clinical Experience primary care placements and also as an OSCE examiner for medical student finals.
The Primary Care Fellowship has given me an opportunity to expand an area of interest whilst maintaining a clinical work commitment and it has provided me with opportunities that would not be open to me otherwise."
