Job Title:
Academic Clinical Fellow and Specialty Registrar in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Date joined Inhanse:
August 2016


What Do I Do:
75% of my time I work as a higher surgical trainee in the subspecialty of Oral and Maxillofacial surgery. This specialty requires medical and dental qualifications (So I spent 10 years studying!), and many years working as a doctor before you can even start the higher surgical training!

The specialty covers cancer of the mouth, jaws, face and neck, facial trauma, life-threatening facial infections, and inherited or acquired facial deformity, to name but part of the scope of this fascinating specialty! More information on the specialty can be found at http://www.baoms.org.uk/What_is_Oral_and_Maxillofacial_Surgery

 

The other 25% of my time is spent at InHANSE researching mouth cancer, specifically looking at how patients should be treated if their mouth cancer comes back after their first treatment. I am very new to the institute and this project, so watch this space for developments as my research progresses!

Research Interests:
[As above, I guess...]

Being an eternal student!

Common remark:
