Ben Clyde


Coordinator for Patient Involvement in Medical Education

My background is in genetics and medical education.

I am responsible for developing and supporting opportunities across Oxford University Medical School for lay people to become involved in medical education. In principle, there are many stages at which patients and members of the public can participate, from the selection of medical students through curriculum development, teaching and examining to governance and quality assurance. However, patients have historically not been well integrated into these areas. My role is to enable patients and other lay people to take a fuller part by facilitating the necessary practical and cultural changes.

Until September 2018 I am also acting coordinator for patient and public involvement for the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre, covering maternity leave for Polly Kerr.
