Research

I have three main areas of research interest.

The first is to do with Coeliac Disease and how well we are doing in New Zealand with regards to recognising and managing this condition. A related topic of interest is the gluten-free diet and its current popularity.

My second area of research interest is in the assessment of medical students, particularly by way of OSCEs, and variables which may impact on the reliability of this assessment tool.

Thirdly I am involved in projects examining the emerging clinical reasoning skills of medical students.
