Marion Lynch
on behalf of Health Education England

For the past ten years Marion has been involved in GP education, both as Programme Director for VTS and Associate Dean for CPD. Her doctorate in Medical Education has highlighted new ways of learning for GP trainees. These go beyond the curriculum and towards education for a holistic approach in primary care. This module has arisen from these studies and others looking at what patients want from their GP. When not engaged in education she likes to climb mountains and sail the seas, not always successfully.
