Dr Duncan Shrewsbury

Co-chair of SAPC and SAPC ASM 2023 Conference Chair

Biography from Duncan's profile page at Brighton and Sussex Medical School

Duncan is a Senior Lecturer in General Practice at Brighton and Sussex Medical School, where he leads GP teaching in years 1, 2 and 3 of the BM BS programme.

He has a background in teaching and research. Before starting work as a doctor, Duncan worked as an associate lecturer in A level biology in an adult education college, and has since taught at higher education. Much of Duncan's earlier work around student support and professional development centered around mentoring, which was recognised by a number of awards from the RCGP and HSJ. 

Duncan’s main area of research activity focuses on wellbeing, learning difficulties and disabilities in clinical education. For his PhD, he looked at dyslexia in doctors. He has, more recently, become involved in research around LGBT* health inequalities.

Duncan is passionate about general practice. When he was a trainee, he chaired the RCGP national trainees committee, and supported national recruitment initiatives as a trainee (there are still some cringe-worthy video clips posters floating about). He has also led the development of the RCGP's wellbeing strategy, and co-chaired the RCGP's newly established wellbeing committee for it's first year.

His role here at Brighton and Sussex Medical School will be to support the ongoing development and delivery of the General Practice component of the undergraduate medical programme. 

In 2021, Duncan was awarded the highest level of professional recognition from the Higher Education Academy – the Principal Fellow (PFHEA) status in recognition of a sustained and substantial impact from effective strategic leadership in higher education, resulting in changes of practice and improvements in quality.
