Steve is a general practitioner (GP) by training who has a passion for teaching. After establishing an academic unit at Monash University in healthcare for people with developmental disabilities in the 90’s, Steve directed the vocational training program for general practitioners before coming to the University of Melbourne in 2002. Since then, he has been involved in developing and leading the Melbourne MD and the medical school’s EXCITE program of clinical teacher training courses. As the name suggests, “medical education” sits at the interface of two distinctive disciplines and Steve is enthusiastic about exchanging insights on excellent teaching with colleagues throughout the University.
