Having trained as a Doctor, and then as an Orthopaedic Surgeon in the UK, with various fellowships and opportunities studying abroad, it is apparent to me that we can do much to enhance the traditional medical environment for research, education and clinical practice. I have developed an interest in surgical simulation and my thesis explored the subject of embedding such technologies into virtual learning environments. I am driven by the will to build bridges between the basic sciences and the clinical environment which only exists as it does today because of the transfer of technologies. This is fundamental to how we develop both domains in this interdisciplinary era. The next phase of the work will be to strengthen these links by both deepening the understanding on both sides and broadening the experience of stakeholders who will manage the shared information in different ways with different needs and abilities.
