• Medical Humanities

Jeff has worked with The University of Exeter Medical School, Plymouth University Peninsula School of Medicine and Dentistry and The University of Bristol Medical School to deliver medical humanities workshops, clinical skills training and communications skills courses.

His popular drama based courses ‘Are You Having a Laugh?’ and ‘Improv Your Practice’ have helped medical and dental students to develop their communications and presentation skills, increase self confidence, develop teamworking abilities and become more creative in their thinking whilst having a lot of fun!

Jeff is currently collaborating with other arts practitioners at Plymouth University Peninsula School of Medicine and Dentistry to write a text book on medical humanities and has a dedicated website providing arts and humanities resources for the healthcare sector www.ah-ha.org.uk

‘I just wanted to thank you again……I was thinking about how much my confidence has improved from being the quiet one who NEVER said anything or spoke out (and as result didn’t have many friends), to being able to give speeches, talk with patients and even use humour with patients! I’ve also managed to make some more friends, and move on in life by realising how many fears were holding me back. I really feel I have grown and I just had to say a huge thank you.’

‘I just wanted to tell you how amazing this year has been and how wonderful your course is! You are a fantastic tutor – encouraging, kind and honest and it’s been so great working with you. Thank you for all your guidance this year. How sad the 4th year would have been without you and your course!’
