Amelia Van Manen

Hello, I’m Amelia, an anaesthetics registrar working in Oxford. Prior to my medical degree I was a medical anthropologist with a research interest in healthcare culture and organisational power dynamics. I am passionate about improving our experience of being anaesthetic trainees with education and research being key themes in this. I am currently a research fellow and undertaking a masters in medical education at Cambridge. As education lead my goal is to develop RAFT resources to support all of the TRNs, and enable early career anaesthetists to meet the curriculum requirements for research in a way that is interesting and empowering.
