Dr Anne Swift
- BSLM Director of Public Health
Anne graduated from Leicester in 2001. Following experience in histopathology, GP and emergency medicine she realised that her real passion lay in preventative medicine and influencing wider systems. She trained in public health medicine in the East of England, winning the Michael O’Brien prize for best performance in the Part A membership exam in 2010 and achieving her CCT in 2015. During training she was fortunate to study public health at Master’s level at Cambridge. She also developed a strong interest in medical education, and is undertaking a Masters in Clinical Education at the University of East Anglia.
Anne’s main role is directing the content and delivery of the public health curriculum at the University of Cambridge Clinical School. Alongside this work she is also the Training Programme Director for the north zone of the EoE public health training programme. Her passion for preventative medicine and improving healthcare remains and is the driver for her work in education; not every medical student will be interested in public health and prevention, but if the attitudes of all medical students can shift – just a little – in favour of prevention, the overall effect will be huge. A population health approach to public health education!
Originally from Cardiff, Anne lives with her young family in Norfolk and enjoys escaping to the North Norfolk coast whenever possible.
