Personal profile

Biography

Dr Amy Wong joined Norwich Medical School as an Associate Professor in Medical Education in February 2023. She is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (Advance HE).

In 2019, Amy relocated to Northern Ireland (Belfast) from Australia (Brisbane) after completing her PhD study exploring the impact of providing assessors with feedback on enhancing the consistency of their judgements of student performance in high-stakes medical OSCEs at The University of Queensland (UQ). Amy took the Research Fellow post (2019-2021) and subsequently, a Lecturer post (2022-2023) with the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Queen’s University Belfast (QUB). In 2022, Amy was appointed as one of the Evidence Synthesis Ireland (ESI) Fellows.

Collaborating with a team of interdisciplinary educators and clinical practitioners, Amy designed a 12-week ‘Transforming Practice through Evidence’ module for the newly commissioned MSc in Advanced Nursing Practice (ANP) (Critical Care) at QUB which was the first being offered in Northern Ireland in 2022.

Supported by the funding of the Medical Education Developing Scholarship (2021/2022) awarded by the Association for the Study of Medical Education (ASME), Amy led an interdisciplinary collaboration with colleagues in Nursing, Medicine and Pharmacy across the UK to co-design an assessor support toolkit to facilitate the sharing of assessment expertise across health professions education disciplines.

Before relocating from Australia, Amy worked at UQ for nearly 12 years. She was the Applied Learning Analyst at the Institute for Teaching and Learning Innovation managing the UQ-wide quality assurance process and supporting staff and students to make evidence-informed decisions in teaching and learning. She also worked at the UQ Medical School managing the evaluations and quality assurance activities in learning, teaching and assessment for both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.
