Dr Pawlikowska joined WMS in 2003 from University College, London where she had been the Head of The International Unit and a Senior Tutor in The Open Learning Unit (developing and delivering on a web-based MSc in Primary Care). She was also part of The European Consortium for Primary Care (ECPC, an academic grouping of two leading departments of primary care from a number of western EU countries) and for many years Dr. Pawlikowska led the input from UCL into EUPHARE and World Bank projects that supported the development of primary care in a variety of countries.

At WMS her interests lie in medical education and supporting students through e-learning. She teaches communication and consultation skills to under-graduates and post-graduates, and facilitates consultants’ workshops on this subject. She is exploring new ways to deliver these courses to enhance learning outcomes, and to support meaningful development of these key skills throughout a professional’s career.

In addition her international work in medical education and research provides an opportunity to share experience and learn from diverse primary care environments.
