Biography

Dr. Maureen Kelly is a lecturer in General Practice with the Medical School, NUI Galway and Assistant Programme Director of the Western Training Programme in General Practice, HSE West.

She teaches at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and has a special interest in medical education, teaching and assessing communication skills, professionalism and community engagement.  She contributes significantly to the Fourth Year undergraduate teaching programme and for many years directed the GP module.   She delivers an innovative Special Study Module, for First Year Medical Students teaching Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation to national school children.  This programme operates closely with the University’s Community Knowledge Initiative and the ABC for Life programme Queen’s University, Belfast.  A unique feature of this module is that the teaching is conducted through Irish in Gaeltacht national schools and Gael Scoileanna.  In keeping with her current research interest in medical student selection she has recently established Clár Ambasadóireachta Scoil an Leighis, an outreach programme aimed at encouraging and supporting Gaeltacht secondary students to consider a career in medicine. 

She is committed to the concept of capacity building in academic General Practice (GP).  She leads the Academic Module in General Practice-a mentorship and supervision programme for GP registrars who express an interest in GP education or research.  Each year she organises and teaches at a week end educational meeting, Teachers in General Practice, where busy GP teachers can network and learn about up to date methods for teaching medical students and doctors training in General Practice.  Over the years she has contributed to faculty development through delivering workshops at the Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, the Galway Alliance of Medical Educators and through the production of a training CdROM for examiners in the Medical School. 

 She is a Fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners and a member of the Irish College of General Practitioners, the Association for the Study of Medical Education, the Association for Medical Education in Europe, National Association of Programme Directors, and Medical Council Register of Medical Specialists (General Practice).  

Research Interests

Maureen's primary research interests are in the field of medical education.  The focus of her recent PhD in Medical Education was the validity of the Health Professions Admission Test Ireland and Multiple Mini Interviews as selection tools for undergraduate medical students. Her expertise in medical student selection is internationally recognised: she is a regular presenter at medical education conferences, collaborates with leading selection experts in the UK and is a member of the International Network for Researchers in Selection into Healthcare. She is an Associate Editor with BMC Medical Education and reviewer for several of the highest impact medical education journals.  Her Masters in Medical Education, Dundee evaluated the impact of a new undergraduate communication skills teaching programme.  She has published a practical guide for teaching communication skills. She has researched how professional attitudes can be taught and assessed at undergraduate level.  She has supervised research theses on both the Masters in Primary Care and Masters in Clinical Education programmes.  She set up and delivers a taught module on Research Methods to Third Year GP Trainees and supervises their research projects each year on a variety of GP related topics.
