Therapeutic Radiographer and Course Leader for BSc.(Hons) Radiotherapy & Oncology at University of Suffolk.
Zoe qualified as therapeutic radiographer in 2015, having made the decision to retrain, previously working with in the Arts and marketing. During her time as a treatment radiographer, she regularly organised education events for the radiotherapy team. The opportunity to move into an academic role came in 2018 and Zoe is now Course Leader for the Radiotherapy and Oncology undergraduate programme at University of Suffolk. As a lecturer, she works hard to ensure the future generation of therapeutic radiographers are trained and prepared to deliver the best standard of patient centred care. Working closely with placement partners at NHS Trusts in Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire, Zoe and her team ensure the degree is meeting the requirements of clinical practice and continues to be up to date. Zoe is also a STEM ambassador in Suffolk and regularly delivers course talks and lessons at schools within the GCSE, A level and BTEC science subjects, as part of ongoing outreach work for the university. For the past eighteen months Zoe has also been involved with the Strategic Interventions in Higher Education Disciplines (SIHED), which is a national project to address the decline in applications for degree programmes in therapeutic radiography and three other allied health disciplines.
