Dr Colin Melville

Formerly at Lancaster University


Colin Melville joined Lancaster Medical School as Head of Medical Education in April 2015.  He has been involved in postgraduate and undergraduate medical education since 2001.

Initially training in anaesthesia, he took up a clinical post in Intensive Care Medicine in Hull in 1996. During that time he held a number of medical managerial roles until the early 2000s when he focussed on delivering and leading on medical education. He was responsible for the introduction of the Foundation Training Programme for the North Yorkshire East Coast Foundation School in 2005, incorporating primary care and academic training opportunities from 2007.  During that time he became involved in setting up a study of patients as teachers.

In 2007, he assisted in the development of the final year curriculum for HYMS (Hull York Medical School) going on to lead the clinical skills team, and Phase 3 of the programme in 2010. From 2011 until shortly before his move to Warwick he was Interim Undergraduate Dean at HYMS.

Whilst at Warwick Medical School he was responsible for the successful introduction of a revised graduate entry programme centred around case based learning.

He joins Lancaster at an exciting time of change for Lancaster Medical School as its course becomes independent from Liverpool.
