Jayne Kavanagh wins Provost’s Award for Public Engagement

Dr Jayne Kavanagh  is responsible for the ethics and law programme at UCLMS. She is also lead for the Medical School’s widening participation project, Target Medicine.

Jayne is completely committed to involving members of the public in her work in exciting innovative ways. She does this not just to enhance learning for the 1,700 medical students who she is responsible for teaching ethics and law to, but also because of a deep-seated desire to improve the lives of people, particularly women, experiencing various difficulties.

Jayne K Provost's AwardShe was nominated for this award for her leading role in creating and running the Beacon-funded 2013/14 project ‘Stories from the soul: doctors’ choices, women’s lives’ – although she also involves the public in her work in many other ways.

‘Stories from the soul’ includes three evenings of storytelling music, and discussion that bring together healthcare providers with members of the public to explore how doctors’ decisions affect women’s lives.

Public engagement is fundamental to how Jayne approaches her role at UCL. Even before “public engagement” became something that universities prioritised, involving non-academics in improving the quality of her teaching has always been key to her approach.
