Dr Adam Bonfield

Clinical Simulation Fellow Honorary Lecturer in Simulation


I am a paediatric trainee in the East Midlands with an interest in medical education. My area of expertise centres around medical simulation with particular emphasis on debriefing and video. Currently I help oversee the vision of simulation-based education for Leicester Medical School and develop content to realise this for the students.


My specialist subject is debriefing in simulation and how we can maximise the learning students can take from these experiences. I held an Academic Clinical Fellowship in Medical Education with NIHR during which I completed a Masters in Medical Education through the University of Nottingham.
