Dr Shameq Sayeed

Director of the International Partnership (China)


"I started my medical studies at the University of Oxford in 2001. On graduation and after initial clinical training I spent two years studying towards an MSc (Epidemiology) at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. This was followed by an Academic Clinical Fellowship in General Practice with a particular interest in global health primary care and family medicine. I have been a clinical tutor to medical students in Oxford over the last ten years and during this time completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education for which I was awarded a Senior Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. I moved to the University of Leicester Medical School in 2020 as a Senior Clinical Educator and am currently a Clinical Associate Professor and Director of the International Partnership with CQMU. In addition to working with colleagues in Leicester in developing and delivering teaching (primary care MSc Clinical Education) I also work closely with students and staff towards ensuring a supportive and inclusive environment within the School."


"Whilst studying towards my MSc I also worked as a Clinical Research Fellow in the Cancer Epidemiology Unit in Oxford studying cancers in India and in ethnic minorities within the UK. During my Academic Clinical Fellowship my interests turned to global primary healthcare and I continue to work with colleagues in Palestine towards the development of family practice and primary care as a core part of the Ministry of Health's strategy towards universal health coverage."
