Teaching

In recent years, BSMS has consistently ranked amongst the top medical schools in the UK for the quality of its teaching.  It has a vibrant and dynamic environment that encourages and motivates students to learn about human physiology, disease and clinical medicine.  Dr Chevassut is the lead teacher on Blood Physiology course in year 1 (Heart, Lungs and Blood, Module 103), Cancer Biology course in year 3 (Scientific Basis of Medicine, Module 302) and Clinical Haematology in year 4 (Specialist Rotations, Module 402).  Dr Chevassut has twice been the runner-up best teacher on the BMBS course and recently received a University of Sussex Award for Excellence in Teaching.

Dr Chevassut is also the Director of Clinical Academic Training for BSMS, working closely with colleagues at Health Education Kent, Surrey and Sussex (HEKSS) and Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals Trust (BSUHT) to oversee the management of the highly successful Brighton Integrated Academic Training (IAT) Programme that comprises Academic Foundation Trainees and NIHR Academic Clinical Fellows and Lecturers.  He has initiated the MRes research programme at BSMS and supervised numerous students undertaking BSc, Masters, and PhD degrees as well as mentoring IRP students and haematology AFP, ACF and SpR trainees.
