A graduate of the UCO, Samantha is Course Leader for the Postgraduate Certificate in Specialist Paediatric Osteopathic Practice.

Samantha was a member of UCO clinic faculty for eight years before stepping into the course leader role so knows first-hand some of the challenges that students face on their journey to becoming an osteopath. 

As an active member of faculty and the wider osteopathic community, Samantha sits on several UCO committees and is part the General Osteopathic Council steering group looking at minimum standards in paediatric practice. Her specialist area is paediatrics and she continues to lecture in this subject both in the UK and Europe, delivering an evidence-based approach to both undergraduate and postgraduate students.

She is an enthusiastic senior member of staff who, when not at the university, heads up The Jamii Project, a social enterprise working with young people not in education, employment or training. Her passion is to see osteopathy recognised in remote areas of the world, so she regularly works alongside a UK medical team in Burma with displaced indigenous people.

Samantha is looking forward to welcoming you to the UCO.
