Jamie Coleman was born and brought up in the West Midlands. He followed his father, who was an alumnus of the University of Birmingham, to study medicine from 1994-1999. Having worked in many of the teaching hospitals in the Birmingham Area, Jamie developed an early interest in medical education and started as a personal tutor at the medical school in 2003.
During his registrar training he was an honorary lecturer in the College of Medical and Dental Sciences and became heavily involved in educational development across various years of the MBChB course. From 2003-2008 Jamie completed both his MD and MA Medical Education simultaneously. He took up an honorary consultant post in late 2008 and then worked for 18 months as a locum consultant at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust before obtaining a competitive HEFCE-funded Senior Lecturership.
Jamie has previously worked on a national basis for the National Programme for Information Technology and now is the clinical lead at UHBFT for electronic prescribing. Much of his research interests revolve around elements of prescribing safety and the analysis of routinely collected prescription data from both primary and secondary care.
