Academic General Practitioner
Lichfield Grove Surgery and UCL
Dr Alena Chong initially trained as an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, before becoming a portfolio GP. Undergraduate medical education is a key interest as she organises the final year GP Assistantship Course at UCL Medical School. Recently, she was presented with The UCL Excellence in Medical Education Award and The Miriam Friedman Ben David New Educator Award by the Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE), for her innovative student-centred teaching ideas.
As a NICE Fellow, she intends to develop a research portfolio to complement her current GP and teaching roles. Her 3 year project is TONIC: The translation of NICE guidelines into care. As millions of pounds are spent on oral glucose control medicines, her focal question is: Do GPs take NICE guidance for prescribing oral glucose control medicines into account when exercising their clinical judgment? By developing innovative educational partnerships with community-based NHS healthcare professionals, this TONIC for diabetes mellitus aims to benefit individuals and populations.
