Olivia is a Health Management Masters student at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Olivia is an MD from the UK completing her residency in Academic General Practice, combining clinical medicine with research into resilience and well-being in the medical workforce. Olivia has a longstanding interest in quality and safety and aspires to hold a national leadership position alongside clinical practice, to influence the delivery of health care in the UK to improve quality and value. As a junior doctor Olivia co-founded a Quality Improvement Academy in her Hospital, which links junior doctors to senior clinicians and managers to achieve change through quality improvement projects. In 2014-15 Olivia completed the National Medical Director Clinical Fellow Scheme as a clinical fellow to Professor Sir Bruce Keogh, the NHS Medical Director. In this role she gained understanding of the wider economic, societal and political influences on healthcare, and began to develop skills in leadership, management and policy. Through her experience at Harvard she hopes to develop the skills, knowledge and expertise needed to drive innovation and lead large-scale transformational change in healthcare. Outside of medicine Olivia enjoys travelling and is loving her year living in Boston, especially the snow!
