When I started at Lincoln, I was forced to challenge my received wisdom, and that allowed me to dig deep into my own beliefs, while developing a welcoming tolerance for those of others.

Integrated Immunology and Clinical Medicine

I am originally from Jamaica and am a medical doctor currently completing my DPhil in Clinical Medicine under the tenure of the Jamaica Rhodes Scholarship. I graduated medical school as the top student in the Caribbean, during which I started a business at my hospital of study.  I matriculated at Lincoln College, and read for an MSc in Integrated Immunology prior to commencing a DPhil in Clinical Medicine. I see Oxford as the most significant phase thus far in my personal and professional development. When I started at Lincoln, I was forced to challenge my received wisdom, and that allowed me to dig deep into my own beliefs, while developing a welcoming tolerance for those of others. My research focuses on signalling pathways in Crohn’s disease, for which a publication is currently in manuscript. I intend to transition into postgraduate specialisation in Interventional Radiology. A sports enthusiast, I particularly enjoy boxing, playing football and watching American basketball. I have developed a passion for foreign languages, and see the breakdown of linguistic barriers in the Caribbean region as a critical step in boosting its global presence. In the long term, I intend to contribute towards the development of the Healthcare and Medical Tourism industries in Jamaica. I am grateful for my time at Lincoln.
