Dr Tristan Price

Lecturer in Clinical Education

Peninsula Medical School (Faculty of Health)

I am currently working as Lecturer in Clinical Education for the Faculty of Health: Medicine, Dentistry and Human Sciences. I teach on both the face to face and the online pathways for the MClinEd programme and I am the module lead for the MSc Dissertations for the taught postgraduate programmes. 

I am also currently a research fellow on the RESTORE project within CAMERA. RESTORE is an NIHR funded realist review of remediation seeking to ascertain why, how, in what contexts, for whom and to what extent remediation programmes for practising doctors work to restore patient safety.


I completed my PhD in International Relations at Aberystwyth University in 2011. From there I pursued a career in education, completing a PGCE in Secondary History and teaching History and Law at GCSE and A-Level for three years. Prior to this I obtained a BSc (Hons) in Politics with International Relations from Plymouth University and an MSc (ECON) in Security Studies from Aberystwyth University. 

In addition to my work as a Research Fellow at Plymouth University I also work as an Associate Lecturer for the Open University in International Relations and Development.
