John Hansen-Brevetti manages family planning centre N EW YORKER, JOHN Hansen-Brevetti, 32, graduated with a BSc Nursing from QMU in 2014. He said: “After I graduated from QMU, I went on to study Health, Community and Development at the London School of Economics and Political Science. After receiving my master’s degree, I started working as a Registered Nurse with Marie Stopes International (MSI). I was promoted to Clinical Team Leader, and again to Clinical Operations Manager for one of MSI’s largest UK clinics. “I now oversee a team of 12 nurses and six health care assistants, and manage the day-to-day operations of a busy family planning centre in London. I’ve thought about one day undertaking a PhD in nursing, but for the moment I’ve got my hands full!” ❒ Aimie progresses podiatry career in rheumatic and musculoskeletal medicine A IMIE PATIENCE, from Inverness, graduated with a BSc (Hons) Podiatry in 2016. Since leaving QMU’s she’s completed an eight- week research internship in Leeds with Arthritis Research UK, where she helped facilitate on-going research into rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases. Amie said: “I’ve now been appointed as a Clinical Trials Associate within the Leeds Institute of Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Medicine. My main duties are recruiting patients into clinical trials, providing practical podiatry support when necessary and collecting, analysing and publishing work I’m involved in. “In the near future I hope to apply for a clinical academic doctorate through the National Institute of Health Research. I would conduct PhD research and develop my clinical skills part-time to ultimately achieve a fully integrated clinical academic role within rheumatic and musculoskeletal disease research.” Amie concluded: “I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for the brilliant teaching and ongoing mentorship I’ve received from the staff at QMU.” ❒ QMYOU / Where are you now? 27
