Dr Chris Adcock is a Consultant Physician in Acute Medicine at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, as well as Training Programme Director for Acute Internal Medicine higher specialty training in the East of England. He has clinical experience of providing healthcare on aircraft and in austere environments as an NHS and RAF Consultant. He teaches on Preparing for Patients B, Clinical Reasoning, and Clinical Communication Skills.
Chris is a clinician and educator with a keen focus on effective communication, collaboration, and partnership with patients and learners alike.

His teaching encompasses communication skills, professionalism, clinical reasoning, and simulation for medical emergencies and cardiac arrest. Chris is always happy to talk to students in College about careers in medicine or the health professions, and is pleased to be part of the College tutor team.
