Layla Fattah


I hold a Masters Degree in Pharmacy from the Unviersity of Manchester, and for the last 15 years have practiced as a pharmacist in hospital, academic and educational sectors. In 2011 I successfully completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical Education (PGCert) and went on to complete a Masters in Clinical Education (MEd) in 2015, both at the University of Leeds. 

I am currently working for the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City.

What motivated me to undertake PhD study?

Completing my PGCert and MEd sparked my interest in education and educational research. I particularly enjoyed my MEd critical study, in which I explored  the outcomes of interprofessional education on community pharmacist and general practitioner (GP) relationships. This project gave me an interest in community pharmacy practice and the experiences of community pharmacy practice.

What makes me passionate about my subject?

My role as a pharmacist makes me particularly invested in exploring community pharmacy practice. I am particularly motivated by the potential impact of my findings on practice, policy and theory.
