Dr Rowan Burnstein is a Consultant in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care. She qualified from the University of Sydney, and completed her clinical training on the Specialist Training Program in the East of England. She undertook her PhD at the University of Cambridge during this period. In addition to her clinical roles she is also currently Head of School of Anaesthesia, and Associate Dean, at Health Education England, East of England, and Director of Studies and Graduate Tutor at Magdalene College Cambridge.
Her current research is underpinned by an interest in understanding how systems impact clinical settings, particularly in the context of acute trauma. She has a particular interest in this in low income settings, currently working with groups in Myanmar as Clinical lead for the Cambridge Yangon Trauma Intervention Partnership (CYTIP) and the NIHR Global Health Research Group on Neurotruma.
She also has a significant interest in the development of postgraduate medical education, particularly intensive care, both in the UK and in low income countries, most recently in Myanmar and Africa.
