In the clinic, individual patients benefit directly from the knowledge and expertise of their specialist. However, when this knowledge and expertise is spread far and wide through education of others, whole populations of patients stand to benefit. 

With this philosophy in mind, Assoc Prof Jeremy Grummet regularly provides education to: 
> Colleagues through workshops
> Trainees and medical students by clinical supervision and tutorials
> GPs through conferences and educational meetings
> The broader community via local presentations, radio interviews, television appearances and online videos
