Jennifer Lane


NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow in Orthopaedic Surgery

Jenny studied undergraduate medicine at Exeter College, Oxford, where she was awarded Scholar status. Graduating from clinical medicine in 2010, she undertook basic medical and surgical training in London. In 2014, Jenny graduated with distinction from Masters of Surgical Education degree at Imperial College, London, and returned to Oxford as NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow and Specialist Registrar in Orthopaedic Surgery.

Main research interests

Intervention and outcomes in early osteoarthritis

Working with Professor Sion Glyn-Jones, Jenny has been examining the role of new innovation in the prediction of osteoarthritis. Their work has focused upon identifying individuals most likely to benefit from these new procedures, and to develop a greater understanding of their role in modern surgical care.

Epidemiology of common hand conditions

Jenny is working with Professor Dominic Furniss, investigating the role of population studies in prevention and treatment of common hand conditions. She is interested in how big data can be used to improve our understanding of disease processes, and how this research can be used to involve patients in future healthcare design and provision.

Surgical Education 

Jenny has undertaken qualitative research investigating the impact of the introduction of the major trauma network upon higher orthopaedic training, and the results debated at a national level.  Passionate about improving surgical training, she co-led the redesign of the University’s undergraduate orthopaedic trauma surgery programme with Mr Steve Gwilym, incorporating new elements of simulation technology to enrich the course. She is an educational supervisor for the medical school, and a surgical tutor at Exeter College, Oxford.

Oxford Orthopaedic Research Collaborative

Jenny is a member of the steering group of this trainee-led research collaborative. The group aims to improve engagement of orthopaedic trainees in high-level research projects, and promote a culture of evidence-based practice. The collaborative is launching its first multi-centre qualitative project in Spring 2016, exploring the perceptions around the role of guidelines in surgical decision-making and patient management.
