Professor Nicky Hudson is Professor of Health Professional Education at the University of Adelaide. She is a general medical practitioner who has worked in urban, indigenous and remote health in South Australia. She started her academic career at the University of Adelaide, playing a major role in medical curriculum development and reform, as well as completing a PhD on the challenge of linking theory to practice in medical education. As a foundation staff member (Academic Leader in Human Function) at Peninsula Medical School in the South West of England, she gained further valuable experience to subsequently contribute to the development of an innovative medical curriculum at the Graduate School of Medicine (GSM) at the University of Wollongong. At the GSM, as Chair of the Assessment she led in the implementation of a competency-based assessment programme, and as leader of the Clinical Competency theme she developed two clinical skills centres and the associated skills programme.

Following this she was Director of Rural Health at the University of Newcastle in NSW, maintaining her passion for rural health. Her research interests include assessment, the impact of longitudinal integrated community based education on all key stakeholders, including patients, interprofessional education and rural workforce and health education. She is an active member of the global health and medical education community, presenting regularly at international medical education conferences and publishing in the international literature.
