After a brief period of sabbatical cover as University Veterinary Clinician in Anaesthesia at the University of Glasgow, Sean moved to the University of Cambridge in 2013. As Clinical Anaesthetist and Affiliate Lecturer Sean combined his work as a clinical specialist in the Queen’s Veterinary School Hospital with passing on his enthusiasm for anaesthesia and analgesia to undergraduate students and specialist trainees. Sean joined the University of Surrey in April 2017 as Teaching Fellow in Anaesthesia and was promoted to Senior Teaching Fellow in 2019.
