Maddison Caterine, MSc, MB, BCh, BAO

Senior Director of Medical Education

Maddison Caterine is the Senior Director of Medical Education at Osmosis from Elsevier, where she leads curriculum development for our medical products and oversees the subject matter experts that create and review our scripts and assessment items. She first joined Osmosis as the Head of Question Writing in 2019 after completing her medical degree at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI). Before heading to medical school, she completed her Masters in Clinical Anatomy at Western University in Canada where she helped teach undergraduate nursing, physical and occupational therapy, dental, and medical students. This was where she discovered her passion for health professions education, and received her Western Certificate for University Teaching and Learning. She then continued on to teach Anatomy at the American University of the Caribbean and Ross University School of Medicine. She is currently leading the development of our new Clinical Sciences content aimed to help first-time clinical learners think clinically with decision-making trees, approachable and concise videos, and board-style assessment items. Her other favorite project to date has been the Osmosis Anatomy series!
