Maddison Caterine, MSc, MB, BCh, BAO

Senior Director of Medical Education

Maddison Caterine (MSc, MB, BCh, BAO) 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. During her medical training, she also received the Program for Improvement in Medical Education (PRIME) certification which focused on quality improvement in medical education. Since joining Osmosis, Maddison has been leading the Question Writing team to create high quality assessment items for our learners. She also led a 5-part monthly webinar series called “How to Ace Medical School and the USMLE” which focused on how to answer USMLE Step 1 questions. Maddison is now the Director of Curriculum at Osmosis, where she develops course outlines and learning objectives for videos across the Osmosis platform, Diffusion Studios, and Osmosis continuing medical education (CME) courses. Her favorite project has been developing the upcoming anatomy series! She loves traveling and hiking with her husband, but more importantly, she loves a good TV show marathon while cuddling her dog and eating pizza!
