Professor Jackie Cassell studied medical sciences and English literature at the University of Cambridge, then completed her medical degree at the University of Oxford.  She worked as a junior doctor in North Wales and East London, then took a degree in philosophy at the University of Sussex while working part time as a family planning, sexually transmitted infections, A&E and blood transfusion doctor. Having established an interest in sexual health and infectious diseases, Jackie trained as a specialist in genitourinary medicine (sexually transmitted infections and HIV) and in public health medicine in London. She was very lucky to be appointed as a Wellcome Trust Health Services Research Training fellow for her doctoral studies in the Department of Sexually Transmitted Diseases at University College London, allowing her to do academic training in addition to specialist medical training.
