Personal profile

Research interests

In the discipline of medical education, my interests are largely around learning in the early years of the medical programme. I have published extensively in the areas of curriculum reform, generic skills development, problem-based learning, faculty development and professionalism.

More recently, with other colleagues in the Faculty of Health Sciences & Medicine, we have researched the development of medical students' professional identities, from the perspectives of students and their teachers. As medical education becomes a global enterprise and being an international medical educator, I have become interested in the internationalisation of medicine. Accompanying this, are issues around professionalism in different cultures and contexts.

Research interests

Potential HDR students interested in any aspect of health professions or medical education can contact me.

There is a Health Professions Education Research Group in the Faculty, and it may be possible to tailor a project to suit a potential HDR student's needs, with one or more of the members of this group as supervisors and co-supervisors.
