Focus of Work


My goal is to advocate and find support for innovation in medical education broadly - finding the best ways to train healthcare professionals. This includes assisting academic healthcare professionals in bringing a scholarly approach to the practice of teaching and assessing learners to ensure they meet the standards expected by society for competency, proficiency and mastery of clinical practice.
