Victorian Health Professions Education Showcase

Victorian Health Professions Education Showcase
Victorian Showcase of Research in Health Professions Education

"Contributing locally and globally to clinical education conversations" is the theme for the 2019 Victorian Showcase of Research in Health Professions Education.

The symposium, to be held in November, is an opportunity for students in the graduate master’s programs; Excellence in Clinical Education (Department of Medical Education) and Surgical Education (Department of Surgery and the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons) to present their work.

The showcase unites scholars from these programs to share their research experiences and findings.

It provides a supportive forum to facilitate collaborations and build and strengthen the growing community of health professions education researchers.

If you are engaged in health professions education, research and/or practice, you are very welcome to attend and join in the conversations about scholarship in the field of health professions clinical education.

We are fortunate to have two keynote speakers:

  • Professor Wendy Hu (Western Sydney University). Dr Hu is a Professor and Chair of Medical Education. She is an internationally renowned educator and researcher in health professions education. She has postgraduate qualifications in paediatrics, health administration and general practice.
  • Dr Rhea Liang (Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and Bond University). Dr Liang is a general and breast surgeon on the Gold Coast, surgical educationalist, diversity in surgery advocate, and Chair of the RACS Operating with Respect Education Committee. She has research interests in both breast cancer and professionalism issues. She has co-developed several courses which are delivered bi-nationally through RACS including the Surgical Teachers Course, Surgeons as Leaders course, and Operating with Respect course. She is currently also undertaking a PhD examining intersectionality in the development of the professional surgical identity. She tweets at @LiangRhea.
