    ANZAHPE celebrates its 50th year anniversary in 2022, and to mark this significant milestone is planning to produce a series of papers on themes representing the core values of ANZAHPE. The papers will be published across a number of issues in the ANZAHPE journal, Focus on Health Professional Education (FoHPE), starting in the December 2022 Vol 23.4. The papers should be forward-looking, innovative and focus on the future of Health Professional Education in Australia, Aotearoa New Zealand and globally. The papers would be authored by selected key contributors to ANZAHPE who would enlist supporting authors. Selection may be through expression of interest or nomination by the ANZAHPE Committee of Management. Inclusivity principles will guide author selection. All authors will be required to submit an Abstract in advance which will be reviewed by a panel. Completed papers will be reviewed by a FoHPE Associate Editor. The series Editor will provide a commentary on the core values and resulting papers.

    The Core Values and briefs are listed on the document attached here.

    Expressions of Interest are called for the following papers in the Anniversary Collection.

    • Health professional education for inclusive health services in the next 50 years (Core Value 2)
    • Learning, teaching and assessment in health professional education and scholarship in the next 50 years (Core Value 4)
    • Health professional education for a globally interdependent world in the next 50 years (Core Value 5)
    • Mentoring, support and workplace learning for health professionals, educators and researchers in the next 50 years (Core Value 6)

    The ANZAHPE Committee of Management is commissioning the remaining two papers in the collection.

    Papers should be up to 2000 words long. Submission dates will be negotiated with successful authors.

    Expressions of interest should be submitted by the Lead Author. They should contain a one-page CV of the Lead Author and the names and affiliation of all Contributing Authors. It is expected that all authors would be ANZAHPE members.

    The Expression of Interest should be accompanied by an Abstract of no more than 500 words setting out:

    • an overview of the paper,
    • its theoretical underpinnings and location within the literature in the field
    • the main arguments in the paper
    • the major conclusions to be drawn.                                              


    Abstracts will be reviewed by a Selection Panel with a membership of;

    • the Editor of FoHPE
    • the two FoHPE Associate Editors assigned to the Anniversary Collection
    • the Anniversary Collection series Editor.

    The following criteria will be used to select the successful Abstracts.

    • The expertise of the Lead Author and standing within ANZAHPE
    • The quality and diversity of the writing team. Preference may be given to teams with a combination of senior and junior members.
    • How well the ideas presented in the Abstract embody the relevant ANZAHPE Core Value underpinning the paper
    • How well the Abstract demonstrates that the paper will be forward looking and at the cutting edge of the topic.
    • The likely overall academic quality of the paper as judged from the Abstract

    Expressions of interest should be submitted to

    My whole of academic career spans over 25 years in positions at La Trobe, Monash and Deakin universities as well as education lead roles at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. My academic career was built on and overlaps with clinical physiotherapy experience, with specialist Cardiorespiratory training at The Brompton Hospital, London and senior clinical roles in Cardiorespiratory Physiotherapy both in adult and paediatric populations in the United Kingdom and Australia. Completing my PhD in 2006, I have pivoted to predominantly teaching and leadership focused roles and am currently the course coordinator of the Doctor of Physiotherapy program at the University of Melbourne. My scholarly interests are in the use of technology enhanced/supported learning, ePortfolios to support flexible and self-regulated learning, transition to practice and professional resilience and interprofessional education and practice.

    I am delighted to have been accepted as an Associate Fellow of ANZAHPE which has long history of promoting and supporting health professional educators. As an AFANZAHPE I aim to connect, collaborate with and learn from and with other members, building on and sharing my expertise at national and international level. I am also committed to mentoring and championing the health professional educators of the future. Finally, I will contribute to and promote the growth of ANZAHPHE.

    I am currently working in a dual role as a Lecturer in Medical Education as a member of the School Assessment Leadership Team and a Lecturer of Optometry at the School of Medicine, Deakin University. As a healthcare professional I have thirteen years’ experience working across two disciplines, radiation therapy and optometry, often as a clinical supervisor and educator.

    My scholarly interests include clinical assessment, curriculum development and the role simulation and technology play in developing the professional identify and skills of a health care practitioner. I am passionate about innovation and recently was awarded the WJB Banks Vice Chancellors award with my colleagues for our work on developing virtual international clinical placements at Deakin University.

    I decided to apply for an Associate Fellowship with the Australian & New Zealand Association for Health Professional Educators (ANZAHPE) to continue to be part of conversations and opportunities that inspire and engage ventures beyond the norms of education. I look forward to being part of this community of practice.

    I’ve worked as a health professionals’ educator for ten years. Starting in my honours year I realised that teaching was something I was passionate about. It was also something I was raised to be, coming from a family of educators. In my current role as a lecturer I coordinate and teach public health and health research methods to Medical, Biomedical, Public Health and Health Science undergraduate students at Monash University. I’ve received awards for teaching excellence, particularly in relation to my contributions to student wellbeing. In more recent years I have conducted health professionals research which focuses on the employability of our graduates. This has included the development of a dataset mapping students careers through LinkedIn and numerous interviews of alumni and students. Some of which I have shared at previous ANZAPHE festivals. I am currently undertaking my Master of Education at the University of Melbourne.  


    I joined ANZAPHE as an Associate Fellow to connect with liked minded professionals, sharing collective wisdom and resources. As someone who is passionate about others career’s I see this as an opportunity to develop my own.  I look forward to expanding my connections with the ANZAPHE community.

    The Festival committee would like to invite additional abstracts reviewers from our membership, if you are interested, please contact us

    Our first ANZAHPE ONLINE event for 2022 will focus on student support, but whilst supporting students how do we support ourselves as health professional educators; “Bouncing Forward; Mental Wealth for Staff and Student”.

    As we farewell 2021, this is a great opportunity to reflect on our personal and professional achievements, and how we can best prepare for 2022. For some this will be a festive season but for all of us this is a break away from work to spend quality time with those we care about, including ourselves.
