Meet our member, Dr Matthew Arnold.
Dr Matthew Arnold is a lecturer within the Adelaide Medical School at the University of Adelaide. Matt has multiple roles within the school, coordinating the first-year courses of the new Bachelor of Medical Studies/Doctor of Medicine program, leading the development of the Scenario-Based Learning (SBL) curriculum, and coordinating a Year 6 elective rotation in Medical Education. Matt is a graduate of Adelaide Medical School, and after working clinically as a doctor upon graduating, he transitioned into a full-time academic role to follow a passion for medical education.
Matt has completed a graduate certificate in clinical education from Flinders University, and is currently undertaking a masters by coursework there. It was through this study that Matt first became aware of ANZAHPE and attended his first 'in-person' ANZAHPE conference in 2023:
"The ANZAHPE community has been extremely welcoming, and it has been so valuable to meet and learn from other passionate educators from various different backgrounds. The 2023 conference was a genuine highlight of the year, and provided such a fantastic opportunity to meet like minded colleagues and develop new friendships. I sought to join the LCT to seek to contribute positively to the continued success of ANZAHPE, and look forward to welcoming everyone to Adelaide in 2024."
