Meet FoHPE's newest Associate Editor, Dr Kwang Cham.
Kwang is a teaching-focused academic within the Melbourne School of Health Sciences at the University of Melbourne. As the School Director of Education Research, Kwang's role is to support teaching-focused academics in research and the scholarship of teaching and learning. Trained as an optometrist, Kwang delivers substantial coordination and teaching duties across all 4 years of the Doctor of Optometry Program within the Department of Optometry and Vision Sciences.
"The ANZAHPE conference was where it all began in 2013. I was inspired by the people that presented and influenced by others that I interacted with. It was always a welcoming atmosphere and I felt that I have found my tribe! Through the support and mentoring at ANZAHPE over the last few years, I have transformed into a health profession educator (though the imposter syndrome still kicks in at times). I have been a member of ANZAHPE since 2019 and became an Associate Fellow that same year.
This year, I am humbled and grateful to be given the opportunity to serve as an Associate Editor in FoHPE, a journal that aligns with my vision. I am glad to support the ecosystem that I thrive in, and looking at the people that I am surrounded with, it is going to be an exciting chapter of my life!"
