Journal - Focus on Health Professional Education (FoHPE)
Focus on Health Professional Education is the official journal of ANZAHPE, formally established in November 1998. The journal is published by the Association to promote, support and advance education in the health professions, and is intended for educators, clinicians and students who have a commitment to improving health care through better teaching and learning.
Four underlying principles make the journal distinctive from others:

FoHPE Editorial Board
The Editorial Board acts as an advisory body to the Editor and the ANZAHPE Committee of Management (CoM) on the editorial policy and procedures of the journal. The Editorial Board consists of a number of eminent active educators and researchers in the field of health professional education and is determined by the CoM, with due regard for the need for representation across disciplines, nationally and internationally.
The roles and responsibilities of members of the Editorial Board are to advise on the maintenance of the journal’s standards for quality and guide its scope and focus, including the refereeing procedures for submitted articles and suitable reviewers and topics. The Board manages all submissions of the journal and facilitates writing and reviewing workshops as part of the annual ANZHPE conference.
The Editor is appointed by the ANZAHPE CoM to be responsible for the implementation of editorial policy and procedures. The current FoHPE Editor is A/Prof Andy Wearn. Dr Karen Scott is the incoming Editor from January 2020.

History of FoHPE
During 1997, the ANZAHPE Executive agreed that it wished to establish an independent journal. An important priority of the journal moving forward is to continue to raise the profile of FoHPE locally and internationally, achieve academic listing in a wider range of databases, and move to the online Open Journal Systems.
