Let's talk about... thriving as a clinician educator

Presenters: Chris Nickson, Yobelli Jimenez, Joanne Somerville and Wonie Uahwatanasakul

Date: Thursday 15 February 2024

Time: 1:00pm - 2:00pm (AEDT)

In this month’s Member Networking session, our presenters will discuss approaches and strategies that help them thrive as clinician educators. This could include engaging in professional development of teaching skills, keeping up to date with health professions education literature, creating a community of practice, seeking a role model or mentorship, and many more!

We will then head to break out rooms to encourage an intimate discussion into what our members do, have done, or wish to do, to thrive in their respective areas!
