My name is Jo Bishop, and I am seeking re-nomination as a member of the ANZAHPE Committee of Management/Board. I am deeply committed to supporting ANZAHPE’s mission of promoting excellence in health education for all members.

During my tenure on the ANZAHPE board, and as president for the last three years I have successfully led various initiatives by fostering collaboration among a diverse range of stakeholders through my professional networks. These efforts directly align with ANZAHPE’s strategic goals and have resulted in significant advancements in the educational programs available to our members.

In my current role as the Head of Curriculum for Bond University’s Medical Program, I draw upon my extensive experience in teaching, curriculum development, and academic leadership. This role has provided me with a deep understanding of the complexities and challenges inherent in health education, which I will continue to address through my work with ANZAHPE.

I am passionate about the future of health education and am dedicated to ensuring that ANZAHPE is the organization that leads key discussions at the forefront of the field. If re-nominated, I will continue to support ANZAHPE in advancing its goals, contributing to the organization’s growth, and fostering a supportive and dynamic environment for all members. Additionally, I would like to prioritise wellbeing and inclusive practices across all members and foster mentorship of our junior colleagues.

Thank you for considering my re-election. I look forward to the opportunity to continue serving ANZAHPE and supporting the incoming president as the immediate past-president.


I am a senior lecturer and Education Adviser for the University of Otago Wellington. I am also Co-Director of the Otago Medical School’s Education Development and Staff Support Unit (EDSSU). I have been a member of ANZAHPE since 2018 and Associate Fellow since 2020. I have a PhD in Experimental Psychology, and a keen interest in student academic motivation and the use of educational technology to engage learning. I came to health professional education about 10 years ago, the long way around, beginning as an academic teaching psychology in Japan, before moving to New Zealand and working in several fields doing learning design, curriculum development and elearning development. I now enjoy working with health professional staff to develop their teaching skills to improve student learning while doing research in health professional education. I have experience in faculty development including facilitating professional development workshops, peer observation, and supporting student feedback on teaching. I also have expertise in the use of educational technology to support student learning and have worked closely with health professional staff to develop their use of educational technology as part a blended learning environment. In 2022 I was elected to CoM for the first time. I was thrilled to be nominated for and voted by the CoM to be the lead for the Professional Development portfolio. During that time I have worked with members of ANZAHPE to further develop our offering of professional development activities to suit the needs of the membership.


I started my academic career in Indonesia in 1996 and I have been teaching in Australia since 2005 at the undergraduate, honours, postgraduate coursework and doctorate levels. Having taught across Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy and Public Health, I have deep insights into health professional education (HPE) and interprofessional collaboration.

Leading Community Engaged Learning at Western Sydney University School of Medicine since 2014, I oversee, maintain and develop partnerships with 200+ community service organisations in teaching and learning, research and service. My achievements have been recognised with multiple WSU Awards (Community Engagement x4, Teaching x2, Academic Leadership x2). My Community Engaged Learning works led me to champion an Intersectionality approach in addressing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in medical education, the university, professional organisations and the community. My innovative pedagogy and leadership resulted in Senior Fellowship from AdvanceHE UK, where I now serve as an Accreditor. I co-founded the Public Health Association of Australia’s DEI Special Interest Group and served as Inaugural Convenor (2019-2022), from which I was elected as PHAA Board Member 2020-2022 and conferred PHAA Fellow and Mentor of the Year in 2022. I also co-founded the International Community of Practice (CoP) on DEI in Medical Education under the auspices of AMEE. My curricular contributions and leadership in LGBTQIA+ health was recognised by ACON 2022 Honour Award, and presently I am leading the establishment of a National CoP on LGBTQIA+ Health and Social Care Curricula Development. My other DEI works range from raising awareness of perimenopause, to supporting refugee doctors’ integration to clinical practice in Australia.

I intend to support ANZAHPE CoM’s DEI, Professional Development, and Collaborative Practice portfolios, and promote Community Engaged Learning approach in HPE. I will bring insights from my extensive networks (e.g., ACEN, Carnegie, The Muster/ICEMEN, Patient Voice, TUFH, PHAA/CAPHIA) as relevant to ANZAHPE’s strategic priorities.
