Medical education is recognised as a specific area of higher education. Otago Medical School supports and encourages those involved in health professional education to keep up with and contribute to research that will inform innovation in the learning offered to our students. The School is actively involved in many research projects related to health professional education.
Dr Kelby Smith-Han, Medical Education Academic Lead, is a first point of contact for anyone considering or undertaking medical education research. Kelby's role is to help lead, coordinate and foster medical education projects for the Otago Medical School, and to support researchers in conducting medical education research.
