Quality counts

05 November 2008

The School of Medicine is welcoming international speakers to Cardiff for the University’s first conference on medical education research on 18 November.

The theme for the ‘Quality counts’ conference is how and why academics should be developing research that is both informed by and informs theory and how, subsequently, research translates into practice.

Keynote speeches will be given by Dr Glenn Regehr, Acting Associate Dean of Innovation in Medical Education at the University of Ottawa, Professor Srikant Sarangi, Director of the Health Communication Research Centre at Cardiff, and Professor John Bligh, President of the Academy of Medical Educators.

In total, the conference will feature 25 paper presentations and more than 20 poster presentations. There will also be workshops examining the development of a diversity training curriculum and the importance of developing good practice for those engaged in supervising medical research.

Places are still available at this event which takes place at the Heath Park campus and is open to all healthcare professional education researchers, clinicians, clinician teachers and medical students but registration closes on Monday 10 November. The registration fee is £65 and undergraduate students are eligible for a 50% discount.
