Health Professions Education Journal Club

January 18, 2019 Health Professions Education Journal Club

Monthly HPE Journal Club’s aim is to bring together a community of health professions practitioner to reflect, share ideas and bring about positive change in IMU learning environment.

Unlike usual practice of journal club, the facilitator will provide assigned learning materials with pre-designed questions. The aim of this activity is to provide the opportunity for the participants to reflect on issues that are relevant to their roles as faculty or professional staff at IMU. The assigned reading materials are mainly used as perspectives or filters for our reflection, discussion and future actions.
