Educational research is essential for finding new and better ways to educate doctors, nurses, physical therapists and other health professionals. The general aim of all SHE research, including the PhD programme, is to provide support for research and innovation in health professions education.

NEW SHE Dissertation Award

In our school, we have about 10 PhD candidates each year that defend their PhD Thesis. Many of these theses are of very high scientific quality. To honor our PhD candidates and to celebrate scientific progress in health professions education it has been decided to offer an annual SHE Dissertation Award for the best PhD thesis defended in a particular year. A jury has studied all theses that were defended in 2017 and, after careful consideration, selected one thesis for the SHE Dissertation Award 2017. The winner will be announced at the SHE Gathering, which will be organized parallel to the AMEE conference in Basel, on Monday, August 27, early in the evening. Please join this event to celebrate the first SHE Dissertation Award with us and to congratulate the winner!
