The School of Health Professions Education (SHE) community consists of a diverse network that provides a sounding board between individuals sharing the same interests. Part of our mission is contributing to the continuation of the collaborative learning that takes place within this network. SHE’s international community builds on a lively international network of alumni and students as well as their professional networks. We annually report about our work, keep you updated through the SHE newsletter, meet up at conferences, organise events such as SHE Academy and stay connected through Facebook.
The benefit of the strong SHE Community comes from the ongoing professional connections, friendships and collaborations that are forged between people engaged in health professions education around the world. These connections are made and consolidated within the network and offer supportive opportunities for each member to help solve issues in their own home countries.
PhD/Masters Scholarship: Place, Identity and Education
Closing date: Apr 30, 2020
The School of Medicine at Western Sydney University is offering scholarships for Masters and PhD candidates conducting research on the theme of Place, Identity and Learning. Successful applicants will investigate the intriguing relationships between sense of place and medical education. Moreover, how these lead to professional identity, competence and careers in medicine. The research will leverage the rare opportunity of a new rural medical program that will augment the School's existing medical program in a medically underserved outer metropolitan region. Findings will be directly translatable to practice, helping to address the School's founding commitment to widening access to medical education, and to improving the health of underserved communities. Suitable applicants have the option of enrolling in the Western Sydney - Maastricht University dual award PhD, or the Western Sydney Masters or PhD programs.
