Director's message

"We are a faculty wide centre with a mission to improve health education through research"

Claire Palermo

Director, Monash Centre for Scholarship in Health Education, Associate Professor Claire Palermo

Health professionals and the teams in which they work must have the right knowledge, skills, attitudes, behaviours and practices to improve the health of our population.

The Monash Centre for Scholarship in Health Education (MCSHE) aims to improve the quality of health professions education through scholarship/research.

MCSHE brings together educational researchers from across the Monash Faculty of Medicine, Nursing & Health Sciences (FMNHS), from across Monash University, other Universities (both home and overseas), and industry partners. We are committed to improving healthcare education through high quality research, effective collaborations, continuous translation of research findings back into health education policy and practice and research-informed teaching and teaching that informs research.

We are fortunate to have a vast range of diverse healthcare professions represented within FMNHS at Monash, allowing for exciting opportunities for interprofessional and interdisciplinary working, leading to cross-fertilisation of ideas and innovations in health professions education and educational research.

Best wishes, Claire
