Seminar series

The MCSHE Seminar Series provides a platform for sharing innovative health professions education research. Seminars are held monthly, local and international educational researchers are invited to share their scholarly work. This series includes (at least) twice yearly methodological workshops. Through these seminars and workshops our aim is to improve the scholarship of HPER in the Monash University FMNHS community. We welcome attendees to our Clayton campus, but also provide ZOOM teleconferencing for those who are unable to make it in person.
