This interpretive phenomenological study reports on the findings from in-depth interviews of 38 final year medical students who had experienced a significant academic interruption and follows their process of working through failure and their transition from academic failure to becoming a junior doctor.

She is a multi-award winning teacher, past academic lead in selection for medicine and dentistry and was the Associate Dean of Education across Health at UWA from 2010-2016. Sandra is a mixed methods researcher with more than 60 publications exploring selection, curriculum development, learning and teaching, assessment and evaluation of course outcomes.
