The supervision of postgraduate studies is a complex endeavour, particularly in those instances, such as the MMed, where the research is not necessarily the main objective for the qualification. In this online, interactive workshop, we will focus on the supervision of postgraduate students who must complete research as part of their clinical training. The first e-workshop took place on Thursday 4 March 2021.

The host, Susan van Schalkway, is Professor in Health Professions Education and Director of the Centre for Health Professions Education in the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at Stellenbosch University. She has more than 15 years’ experience in academic staff development, with a specific interest in academic identity. Her work seeks to advance a social justice agenda with current research in the field of transformative learning theory, and the implications it holds for health professions education. She has supervised a number of Master’s and doctoral students, while also focusing on the strengthening of postgraduate supervision and academic writing at this level. The session was also co-hosted by Prof Bob Mash from the Primafamed Network.
