The faculty and staff at PERD provide years of experience to help healthcare professionals design theoretically grounded and rigorously administered research.
"McMaster Unversity has earned its reputation as an innovator in health sciences education. At PERD our goal is to continue to innovate ideas, disseminate scholarly work, and pollinate health education research centres in Canada and beyond. By making connections within our faculty between programs, between departments, between people, and between ideas, and by introducing just enough anarchy within our system to allow ideas to germinate and grow, we may not only maintain but enhance our pedigree." Dr. Harold Reiter, PERD Director
The PERD Network is PERD's informal membership circle. Made up of faculty, staff, students and associates, the Network functions as a potential resource center for those actively involved in Medical Education scholarship.
Please join us for the next PERD Educational Rounds on Wednesday March 1st at 5pm in MDCL 2232. At this talk Dr. Chris Watling will discuss how direct observation and feedback for learners in medical training remains a challenge within a competency-based medical education (CBME) context. The reasons for these problems will be critically examined, including the role of medicine's learning culture. Ways of rising to the challenge offered by CBME will also be discussed.
