Medical Education Research Program next 3 to 5 years (2014 to 2018)

"In the next 3 to 5 years, my focus in educational research will be to evaluate and develop insight into the use of hyperlinked indexed clinical and radiology case repositories in undergraduate and postgraduate education and training, under conditions of deliberate practice and mastery training"

as the project lead for the following institution wide pilot project, titled "Learning@NUHS".

which mirrors the original project website started just over 1 year ago (of a three year pilot project).


at the radiology departmental level, for postgraduate training, this project is titled "CaseBasedLearning@NUHS"

"Use of learning resources by Residents in Radiology: Correlating individual learning preferences with Actual Use, Linking this with Clinical Performance Requirements (On the job Emergency and Outpatient Radiology Reporting), and Determining how this can guide the provision of a personalised educational profile with advice for effective and efficient learning strategies, and How this can help teachers more effectively and efficiently present online case based material to fulfil training objectives for competency, proficiency and mastery performance - Qualitative Interview (Semi-Structured), Grounded Theory Method"

New X-ray app can be used for testing and training worldwide (BBC)
