Karen Mann Lecture & MERIS
Dr. Karen Mann Lectureship in Medical Education
The Karen Mann Lectureship in Medical Education is named in memory of Dr. Karen Mann, a life-long champion of the role medical education plays in advancing leadership in the field of medicine. Each year we remember our friend and colleague with a prominent lecturer in medical education.
MERIS (Medical Education Research and Innovation Showcase)
MERIS is our annual research showcase that presents innovation and schorlarly work relevant to medical, interprofessional and health professions education. As an attendee, you’ll join other professionals with a common interest in medical and health professions education.
It’s not only a perfect opportunity to meet and share information with faculty, preceptors, residents and students in the medical, dental and health professions community, it’s also a chance to mingle with other members of the greater Dalhousie community.
This offers a forum for faculty, residents and students to present their scholarly/professional working topics such as curriculum, teaching,learning, evaluation and faculty development in undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing education.
The 2023 Karen Mann Lecture will kick off the 4th Annual MERIS.
