Interested in Medical Education and want to learn more about qualitative research and autoethnography? JASME’s Local Representatives in collaboration with the Medical Education Research Unit (MERU), Imperial College London are delighted to present this webinar titled ‘Inward- and outward-looking: Introduction to Autoethnography and its potential for medical education’.

Autoethnography is a qualitative research method anchored in personal and reflective ways of looking at lived experiences while simultaneously describing and mainly critiquing cultural beliefs, practices, experiences, and theories (Holman Jones, Adams & Ellis, 2016). Autoethnography increases the visibility of individual, nuanced, complex and usually unheard stories from students, teachers, researchers and practitioners, “offering a novel avenue to engage in reflexivity” (Koopman et al., 2020, p.2). This is particularly relevant to health professions education, namely medical education.

In this interactive session, you will be introduced to this research method and explore its potential for medical education. 

Dr Ana Baptista, (BA, PGCE equivalent, MA, PhD, SFHEA) is the Principal Teaching Fellow – Strategic Lead for Medical Education Transformation, at Imperial College London and is a representative of the Medical Education Research Unit (MERU) whose research interest is in autoethnography. 

Deadline to register is 22nd May 2022 6pm UK time.
