Theory in your health professional research

Dr Lara Varpio 

Description:  Incorporating theory into your medical education scholarship is now expected research practice. Unfortunately, for many clinician-educators, this challenge is daunting because there are few, if any, resources on  how  to incorporate the theory. This workshop is designed to specifically address that challenge. 

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to: 

  • Distinguish between post-positivist and constructivist paradigms 
  • Contrast inductive and deductive reasoning 
  • Differentiate between 4 different ways of using theory  in health professions education research.

Dr Lara Varpio is Professor of Medicine, and Associate Director of Research for the Center for Health Professions Education at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS). Dr. Varpio spent the first 6 years of her career at the University of Ottawa, Canada before moving to Washington DC, USA to join USUHS.
