Creating exciting and long-lasting developments in both practice and scholarship across the faculty, the Fellowship aims to forge connections with internationally recognised leaders in the teaching of clinical humanities, pharmacogenomics and interprofessional and ethical decision making. In addition, with academics developing new models for engaging patients as educators.

Dr Virtue will use the opportunity to investigate how to best engage patients as educators to enhance student preparedness and learning for clinical placements, while Dr Kusljic will focus on developing approaches to the teaching and learning of pharmacogenomics – the use of genetic information from patients to guide drug therapy.
