Past Recipients

Joan Sargeant, PhD

Dalhousie University

Title of Presentation: Where are we heading in medical education?

Joan Sargeant, BN, MEd, PhD is Professor, Division of Medical Education (DME), Faculty of Medicine, Dalhousie University, Halifax. She recently completed her term as Head, DME and prior to that was Director, Program in Health and Medical Education Research, DME, and before that, Director Research and Evaluation, Continuing Professional Development.

Joan is an educator, researcher and administrator who has been engaged in medical education across the continuum. Recently at Dalhousie she has served as a member of the UGME Assessment and Curriculum committees, is actively engaged in promoting competency-based education in PGME, and from the CPD perspective, is active in studying how physicians learn from their practice. In her role as Head, DME, she fostered programs which spanned the continuum, such as communication skills, critical thinking and the humanities, and mentored students, residents and faculty.

In her research, she is particularly interested in understanding the role external data and feedback play in learner development across undergraduate, post-graduate and continuing education, and in promoting continuous learning. Her research program in assessment and feedback explores how learners and physicians are assessed in clinical practice, how they are engaged in feedback discussions, how they assimilate external performance data with their own perceptions of how they’re doing, and the opportunities which coaching might offer in enhancing learner and physician ongoing development. Additional areas of research interest include interprofessional education, professionalism, and
knowledge translation.

Joan is actively involved in national and international professional committees, and is frequently invited as a visiting scholar by other schools and organizations. Outside of her work, Joan enjoys sailing, gardening, hiking and spending time with family and friends.
