ASME are delighted to announce Prof Nisha Dogra as the final plenary speaker at our 2020 Annual Scholarship Meeting. Prof Dogra will help ASME with the 2020 theme - Disrupting Medical Education, designed to challenge the norms in our field.
Nisha Dogra is Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry Education at the Greenwood Institute of Child Health, University of Leicester. She is also an external lecturer on the MMedSci Medical Education Masters at the University of Nottingham.
Throughout her career Nisha was been involved in the development and delivery of a wide variety of teaching and training events in undergraduate and postgraduate education, locally, nationally and internationally in both psychiatry and diversity.
Nisha has led innovations in how medical students can be taught diversity to ensure they deliver high quality care to a range of patients and understand how their own perspectives may influence the care they provide. This has extended to how educators ensure their practice is inclusive and the need for organisations to have transparent processes to implement equality, diversity and inclusion policies.
Prof Dogra told ASME
“I am delighted to have been invited to present at ASM 2020 given the key role ASME plays in developing and supporting scholarship in Medical Education”
Prof Dogra’s diversity themed talk will disrupt the traditional 'plenary' in both content and format: watch this space for more information on how ASME will disrupt #MedEd in 2020!
