Research interests

My research focuses on student learning and assessment in anatomical education and more broadly, in medical education. I’m particularly interested in the perceptions that students have about medical school prior to enrolling, while at medical school, and after they have graduated. I’m also interested in item analysis of exam questions and the effectiveness of including visual reference materials (pictures, drawings, medical images etc.).
