Abstract

The HERDSA Fellowship Scheme recognises high quality educational practice in which HERDSA members can join with colleagues in a supported and structured professional recognition and learning experience.

Why would a HERDSA member apply for a Fellowship? Some members apply because it assists them in a critical phase in their career such as promotion. Some apply because the award of a Fellowship represents peer recognition of their achievements over a period of time. Others recognise that the process of taking time out from their hectic schedule to reflect on their educational practices or to develop their leadership roles will allow them an opportunity to move forward in their personal and professional development.

The process of applying for a Fellowship is a personal journey; it is different for everyone. This interactive session provides an opportunity for you to learn more about the Fellowship Scheme, what is expected in an application and what is expected in terms of articulating your reflections on your educational practice. You will have the opportunity to ask questions, clarify issues and hear from other fellows who have made the journey. It also provides an opportunity to learn how a HERDSA Fellowship differs from other Fellowship schemes.

Come and meet members of the HERDSA Fellowship Committee and other Fellows. Participants attending the session will have the opportunity to have their $50 Fellowships registration fees waived.
