SHE Dissertation Award for Alina Smirnova


In our school, we have about 10 PhD candidates each year that defend their PhD Thesis. Many of these theses are of very high scientific quality. To honor our PhD candidates and to celebrate scientific progress in health professions education we offer an annual SHE Dissertation Award for the best PhD thesis defended in a particular year. A jury has studied all theses that were defended in 2018 and, after careful consideration, selected one thesis for the SHE Dissertation Award 2018. The winner was announced at the SHE Gathering by Diana Dolmans, organized parallel to the AMEE conference in Vienna. We congratulate Alina with this great achievement.
