School of Health Professions Education
The School of Health Professions Education (SHE) is a graduate school for research, education and innovation in health professions education. Since its inception, the vision and mission of SHE has been clear. We consistently focus on having a global impact on healthcare through research and translating this into education.

Integrity is of great importance for the quality and credibility of scientific research. All staff and students should deal responsibly with ethical or social issues threatening scientific integrity. But what if you make a mistake, or suspect others to violate scientific integrity consciously or unconsciously?
The SHE Research management team has studied the theses that were defended and selected Anique Atherley's thesis as the winner of the SHE Dissertation Award 2021.
