Advances in Health Sciences Education

Advances in Health Sciences Education serves as an international forum for
scholarly and state-of-the-art research and development into all aspects of
health sciences education. It will not only publish empirical studies but
also stimulate theoretical discussions and address practical implications.
Reviews of important developments in the field will be particularly
encouraged, since advances in a field can only result from a deep
understanding of what has already been accomplished. The editors welcome
contributions in which a line of reasoning is illustrated with multiple
experiments or correlational studies. In addition, the editors encourage
submission of new ideas for health sciences education, papers that are not
necessarily empirical in nature, but describe interesting new educational
tools, approaches or solutions.

The journal will accept articles on topics such as problem-based learning,
tutorial guidance, self-directed learning, staff development, achievement
testing, forms of motivation and how to promote them, learning styles,
curriculum development, curricular comparisons, program evaluation,
expertise development, continuing education, community-based education, and
communication skills. It is aimed at all those committed to the improvement
of health professions education; educational researchers and educators in
the fields of medicine, nursing, occupational therapy, physiotherapy,
nutrition and related disciplines.

Subscribers have access to full-text articles.
