Dr. Chris Watling, MD, MMEd, PhD, FRCP(C)
Competency-based medical education (CBME) challenges educators and institutions to embed observation and feedback into their everyday approaches to teaching and learning.  But in medical training, direct observation of learners remains inconsistent, and feedback too often proves suboptimal.  In this talk, the reasons for these problems will be critically examined, including the role of medicine's learning culture.  Ways of rising to the challenge offered by CBME will be discussed.

Dr. Watling is Associate Dean for Postgraduate Medical Education, Scientist at the Centre for Education Research and Innovation, and Associate Professor in the Departments of Clinical Neurological Sciences, Oncology, and Family Medicine at the University of Western Ontario. He received a Masters in Medical Education 2009 from the University of Dundee (2009), and a PhD in Health Professions Education from Maastricht University (2014). His research, which has been widely published in the medical education literature, explores how and why feedback influences learning, and how medicine’s professional culture shapes its educational practices.
