My current research examines procedures, outcomes, and policy recommendations related to how physicians are trained and assessed. My main research program is in the area of competency-based education and assessment. I am one of the developers of the Competency-Based Achievement System (CBAS). In all of my research, I use mixed methods research to evaluate and improve educational and assessment practices in health professions education at the undergraduate, postgraduate, and continuing professional education levels. A component of this research examines experiences of women in training and in practice in medicine, as well as gender differences in how women are taught and assessed, and how they teach and assess others.
