Jan. 8 DSS to Feature Dr. Geoffrey R. Norman

The next Distinguished Scientist Seminar at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine will feature Dr. Geoffrey R. Norman, professor of clinical epidemiology and biostatistics and assistant dean for the Program for Educational Research and Development (PERD) at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

The lecture, titled "The Science of Teaching and Learning: Evidence-Based Strategies to Enhance Clinical Teaching," will take place Jan. 8, 2014, at 4 p.m. in the first floor auditorium of the Medical Sciences Building on USA's main campus.

Dr. Norman's academic interests focus on the psychology of expertise particularly as applied to expert clinicians. His research is focused on the psychology of clinical reasoning, particularly in the relative contribution of rapid processing based on prior experience (so-called pattern recognition) and analytical rules, and educational strategies to improve reasoning.

Dr. Norman earned his master of arts degree from Michigan State and his Ph.D. from McMaster University. Click here to learn more about Dr. Norman.
