I’ma Finnish junior doctor completing my first year as a primary care physician. Parallel with that I’m working on my thesis on mobile learning in undergraduate medical education and the later use of mobile technology in the primary care setting with patients. Having been involved in my medical students’ association during mystudies, responsible e.g. for educational affairs, my interest in medical education and its development was sparked early on, amongst other through AMEE. Further, working as a preclinical instructor during my studies I gained an important view from the opposite side of the table of medical education at my school.
Having completed my Licentiate of Medicine (MD) in 2019 I’m currently in the first phase of my career, working as a GP and advancing my specific training in general medical practice. I’m currently also accepted for the specialising programme in anaesthesiology and intensive care medicine and since 2020 I’m working part-time as a clinical instructor.
Along with academics I’m involved in different medical education projects, editing online courses on workplace pedagogy, working for national projects on the digitalisation of medical education, and consulting on digital solutions such as patient simulators.
Moving into the second decade of this millennia as an associate fellow of AMEE I’m looking forward to further my involvement in the medical education scene and work towards making it a part of my medical career.
