Kristina Lisk

Kristina holds a PhD in Health Professions Education from the University of Toronto, a MSc in Clinical Anatomy from Western University, and a BScH (Life Sciences) from Queen's University. Her PhD research focused on understanding how learners use basic science knowledge in clinical reasoning and examined curricular integration to optimize learning of the basic sciences. During her PhD studies Kristina also completed a 3-year research fellowship at the Wilson Centre for Health Professions Education at University Health Network in Toronto.
