To adapt to emerging technologies, evolving systems and changing needs of patients, health care providers must expand their professional competencies to include research and inquiry. TIER is opening the doors to developing research for college-based health care professions, while also seeking education theories and practice to respond to emerging needs. Through our relationship with the Michener Institute for Education and UHN Research, we are leveraging existing structures to bring research, education and learning together.
Dr. Maria Mylopoulos, PhDScientist and Associate Director of Training Programs, The Wilson Centre, UHNAssociate Professor, Department of Paediatrics, University of TorontoCurriculum Scientist, Undergraduate Medical Education & Medical Psychiatry Alliance (MPA)
Dr. Mylopoulos' research program explores the development and maintenance of expertise, with a particular focus on how health professionals deal with uncertainty, novelty and complexity in their daily clinical problem solving. The aim of her research is to evolve understanding of the knowledge and capabilities that underpin this facet of expertise as it occurs in real-world contexts using theoretical frameworks of clinical reasoning and adaptive expertise. The ultimate goal of her research is to translate this understanding to educational design that promotes the development of exceptional clinicians who are able to handle the complexities and challenges of the health care workplace.

Dr. Rowland's research concerns the shifts in professional workplaces. She uses theories and tools from the social sciences to better understand what these shifts imply for the future of professional work. Dr. Rowland is also interested in sociocultural approaches to understanding learning and practice within clinical workplaces. These include dynamics of the clinical learning environment, practice-based learning, workplace learning, knowledge mobilization, and continuing professional development.
