SHE Academy is a community-building conference for PhD students and staff members of The Maastricht School of Health Professions Education (SHE). We have scheduled many different activities that all aim at getting to know your fellow PhD students and the staff members of SHE, as well as their research. SHE Academy will take place at the Randwyck campus, Universiteitssingel 40 (UNS 40), Maastricht. The registration fee will be 300 euro if you register before February 1st. If you register after that, the fee will be 350 euro. PhD candidates and other researcher not affiliated to SHE are welcome too, the registrations fee for them is 450 euro. The deadline for registration is February 20th 2017. Three reasons to visit the SHE Academy: SHE Learns The SHE Academy gives you the opportunity to develop your academic skills and knowledge. Two keynotes lectures are given by Dr. Lorelei Lingard and Dr. Jelte Wicherts. The workshops aim to help you to develop specific academic skills, such as presenting, writing and data analysis. The journal club aims to foster your critical thinking skills, while at the same time giving you an insight into current research interests of SHE. To wrap things up, we planned a reflection session on the final day. SHE Meets Meet your fellow PhD students as well as SHE staff! In the poster session, everybody presents his/her research interests, so you can get a great overview of all research that is done within SHE. Interested in a more in-depth discussion about your topic of interest? You can meet similar-minded PhD students in the journal club or present during one of the presentation sessions. A great moment to get detailed feedback! Want to meet your supervisors for some face-to-face talk about your research? Use one of the dedicated time slots for this, so you don’t miss out on the other activities. And don’t forget the speed dating session, the favourite session of last Academy’s participants. What better way to get to know each other’s interests than by creating research ideas together? Of course, the diners and social events give you the opportunity to take a rest from all research-related talk, so you can catch up with your old and new friends. SHE defends Almost ready to finish your PhD project? There are many activities that are relevant for you! The practice dissertation defense allows you to experience the defense ceremony in a safe environment, so you feel optimally prepared for your defense. The workshop ‘What to do by the end of your PhD’ gives information on all practical issues regarding the final months of your PhD. Furthermore on Wednesday afternoon there will be the oportunity to attend the dissertation defense of Taryn Taylor.
