Personal profile

Research Biography

Adrian is Professor at the College of Medicine and Public Health, Flinders University, and a Fellow of the Australian & New Zealand Association for Health Professional Educators (ANZAHPE). He is affilliated with the Prideaux Centre for Research in Health Professions Education and played an instrumental role in establishing a solid foundation for the physiotherapy course at Flinders University to underpin the musculoskeletal and inter-professional practice curriculum and clinical placement partnerships. Before moving into these programs Adrian was deputy director of the Greater Green Triangle University Department of Rural Health (Flinders University and Deakin University). Starting with physiotherapy he established an allied health workforce enhancement project, funded by the Victorian Department of Human Services, which evolved into a state-wide continuing education program for 22 allied professions in Victoria that also provided online access to allied health in other Australian jurisdictions.

Interests include clinical and continuing education, complexity science and transformative learning. Rural and remote health workforce recruitment and retention is complex, and clinical educators are likely to be able to play a role in enhancing recruitment as well as retention as part of a symbiotic approach that may need to go further than rural background and rural education only. He finds it rewarding to see students/health professionals developing into leaders who can work well in complex systems. His research and consultancy work includes working with peers from very different disciplines. Associated work informs policymakers, administrators, educators and health professionals, and can be found on ResearchGate, LinkedIn and of course Flinders University's website.
