Purpose of Visit

During his two stays (September-October 2014 and February 2015), Dr. Côté plans to connect with members of the CHES community, particularly to: identify the core contents and most appropriate strategies for the teaching of scholarship; explore opportunities for collaboration in the development of a grant related to his program of research in supervision; and to update his knowledge about how to use self-assessment and feedback as a means to develop competence during supervision.


Dr. Luc Côté is a full professor in the department of family and emergency medicine and a researcher in health science education at Université Laval (Québec city). Following his graduate studies in social work and a specialization in family therapy (Université Laval and Université de Montréal), he worked in clinical practice and obtained his Ph.D. in education (Université de Montréal, 1993). In 1989, he joined the Faculty of medicine of Université Laval as professor and program director of the Master degree in Health Science Education. In 2001, he founded and directed the Center for faculty development until 2007. In 2007-2008, he completed a research fellowship in medical education with Dr. Georges Bordage at the University of Illinois at Chicago. He later founded and directed the Centre for research in health science education at Université Laval.

For over thirty years, Dr. Côté has been highly involved in clinical supervision, faculty development and research in medical and health science education. His research mainly focuses on the reasoning processes (clinical and educational) of preceptors during daily supervision.
