Reflection is a valued process in medical education that supports self-awareness in learners, and the ability to self-monitor and self-regulate. Medical curricula are increasingly providing opportunities for promoting, supporting and guiding reflection in learners, albeit in different circumstances and with varying motivations and outcomes. Moreover, there are established links between reflection, resilience, relationships and professional identity formation.


By the end of this session, the participant will be able to:

    1. Discuss the potential role(s) of reflection in medicine
    2. Describe various contexts in which reflection may be promoted or supported
    3. Appraise different lenses through which reflection may be explored
