About

Dr. Teresa Chan is an assistant professor at McMaster University. Locally, she is the Assistant Program Director of the Clinician Educator Diploma program. She is also the Continuing Professional Development Director for their Division locally, and Competency Committee Director for the RCPSC emergency medicine residency program. She serves on the editorial boards of four journals including: AEM Education & Training, Canadian Journal of Emergency Medicine, the Journal of Education and Training in Emergency Medicine (JETem), and BMJ's Journal of Simulation and Technology-Enhanced Learning.

Dr. Chan completed her medical school at Western University, and then completed her residency in the RCPSC emergency medicine training at McMaster University. Most recently, she completed a Masters of Health Profession Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Dr. Chan is well known for her online education research and efforts. She is one of the founding members of the CanadiEM website, the MedEdLIFE research collaborative, and a key member of the METRIQ Study Group. Dr. Chan is also interested in developing medical education innovations (and evaluating them!). For instance, she has worked on a pre-cursor competency-based clinical education program called the McMaster Modular Assessment Program (McMAP), which began as a fellowship program but now is helping to inform best practices with Canada's advent into the CBME.

Her programs of research include:
- contextualized clinical decision making
- improving knowledge translation using education theory and innovation
