We are delighted to announce the appointment of Stella Ng, PhD, Reg. CASLPO, as the newest member of the Centre for Interprofessional Education (CIPE) in the role of Education Scientist, effective December 1, 2020. This represents a collaboration and shared role between the CIPE and the Centre for Faculty Development (CFD), two of the University of Toronto’s education Extra-Department Units embedded in the Toronto Academic Health Sciences Network.

Stella is thrilled to join the CIPE team! She has been motivated by her practice experiences, as a pediatric audiologist, to study how health professionals respond to value-conflicted, uncertain, and unstable zones of practice. Her program of research: 1) advances theories of reflective practice and critical reflection and 2) develops and tests educational approaches that instill critical reflection to enable professionals to collaborate, communicate, and advocate optimally.

The combination of interprofessional education, team-based care and faculty development offers an ideal opportunity to study and advance teaching and education approaches that lead to compassionate and ethical care and practice, the ultimate goals of Stella’s work.

Stella’s other roles include Director of Research at the CFD; Arrell Family Chair in Health Professions Teaching at Unity Health (St. Michael’s Hospital), Scientist at the Wilson Centre, and Associate Professor, Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Institute of Health Policy, Management & Evaluation, University of Toronto.

As part of her commitment to knowledge mobilization, Stella co-leads the Teaching for Transformation program, currently comprised of a Summer Education Institute, Custom Consults, and an Online Supplement for Education.
