Dr. Brian Ross


Brian M. Ross, PhD, MEd

I am an active researcher in the field of Medical Education at NOSM where I collaborate with researchers at MERLIN (the Medical Education Research Lab in the North) and at Lakehead University’s Faculty of Education. My research interests include:

• Curriculum studies
• Place-based education
• Social Accountability
• Critical Pedagogy

I have acted as supervisor to many graduate students at Masters and Doctoral levels, and am delighted to receive enquires from those interested in enrolling in Masters of Medical Studies who wish to focus on medical education.
