Chris Watling is a medical education researcher at Western University’s Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry in London, Canada. Trained as a neurologist, he embarked on a mid-career journey of graduate work and professional development to create the foundation for a program of research and scholarship in education.  

As a researcher, Chris studies why doctors are difficult to coach, why feedback frequently misses the mark, and why professional culture so often undermines the best laid curriculum plans. In this episode of the KIPRIME podcast, Chris talks more about these areas of research and about his favourite professional activity, teaching (and writing about) academic writing.
