Prof Felicity Goodyear-Smith, University of Auckland
6 November 2019, 11:00am-12:00pm AEST
Join us for our next Webinar featuring Professor Felicity Goodyear-Smith from the University of Auckland. We welcome all primary health care researchers and teachers to attend!
An Accidental Academic
Felicity Goodyear-Smith is Professor and Goodfellow Postgraduate Chair in the Department of General Practice & Primary Health Care, Faculty of Medical & Health Science at the University of Auckland. She was Head of the Department from 2013 to 2019. She is a general practitioner and also founding Editor of the Journal for Primary Health Care. She has been blessed with being able to pursue a full and varied primary care research career over the past nearly two decades.
In this talk Felicity will share a little of her career journey and how she inadvertently morphed into
an academic. Felicity's subsequent research interests and methodologies have been eclectic, which
fits well with also being a generalist clinician. Over the past few years Felicity has moved toward a co-design approach to research, and will share some stories about projects involving Pacific people in South Auckland, Mᾱori youth in Northland, and primary care researchers in low and middle-income countries.
