We’re embarking on another set of reruns for a few weeks while the hosts use this time to evaluate the impact and future of KeyLIME. We hope to have some news soon, but in the meantime, we know you’ll love this series of Method Consults by Dr. Lara Varpio.
As a PHD trained scientist working in the field, it is of Lara’s opinion that her job is to help others gain the skills and expertise needed to engage in Health Professions Education scholarship and research.
In this consult, originally released in August 2018, Lara shares her reflections on thematic analysis and qualitative research; specifically, on thematic emergence, and how it is commonly used in qualitative research manuscripts.
