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 March 2018, Lara discusses the philosophy of science. For those interested in taking a deeper dive, she shares the following citations:
• Crotty, The Foundations of Social Research: Meaning and Perspective in the Research Process (1998).
• Howell, An Introduction to the Philosophy of Methodology. (2012)
• Godfrey-Smith. Theory and reality: An introduction to the philosophy of science. (2003)
