Associate Professor Femke Buisman-Pijlman
Academic Lead, University of Melbourne
Femke is a global leader in health education and has a double appointment at the Department of Paediatrics and the Melbourne School of Professional and Continuing Education at the University of Melbourne. She leads the educational components of the Strategy in close consultation with stakeholders, including clinicians and people with lived experience. Femke will lead the development of educational resources that increase knowledge, competence, and confidence in health professional’s ability to discuss and manage mental health problems in the Campus.
She hopes increased skills result in better experiences for children and have a positive impact on children’s wellbeing and developmental trajectory.
