Maria Athina (Tina) Martimianakis is the Director of Medical Education Scholarship and an Assistant Professor at the Department of Paediatrics, University of Toronto. She is also a Scientist and the Strategic Lead International at the Wilson Centre for research in health professions education. Drawing on critical social science theories and Foucauldian discourse analysis, Tina studies the material effects of discourse. Currently she is researching how organizational practices associated with discourses of collaboration support or hinder the capacity of interprofessional teams to practice and learn together. As well, she is exploring how discourses of integration manifest in every day medical education practice, exploring implications for how medical students and trainees are socialized into the profession. As an educator, she works to enable clinician educators to incorporate complex negotiations of the social world in their educational planning. She supervises clinical and social science students at all levels of training and teaches at the Wilson Centre, the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, within the Department of Paediatrics and across the Faculty of Medicine, University of Toronto.
