Maria Athina (Tina) Martimianakis is the Director of Medical Education Scholarship and an Education Researcher in the Department of Paediatrics, University of Toronto. She holds a Masters in Political Science, from Wilfrid Laurier University, a Masters in Education with a focus on health professional education and a Doctorate in Higher Education, both from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. Tina also completed a Fellowship in Medical Education at the Wilson Centre, sponsored through the Department of Psychiatry. Drawing on critical social science theories and Foucauldian discourse analysis, Tina studies the interface of discourse, governance and identity in clinical contexts.
She is currently researching how organizational practices 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 practices. Previous work has explored interdisciplinarity as a process of knowledge production and globalization and its relationship to medical competency.
Tina is an active teacher and program developer and contributes to the enhancement of education scholarship within the Departments of Paediatrics, Psychiatry and the Faculty of Medicine more broadly.
