BiographyDr. Paolo C. Martin is an assistant professor of medicine at the Center for Health Professions Education (CHPE) at Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences. He received his PhD in Education and MS in Community Health and Prevention Research from Stanford University, and his MA Ed from UC Berkeley. Prior to USU, he was briefly a bench scientist, and later a literacy specialist in South Central Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area where he taught, directed reading intervention programs, developed learning technologies, and taught pre-service and in-service teacher education courses at UC Berkeley and Stanford. His research interests straddle the intersection of health professions education; pedagogies that center learner's voices; equity and justice for marginalized and oppressed communities; children's rights; conceptualizing and supporting human wellbeing; and technology design for learning and for community engaged research. At CHPE he teaches and advises graduate students preparing to be leaders, researchers, and innovators in Health Professions Education. He also conducts research in medical education and supports CHPE's scholarly communications efforts.
He has presented, authored, and co-authored articles and book sections related to dialogic pedagogy, literacy practices, teaching language learners in the content area, supporting the social and emotional wellbeing of minoritized children in schools, technology design, and the critical appraisal and editing of medical content on Wikipedia to teach health professions education. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Martin studied five community-based organization's recovery efforts to support children, teachers, and parent's wellbeing and sense of belonging during a contentious sociopolitical climate.
