BPER Reads

Please join us for BPER Reads, our annual "Battle of the Papers" where Beck McNeil and Jordan Holmes will each champion which paper of 2023 is the one paper all health professional educators must read.

No events to show


We started in October with 5 scholars in our community championing one paper of the past academic year they feel every health professional educator must read. Over the past 3 months we have eliminated 3 papers and are down to our final two.

On February 13th, Beck McNeil and Jordan Holmes will each champion the paper they feel deserves to be read first.

To see the champions, and why they chose their selected papers, please click here. 

Please register for BPER Reads to access the full papers.
