Farhin Gulam Mohammed Daud Delawala (Late Daudbhai was a brother of Doctor Gulamhabib Delawala).
Farhin Delawala, born on the 19th of June 1995, matriculated in 2013 from Milner High School in Klerksdorp and enrolled for a BA in Psychology and Tourism Management at the North-West University (NWU) in 2014, graduating in 2017. She was granted permission from the NWU to pursue two qualifications simultaneously from two different institutions and thereafter pursued Honours in Applied Psychology from the University of South Africa (UNISA) and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) at NWU. She graduated with a distinction in PGCE in 2018 and graduated with Honours in Applied Psychology in 2019. In the same year, i.e., 2019, she enrolled on the Master of Health Sciences programme at the NWU and graduated with it in 2020 whilst working as a research assistant at the Centre for Health Professions Education, Faculty of Health Sciences. She continued to pursue her PhD in Health Sciences at the NWU whilst working full-time at the Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality.
In her thesis, Developing an interprofessional education programme for a health science faculty, Farhin used a four-phased sequential multi-method research design to develop the Interprofessional Education (IPE) programme. This study contributed to the theory of IPE programme development, implementation and evaluation in the South African context. She developed a step-by-step guide and a to-do list for institutions seeking to develop IPE programmes. She has contributed to the application of the multi-method research design by successfully applying it within the pragmatic paradigm to develop and evaluate an IPE programme in the South African context. This study highlighted the essence of and contextual nuances in developing and implementing an IPE programme in a faculty of health sciences of a traditional University in South Africa.
Farhin is now living in South Africa.
