Department of Medical Education

The Department of Medical Education unites core teaching faculty from across the College of Medicine, via joint appointments, into a single academic department with a sole focus on the College’s educational mission. Faculty members include both basic scientists and clinician educators who collaborate across the four year medical curriculum to provide the best possible learning experiences and environment in which to prepare future physicians. As campus leaders in medical education, department faculty provide peer training in educational methods; promote innovation in learning and teaching; contribute to scholarship in medical education; and lead improvement in education within the College through ongoing assessment. The Department also works closely with the Office of Medical Education to assure optimal delivery of a comprehensive, integrated curriculum.

In summary, the Department’s driving goal is to support and develop our students into physicians who are optimally prepared for their future roles as leaders in medical practice, research, and education. Please feel free to contact me and/or others in the Department with your questions and suggestions as we work together to realize this goal.
