Department of Medical EducationDescription and Mission Statement:
The Department of Medical Education is the academic home for the highly diverse group of clinical and basic science educators who constitute the core faculty for the first and second years of the medical school curriculum. This Departmental faculty is responsible for planning, producing and implementing the pre-clerkship educational program according to the guidance and oversight provided by the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine Curriculum and Educational Planning Committee and the Senior Associate Dean for Medical Education. As our school develops, the Department of Medical Education will also support and enhance the third and fourth years of the medical school curriculum. Currently the department faculty consists of nine clinicians (spanning the specialties of family medicine, public health, internal medicine, emergency medicine, neurology, obstetrics and gynecology, pathology, and preventative medicine and community health) and sixteen basic science medical educators (spanning the academic disciplines of anatomy, neuroanatomy, embryology, microbiology, immunology, psychology, genetics, pharmacology, biochemistry, histology and cell biology). In addition to missions related to curriculum development and delivery, the Department of Medical Education is a center for innovation in educational theory, practice and scholarship.
