Health Professions Education Day
Announcing the inaugural Health Professions Education Day to be held on September 16, 2015 from 9am – 1pm.
The University of Michigan is unique with seven outstanding health science schools that share the core missions of preparing future clinicians and scholars, while caring for patients within a single health care system. Within each school, faculty members are actively engaged in educational experimentation and innovation, but the ideas are not always visible to like-minded educators in other schools across campus. With the recent formation of the Michigan Center for Interprofessional Education, we can collectively create a community space focused on innovation within health professions education.
HPE Day is an opportunity to share and disseminate scholarly efforts completed or in progress, and to spark the dialogue required to synergize our work. This event will bring together educational scholars, practitioners, researchers and students to share best practices and explore opportunities for collaboration and innovation. The day’s highlights will include sharing of our initial efforts in interprofessional education and collaborative care and discussion of opportunities for the growth of collaboration across the health science schools and the broader campus community. The plenary speaker for the 2015 Gilmore Keynote Lecture is Catherine D. DeAngelis, M.D., M.P.H.
