Explore Research Innovation at the David Geffen School of Medicine
There are continuous calls for quality improvement in content, process, and outcomes of medical education across the continuum, from undergraduate training, residency training to CME. It is important to have faculty members prepared to take on educational leadership roles. These faculty members might be called upon to assist their departments in identifying essential learning objectives, designing effective educational experiences, improving assessment of performance, or evaluating the quality and impact of existing programs. Although faculty members have historically taken on this type of leadership without special preparation, the Medical Education Fellowship is intended to develop needed competencies that such faculty can bring to bear in delivering educational responsibilities and making informed decisions.
