At Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, the Center for Medical Education—a Type A Center acting as a Department of Medical Education—offers an academic community for those working primarily in medical education.
Within the center, our team serves several important functions:
- Supporting the medical education mission;
- Delivering faculty development for teaching and learning activities;
- Recognizing top teachers at all levels; and
- Providing expertise around academic work related to studying the learning process while contributing broadly to medical education research and publications.
In pursuit of these goals, our team at the Center of Medical Education partners with a variety of other offices and centers at Case Western Reserve University. Learn more about our various partners:
