This Wednesday marks the inaugural Health Professions Education (HPE) Day, an event where faculty, practitioners, and students will meet to discuss new developments in health education, and encourage the sharing of creative ideas in their fields. The event is an evolution of Med Ed Day, and provides an opportunity for faculty to share ideas and connect with other innovators across campus.
As a close collaborator with U-M health science schools, DEI is thrilled to participate as an event co-sponsor. Some of the many innovations that have stemmed from partnerships within health education include:
- Caren Stalburg’s Instructional Methods in Health Professions Education MOOC (currently open for enrollment for the 7th run of the course, which will launch on October 5)
- Sally Santen’s Teaching and Assessing Clinical Skills MOOC (currently open for enrollment for the 4th run of the course, which will launch on October 5)
- Ralph Lydic and Helen Baghdoyan’s Sleep: Neurobiology, Medicine and Society (currently open for enrollment for the 3rd run of the course, which will launch on October 5)
- Matthew Davis’ Understanding and Improving US Healthcare, which has been offered as a traditional MOOC as well as an exclusive “residential MOOC” opportunity for U-M students
- Anne Sales’ incorporation of Scott Page’s Model Thinking MOOC within her web-blended course (Model Thinking is currently open for enrollment for the 11th run of the course, which will launch on October 5)
We encourage everyone to take part in this exciting opportunity to learn about, grow and support innovative new ideas within health education. For additional event details, please visit the HPE Day website.
