Medical education at Michigan is changing; find out how and why Feb. 25

The University of Michigan Medical School is changing student, resident and fellow education, and also enabling our faculty to strengthen the learning environment and their role as teachers.

During a special town hall meeting from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Feb. 25 in Dow Auditorium in the Towsley Center, Senior Associate Dean for Education and Global Initiatives Joseph C. Kolars, M.D., and other members of the school’s leadership team will lead a discussion about where the school’s educational programs are headed, and the reasons for these changes.

Faculty, staff, trainees and students are invited to attend, ask questions, and engage in a lively dialogue about the future of the school’s educational mission.

The education town hall is the final in a series of five meetings announced by Dean James O. Woolliscroft, M.D., in his State of the School address in September. Previous town halls on research, clinical care, finance, and faculty promotion and tenure can be viewed at: http://medicine.umich.edu/medschool/about/school-leadership/medical-school-dean/deans-communications.

If you have questions about any of the town halls, e-mail: kevberg@umich.edu.
