Education Council

Dr. Bruce Liang with student on Match Day

Duties: The Education Council formulates policies and plans for all educational activities sponsored by the School of Medicine which include, but are not limited to, the undergraduate medical curriculum, graduate and postgraduate medical education, continuing medical education, and community education. The Education Council determines the objectives, general form, and content of the educational programs, and assures their quality. It may also request subordinate committees to deal with any issues related to the educational programs. The council oversees the integration of the School of Medicine faculty into the Graduate Programs, considers the roles of off-site faculty, affiliated hospitals, and community faculty in these educational endeavors, and makes recommendations regarding priorities for the use of available resources.

Authority: The Education Council has authority over all educational activities. As a matter of process, the council must submit new strategic plans or major policy revisions to the Dean’s Council for review and comment. Decisions that require the allocation of new resources must be considered by the Dean’s Council and approved by the Dean.

All terms are three years unless elected to fill a vacated seat.

Ad hoc Committee to Develop and Implement Methods for Evaluation of Faculty Member Teaching

The work of the Ad hoc Committee to Develop and Implement Methods for Evaluation of Faculty Member Teaching flows from the recommendations of the earlier Ad hoc Committee to Develop Policies and Procedures for Evaluation of Faculty Teaching, approved unanimously by the Education Council in December 2006. Dr. Koeppen stated in his charge to that committee that the institution needs the ability to assess teaching performance and a systematic way for collecting reliable data over the range of instructional activities in which School of Medicine faculty members participate (undergraduate medical education, graduate school, residents/fellows).

Dr. Koeppen charged the Ad hoc Committee to Develop and Implement Methods for Evaluation of Faculty Member Teaching with the tasks of developing processes and instruments for evaluating faculty member teaching performance by learners in accordance with the LCME ED47 accreditation guideline prior to the next LCME accreditation site visit during the 2009-2010 academic year. Strategies for implementation of the evaluation process need to be incorporated into the accreditation self-study documents to be prepared during the 2008-2009 academic year.
