Education Scholar Branch

Branch members will become part of an active community of researchers in the Department of Medicine and will receive individualized career and project coaching. 

Branch members without significant previous training in teaching and learning methods or educational research methodology are encouraged to apply for the Duke AHEAD Certificate Program in Interprofessional Education.

All members will be encouraged to participate in the variety of offerings from Duke AHEAD as they support career development. Members will also be expected to participate in quarterly “education research lab meetings” in which ongoing projects in the Department of Medicine will be discussed and ideas about methods and measures shared to ensure research quality and integrity. 

For more information, contact the branch chair, Dr. Sandro Pinheiro, or faculty coaches Dr. Lisa Criscione-Schreiber, and Dr. Poonam Sharma.

I had this idea of developing a QI course, but I didn't know how to reach out to contacts and talk about what I wanted to do. I think some of the opportunities came to me just by my being enrolled in the Academy.
