In recognition of his excellence as an educator, the Department of Medical Sciences & Education and the Boston University Medical Campus is proud to host the 15th Annual McCahan Medical Campus Education Day.

Dr. John F. McCahan served as the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at Boston University School of Medicine from 1976 until 2006, during which he oversaw numerous revisions and reforms of the M.D. curriculum. He guided a major change in curriculum governance and chaired the Medical Education Committee, created in this reorganization. Throughout his career, he had a particular interest in the patient-doctor interaction and the teaching methodologies that resulted in effective clinical skills. He has actively taught, studied, and administered a variety of educational formats from large group lectures to one-on-one teaching, feedback, and evaluation. Throughout the years, he earned the admiration of his colleagues for his ability to articulate and implement a clear vision of modern medical education.
