Educational Scholars

To recognize those who have made contributions to educational innovations and scholarship at BU Medical Campus and to encourage collaboration and sharing of expertise among educators at BUMC, we have established a list of Educational Scholars on this website. Listed below are faculty and trainees who have submitted selected citations from their work in health sciences education. This list will be updated periodically.

We encourage you to submit citations for your peer-reviewed publications, published commentaries, workshops or invited lectureships, book chapters, and published course materials, e.g. on MedEdPortal or HEAL. Contributors (faculty, students, residents, etc.) will be listed by name with department and school affiliation (School of Medicine, School of Dental Medicine, or School of Public Health).
