Educators’ Collaborative Lunch

The Department of Medical Sciences & Education is pleased to host monthly one-hour meetings for BUMC educators to share and exchange ideas for best practices in pedagogy for graduate biomedical education over lunch.

If you are interested in being a discussion moderator, suggesting a discussion topic, or hosting a workshop, please email Elaine Lee at

All meetings are typically held on the third Tuesday of the month from 12:00-12:50 pm in the Dean’s Conference Room (R112), unless otherwise specified.
