The Division of Professional Education is seeking an Assistant/Associate Professor for this newly posted position.
In May 2014, the Department of Medical Education became the Department of Learning Health Sciences (DLHS). We are a first-in-the-nation basic science department focused on learning, which we view as a continuous process of study and change, leading to improvement. Study converts information into knowledge, and change applies that knowledge to practice. Learning in this sense can occur at different levels of scale: individuals can learn; groups can learn; organizations can learn; and ultra-large scale systems, such as the health system of an entire nation, can learn.
The department focuses on the sciences that can make learning effective, routine, and efficient. Our research programs generate new knowledge that can enhance learning at all levels of scale; our educational programs train new researchers and appliers of the sciences of learning; our service programs help health systems become learning health systems. DLHS engages colleagues across the entire University of Michigan community, as well as the state, the nation, and the globe.
The department is organized into three sub-units:
- The Division of Professional Education focuses on learning by individuals and teams in health settings
- The Division of Learning and Knowledge Systems focuses on learning at the levels of complex organizations and large-scale systems that span states and nations
- The Clinical Simulation Center focuses on learning by individuals and teams in environments with advanced simulation technology that model the real world of health care practice
The Winter 2017 issue of Medicine at Michigan contains Giving (Bits of) Your Self to Medicine an article by Raymond De Vries, PhD co-director of U-M’s Center for Bioethics and Social Sciences in Medicine, and a professor in the Department of Learning Health Sciences.
The Michigan Center for Health Analytics & Medical Prediction (M-CHAMP) was awarded funding for data science research by the Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS).
The initial six articles of Learning Health Systems were compiled as the journal's first official issue on January 19, 2017.
The second cohort of U-M Interprofessional Leadership Fellows includes Department of Learning Health Sciences joint faculty member, Nancy Allee, MLS, MPH.
The American College of Surgeons re-accredited the UM Clinical Simulation Center for a full three-years.
