Committed to Leading the Way in Medical and Biomedical Education
The mission of the Institute for Excellence in Education (IEE) of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is to promote, value and advance the educational mission of the School of Medicine while enhancing the School of Medicine's leadership role in medical and biomedical education nationally and internationally. To guide this mission, IEE has identified four guiding principles or "pillars" into which all of our decisions, work and programs are aligned.
The four pillars of our mission are:
- To Value and Recognize Great Teachers
- To Inspire and Support Research, Scholarship and Innovation in Education
- To Improve Teaching
- To Create a Community of Educators

Foundational Principles for Teaching and Education
Medical and biomedical education is the foundation of academic medicine. IEE felt it was important to explicitly state and codify our institution's educational principles. It is our hope that the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Foundational Principles for Teaching and Education defined here will be inspiring to Johns Hopkins leaders, educators and learners, to help align all teaching and educational efforts.
Valuing and Recognizing Great Educators
One of the IEE's chief focuses is providing and developing the leadership and resources necessary to encourage and produce great educators.
Inspiring and Supporting Research, Scholarship and Innovation in Education
The IEE is also focused on encouraging and supporting programs that stimulate educational research, scholarship and dissemination.
The IEE is committed to providing leadership in the areas of peer feedback and improvement of teaching for which we are developing comprehensive methods and resources. Read more
