Welcome to The Institute for Excellence in Education

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.

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.

February 5, 2018, 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.,  Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Mason F. Lord Building, Center Tower, Suite 2300: Foundations of Teaching and Learning Course

Foundations of Teaching and Learning Course

Teaching is an essential part of the tri-partite mission of Johns Hopkins Medicine. Many Hopkins faculty members who teach regularly have noted they have never had formal training in teaching skills.

The IEE, in partnership with the Office of Faculty Development and the Johns Hopkins Faculty Development Program, is pleased to offer a half-day course on the Foundations of Teaching and Learning (FTL). This course is designed to cover the highest-yield teaching skills topics in a brief time. The course is designed for new faculty, faculty who may want a “refresher”, or faculty seeking additional skills. We believe that even expert, senior faculty will enjoy and benefit from the course.

This course will be offered several times a year and CME credit is available for faculty members.
