Health Professions Educators are often lacking resources needed to advance educational research and scholarship. In recognition of this challenge, we are proud to announce the second cycle of Duke AHEAD Supports Health Professions Educators (DASHE) program. DASHE Vouchers are designed to be used in a wide variety of ways by connecting our educators with high quality academic services that facilitate their engagement in scholarly work.
We are pleased to offer project funding for members of Duke AHEAD. This funding mechanism is intended to provide critical start up for pilot research or funding for innovative projects that will generate new evidence, new ideas, and/or new approaches for improving health professions education. Our purpose is to support the vision, creativity, ingenuity, and scholarly works of the educators and educational researchers in the Duke AHEAD community. We will prioritize support of projects that are innovative and illustrate the potential to positively transform the educational experience of learners and/or the learning environment in Duke Health.
We are excited to offer an opportunity for faculty who are interested in health professions education as a career to apply for our Certificate in Health Professions Education & Teaching.
The 2017 cohort of the Certificate in Health Professions Education & Teaching program celebrated the completion of the program with a reception and project presentations on January 22, 2018.
