Social Media Interest Group

An interprofessional group of faculty and staff from around Duke who come together to share best practices and current projects for social media use in academia, discuss how social media activities can be used for promotion or lead to promotion worthy activities, and how to harness social media to enhance interdisciplinary learning.

Writing Boot Camp

The writing boot camp program was formed to establish an interprofessional writing group framework that fosters community, motivates authors, accommodates individual needs and work styles, and tests the utility of funded scientific writing/editorial services.

Education Day Planning Committee

Health Professions Education is an annual event hosted by Duke AHEAD, Duke Office of Graduate Medical Education, Duke School of Nursing and Duke School of Medicine.  The Education Day planning committee helps to define educator interests and then identify appropriate activities and speakers for the day.  Full details about the 2017 event coming soon!

Health Professions Education Certificate Committee

Duke AHEAD is currently developing a certificate program for Health Professions Educators. This program will prepare health profession clinicians to teach in academic and clinical settings. It provides learners with the educational principles needed to integrate their clinical acumen and knowledge with didactic and theoretical tools to teach others.  The committee is currently creating an interprofessional curriculum and hopes to launch the program in early 2016.
