The Center for Excellence in Education (CEE) at UVA School of Medicine is pleased to announce that we are recruiting for the inaugural cohort of the CEE Scholars Program.

What? The purpose of the CEE Scholars Program is to advance excellence through development of faculty expertise in educational scholarship. Through faculty and peer mentorship, formal training around core educational scholarship topics, and longitudinal feedback regarding a project of the scholar’s choosing, this cohort program targets clinician-educators seeking to advance their training in educational scholarship. The formal curriculum will include presentations and discussion on topics including: literature review, research question development, assessment/outcomes, program evaluation, curriculum development, methodology (quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods), dissemination, funding, and career development.

Why? This program is designed to provide mentorship and formal training around educational scholarship. Graduates will be in position to submit their completed work for dissemination at local, regional, and national conferences and peer-reviewed journals. They will also be competitive for intramural and extramural funding opportunities.

Who? The intended audience is any faculty educator who is dedicated to the teaching mission and would like to build expertise in health professions education research.

When? Applications may be submitted until July 31, 2023 using this link.  The program will begin in September of 2023. In person meetings will be held for one half-day each month from September through May 2023-2024. Scholars will then have several months to implement their projects with continued mentorship from departmental and CEE leaders. The program will conclude with a recognition ceremony in December of 2024.

How much? Free! We require commitment to attend a once/month meeting (1/2 day) from September 2023 through May 2024 in addition to arranging meetings with mentors at a mutually agreeable time. No financial commitment is required.
