December 12, 2014 – U-M Learning Health Sciences Job Talks
The Department of Learning Health Sciences, formerly the Department of Medical Education, in the medical school has a broad mission related to learning at all levels of scale: from learning by individuals to ultra-large scale learning health systems. (Learning, in this broad sense, refers to a continuous process of data-directed study and improvement.)
To address this mission, we are recruiting for several tenure-track positions. Candidates for these positions will share a focus on the department’s mission, but will come from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds.
Our first two campus visits will be occurring next week. Details of the candidates’ job talks, which I hope you will find of interest, are below, with links to the abstracts.
