A group of distinguished HMS teaching faculty have been designated Academy members and compose a community of educational scholars who work to enhance the status and skills of all teaching faculty and serve as catalysts for educational innovation. Academy members share a demonstrated commitment to and passion for teaching and a desire to improve the educational environment. By bringing together a wealth of experiences from tertiary care, community, and laboratory settings, the Academy membership ensures that HMS will continue to be a leader in curriculum innovation, faculty development, educational evaluation, and educational scholarship.
