Elsa B. Cohen, MD, MBA Fund for Medical Education

Children's Hospital & Health System Foundation




Who Dares to Teach Must Never Cease to Learn
John Cotton Dana


Established in honor of Dr. Elsa B. Cohen, an extraordinary teacher, educator and leader at the Medical College of Wisconsin for over 25 years, this fund supports programs to advance the knowledge, skills and passions of physician educators. Each year, a visiting professor who epitomizes Elsa's passion, curiosity, rigor and commitment to understanding the teaching and learning process will be invited for a day long-symposium for MCW/CHW teachers supported by the fund.  MCW's Society of Teaching Scholars and the CHW Foundation under the guidance of the advisory board will coordinate the symposium.  Dr. Cohen was in the first cohort of elected society members, installed in 1991.
