Conceptualized in the late 1980’s by Herbert M. Swick, MD, then the MCW Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, the Society's mission was to “by example and action, stimulate innovation in medical education and represent excellence in education in faculty forums”.
Since its twelve charter members were installed at the college-wide convocation exercises in September 1990, the Society has elected three new members annually over its fifteen year history, with sixty installed members drawn from fifteen different specialties/disciplines. Activities and events include:
• Sponsorship of the National Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA) teaching award receipt as a visiting professor at an annual symposium
• Merit reviewers for the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin – Education proposals
• Selection of the award recipients for the Edward J. Lennon Endowed Clinical Teaching Award and the Marvin Wagner Preceptor Award
Each year since 1990, three full time MCW faculty have been elected to the MCW Society of Teaching Scholars (STS) whose mission is to, by example and action, stimulate innovation in medical education and represent excellence in education in faculty forums. The MCW Society of Teaching Scholars is pleased to announce newly elected members for the 2012-2013 academic year; Michael O. Frank, MD, Martin Muntz, MD and Sally S. Twining, PhD. Welcome!
