Educational Leadership for the Health of the Public
The Educational Leadership for the Health of the Public is one of three components of the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin endowment at the Medical College of Wisconsin. The Educational Leadership for the Health of the Public provides an opportunity for MCW faculty to leverage expertise to enhance the education of public health professions, health providers, patients, medical, graduate and/or resident/fellows.
The education of health professionals is also a continually transforming, dynamic process. New programs are offered, while others are revised to respond to the ever-changing challenges in health care. Educational programs must be constantly evolving to assure the transfer of new knowledge into the health professional workforce. Health professionals need easy access to educational and training programs to assist in improving the health status of our residents. Recent advances in information technology have provided expanded opportunities for distance education and teleconferencing to provide this educational access. In addition, technology will profoundly increase the health care resources and information available to consumers. Lifelong learning will become a normal part of living as technology-based delivery of information becomes the rule, not the exception.
The Medical College of Wisconsin awards funding from the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment that leverages academic expertise and assets to promote educational opportunities which advance the status of human health. These funds will support investments in healthcare education for both providers and consumers that will provide positive benefits for decades to come.
A list of previously funded projects is available from the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Annual Reports.
