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 new members annually over its history, with installed members drawn from different specialties/disciplines.
