Developing an innovative blueprint to address medical education questions
The Clinical Education department operates under the direction of Diane C. Bodurka, M.D., Vice President for Clinical Education and Designated Institutional Official (DIO). We are one of the 20-plus service departments and offices in the division of Academic Affairs. It is home to the Office of Graduate Medical Education, the Simulation Center, and the Office of Physician Assistant Education.
The responsibilities of the department include directing institutional activities related to the requirements of the ACGME and developing policies related to medical education as well as strategic planning, conduct, approval, and regulation of MD Anderson’s medical education enterprise.
The mission of Clinical Education is to promote and enhance our graduate medical education and clinical health professional training programs by supporting the educational, administrative and accreditation needs of these programs with caring, integrity, and discovery. We will accomplish this by:
- Ensuring that our training programs meet and exceed national standards
- Working collaboratively with Program Directors, Rotation Site Directors, and various committees on clinical accreditation requirements
- Fostering an atmosphere of collegiality amongst our medical educators
- Promoting excellence in teaching
- Providing high quality and innovative educational activities and opportunities for our trainees
Our vision is to be recognized nationally and internationally as the standard for premier oncologic education programs that educate and train health professionals who understand the value and the importance of high quality patient care, innovative research, and collaboration.
Motto: Supporting the training of outstanding leaders in every field of oncology.
