Academy for Excellence in Education

Mission

Founded in 2020, the Academy for Excellence in Education aims to build an inclusive learning community of educators across the biomedical sciences and UVA Health to foster and honor educational excellence at the UVA School of Medicine. The Academy builds on the contributions made by its predecessor the Academy of Distinguished Educators (est. 2003) by providing expanded membership, networking, mentoring, professional development, and grant opportunities. The Academy is proud to collaborate with the Office of Educational Affairs, the Center for Medical Education Research and Scholarly Innovation, the Office of Faculty Affairs and Faculty Development, and other offices and departments committed to educational excellence in academic medicine.
