To advise the Department of Medicine Chair on the investment of resources and the educational challenges, opportunities and priorities for the future. The committee is chaired by the Vice-Chair, Education.
To engage in ongoing, high level discussions about the educational goals of the department and to bring leadership for all levels of medical education—from the first year of medical school to the final year of fellowship—together to help shape the environment for education in the department, at the Faculty of Medicine, and in the various healthcare facilities in the University of Toronto system. To advocate for the needs of learners—and by extension, our patients—in order to foster educational innovations that address important issues confronting society.
Once monthly during the regular academic year (September-June). Additional meetings of subcommittees and working groups may be necessary with periodic reports to the Education Executive Committee.
In addition to senior administrative representation, faculty representatives from the entire spectrum of the department’s education mission—from undergraduate medical education to postgraduate education and continuing professional development—as well as the different sites involved in the department’s educational efforts, are present on the committee.
