Educational Initiatives

Seven working groups were formed to focus on specific educational initiatives that have the potential to enhance educational and training programs across Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS). Primarily, each working group was charged to analyze strengths and gaps in a specific existing educational program/activity and, secondarily, analyze the potential impact of this program on research, clinical care, community service, and public policy if appropriate, and develop a five-year plan that will include recommendations designed to enable RBHS to be a national leader. Each working group also was charged with identifying metrics and providing a timeline for the achievement of the recommendations, focusing on growth of current areas of strength, improvement of weaknesses, and opportunities.
