The mission of Washington University School of Medicine is to lead in advancing human health through the best clinical care, innovative research, and the education of tomorrow's leaders in biomedicine in a culture that supports diversity, inclusion, critical thinking and creativity.

The Office of Education supports the medical school's teaching mission.

We represent and advocate for medical education while supporting leadership and programmatic development in education, educational scholarship and administration.

Our Role and Services

We support medical education at every level, from undergraduate through professional, in the following key areas:

  • Educational resources: The Office of Education serves as the umbrella office for major teaching resources that are shared across medical education programs, including the Farrell Learning and Teaching Center (FLTC), the Simulation Centers and the Standardized Patient Program.
  • Consulting resources: The office also includes a number of experts who serve as shared resources for the education programs throughout the school. This group includes individuals with expertise in project management, curriculum development and assessment, educational outcomes, education research and faculty development.
  • Education scholarship: Faculty throughout the school have indicated growing interest for a career as a clinician educator. Such educators are typically junior faculty with creative ideas for curricular innovation but without expertise for the relevant scholarship.
