Each Scholar will engage in activities to enhance their career as an educator while pursuing a mentored educational innovation project at their home institution. Their projects deal with important themes spanning interprofessional education and practice, health disparities, empathy and communication in health profession students’ training, and the social determinants of health.

“The Macy Faculty Scholars continue to pave the way for health professions education reform,” said Dr. Holly J. Humphrey, President of the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation. “We are excited to see how the impressive group of Scholars in the 2019 class will continue to improve the way we prepare the doctors and nurses of the future.”
