Community of Practice Overview
Our Innovation Community of Practice will support collaboration through shared ideas, resources, and goals. This community will be diverse and inclusive—representing learners, staff, faculty, and innovators across the Michigan Medicine continuum from different disciplines, organizations, and expertise. This collaborative community will implement ideas to address important educational problems, share best practices, foster professional development, and ultimately drive innovation throughout all of health sciences education. Join our community to receive email communications. We will provide quarterly updates on our progress as well as send invitations to upcoming events.
"Innovation requires a movement, a culture and a means. RISE will provide a platform for all three; connecting people with different perspectives, skills and ideas towards a new community of educational practice."
Dr. Rajesh Mangrulkar, Executive Director, RISE
"I often think about who will lead the next big breakthrough, and what innovations will further distinguish our Medical School as a world leader in education, research and clinical care. The answer could very well be you — our talented faculty, staff and learners."
Carol R. Bradford, MD, Executive Vice Dean for Academic Affairs
"A better healthcare system and the pipe-line for discovery is dependent on our ability to transform how we educate scientists and providers. Great research institutions such as ours must elevate the importance of innovation and avoid becoming confined by legacy and the ways of the past."
Joseph C. Kolars, MD
Senior Associate Dean for Education and Global Initiatives
Josiah Macy, Jr., Professor of Health Professions Education
Professor of Internal Medicine
"RISE gives me space to be intentional and supported as I develop my ideas. This space is different from my day-to-day work, where I'm driven by deliverables and grant deadlines, and often, where true collaboration and risk-taking are luxuries."
