Translational Education

Using Translational Education to Drive Innovation

Society continues to face major health challenges that require innovation rather than improvement.  Innovation in health science will be fueled by translating education in better health and science outcomes.

Translating biomedical research into practice is critical for improving health as it (T1) applies knowledge from basic to clinical research to (T2) enhance adoption of best practices in clinical settings, in order to (T3) improve health. Similarly, education has the potential to improve patient care and clinical discoveries by (T1) exploring an educational intervention within an experimental setting to improve knowledge, skills, and other attributes; (T2) transferring the educational intervention into an applied setting to advance patient care or science practices; and (T3) improving applied health or science outcomes.
