The December 3, 2014 seminar will feature Dean Christine Pintz, associate professor and associate dean for graduate studies at the George Washington University School of Nursing, and Dr. Rajesh Mangrulkar, associate dean for medical student education and associate professor of medicine and learning health sciences at the University of Michigan. Dean Pintz and Dr. Mangrulkar will help us to consider how other fields have responded to the problem of program accountability. In particular, Dean Pintz and Dr. Mangrulkar will discuss how medicine and nursing have ensured that beginning practitioners are ready for responsible entry-level practice; what the relative merits of different ways of judging program impact might be; whether programs have been asked to link the training they provide to the practice of their graduates, and if so, how they have responded.

Dr. Rajesh Mangrulkar’s academic work lies in technology and its interface with educational innovation and pedagogy. He built his educational administrative experience in the internal medicine residency training program as associate director, as director of ENCORE (an education innovations unit within the Dean’s Office), and then as assistant dean for education innovation and technology implementation until accepting his current role. Currently, as associate dean, he leads the curricular services, student affairs and admissions units for the Medical School. His central area of focus is leading the medical school-wide initiative to transform the curriculum into a program that will graduate physician leaders who help drive change in patient care, healthcare delivery and science. The medical school, with Dr. Mangrulkar as principal investigator, was awarded a five-year $3.1M grant from the American Medical Association and the Medical School to support this transformation, and is simultaneously reconstructing its learning spaces for medical students through the $55M Taubman Health Sciences Library renovation. Dr. Mangrulkar received his undergraduate degree in Computer Science from the University of Michigan, and then went on to complete his medical degree from Harvard Medical School. His residency training was completed in Internal Medicine at the University of Michigan, serving as chief medical resident in 1998. He then pursued advanced study in Medical Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago through 2001 before becoming a faculty member at U-M.
