Dr. Lisa Carney Anderson
Director of Education
As we have been transitioning to fully in-person classes, our Physiology and Anatomy Faculty continue to find innovative solutions to meet the needs of our undergraduate, professional, and graduate students. We have successfully met the evaluation metrics of
Medical School as we have delivered 40 courses to over 3,000 students. Through our efforts we brought 4.2 million dollars to the department for the 2021 calendar year. Our students have honored our teaching faculty with a total of 14 “Thank a Teacher” awards sponsored by the Center of Educational Innovation. In addition, the IBP research faculty all contribute to our teaching excellence as well as about a dozen part time faculty and
over 50 teaching assistants!
Kudos to Drs. Cook and Weinhaus for their promotions to the Associate Professor rank. Drs. Anderson, Barnett, Olson, and Wu attended the APS Institute for Teaching and Learning, with a shout out to Drs. Olson and Wu receiving APS recognition for their teaching research posters. A job well done to Drs. Batchelor, Liu, and Sham on the first delivery of their new course, Systems and Computational Physiology. Medical Gross Anatomy/ Embryology and Medical Physiology continue to elicit appreciation from our medical students. Dr. Weinhaus, Gutierrez, Wu, and Anderson are all working hard as part of the team building the new integrated medical school curriculum. Our sincere thanks to all our teachers!
