About Us


We are a Community

We are educators and students from more than 180 North American and European medical education programs. We are experts drawn from the national leadership of such organizations as CDIM, COMSEP, STFM, ASE, and AMSER.

We envision a future in which all health care professionals receive the education they need in order to provide the best possible patient outcomes. We invite you to join us.

We are Transforming Medical Education

We use our extensive knowledge and experience to meet the considerable challenges facing today’s faculty. Our virtual patient cases supplement traditional instruction methods, freeing educators to focus on patient-centered teaching and individualized learning and helping schools meet many of the Liaison Committee on Medical Education’s (LCME’s) accreditation standards.

We work together to develop innovative tools to educate tomorrow's physicians to meet the needs of both today's and tomorrow’s healthcare environment. We advance medical education through collaborative development, maintenance, and research of innovative and comprehensive instruction programs.

Continuous Innovation and Scholarship

The collaborative model that is the heart of our development process includes cross-disciplinary innovations to improve clinical reasoning skills, introduce novel web-based assessment tools, develop tools to amplify the benefits of clinical preceptors, and integrate basic sciences, professionalism, value-based care, and population health into student learning. 

MedU further supports and enhances these innovations by encouraging initial investigation and pilot testing, enabling large-scale research with grant funding and promoting worldwide distribution of successful advances.
