Teaching and Learning Center

General Information

The Yale School of Medicine Teaching and Learning Center was established in 2012 to promote and support excellence in medical education.  We recognize that our teaching faculty are the critical foundation of medical education at Yale.  Our mission is to enhance the work of our faculty in their teaching, curriculum development, and assessment.

The Teaching and Learning Center has four main areas of focus: Educator Development, Assessment (Student, Faculty and Curriculum), a Standardised Patient Program, and Learning Technology.  

In each of these educational areas private meetings are available to provide feedback and consultation to help you meet your teaching and Learning goals.  In addition, we have walk-in hours every week, please stop by any Tuesday 12-2.  We want to be as helpful to you as possible, so please let us know about your work in medical education and how we can be of service to you.
