The 6th Annual Health Professions Education Day will be held on Tuesday, April 14, 2020 from 8am - 3pm at the Michigan League. The guest lecturer will be Elena Umland, PharmD.
Elena M. Umland, BS, PharmD, is Associate Provost for Interprofessional Practice and Education and Co-Director of the Jefferson Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education (JCIPE) at Thomas Jefferson University (TJU). Dr. Umland has been actively involved with JCIPE since 2007; taking on the role of Co-Director in 2017. She received the James B. Erdmann Award for Excellence in Interprofessional Education at Jefferson University in 2011 and was inducted as a Fellow in the National Academies of Practice in 2019. She has worked in Academic Pharmacy since 2006 and is currently the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of Pharmacy Practice at the Jefferson College of Pharmacy. In this role she has been appointed to the Academic Affairs committee within the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy and serves as a site reviewer/visitor for the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education. Within JCIPE, Dr. Umland’s primary roles are the continued oversight of existing and developing interprofessional initiatives within TJU and movement of JCIPE into the National and International arenas. She has worked with University leadership to enhance the organizational chart of JCIPE with partial funding of faculty as well as the addition of several full-time positions within the Center. Her scholarly activity has focused on IPE assessment via collaboration with colleagues (both pharmacy and non-pharmacy) within Jefferson as well as around the country.
The University of Michigan is unique with ten health science schools across three campuses that share the core missions of preparing future clinicians and scholars, while caring for patients within a number of health care systems. Within each school, faculty members are actively engaged in educational experimentation and innovation, and many of our educators are working collaboratively through the Michigan Center for Interprofessional Education to develop and teach novel courses focused on interprofessional health education.
