About the Academy : Organizational Structure

Location of the Academy in the Institutional Organization

The Academy reports through the Executive Dean for Education and Policy to the Dean of the Miller School of Medicine. The Academy is an organization of faculty educators. The Educational Development Office (EDO) is an administrative unit in the Dean’s medical education administration. The Academy works closely with the medical school’s EDO but the Academy is a separate entity with its own mission, priorities, leadership, governance and budget. The staff of the EDO provides administrative and clerical support to the Academy Director, the Academy Steering Committee, and the Academy members. The EDO looks to the Academy members to provide vision and input into EDO’s efforts, including working with Academy members who participate in faculty development workshops and medical education projects.
