University of Miami awarded Howard Hughes Medical Institute experiment grant
Date:2/28/2011

ore undergraduate science concepts in a clinical context," explained Alex J. Mechaber, M.D., senior associate dean for undergraduate medical education, associate professor of medicine, and co-principal investigator on the grant at the Miller School. "This approach will allow students to go beyond the traditional learning of scientific facts and focus more on the application and integration of basic science knowledge."

Leonidas Bachas, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, said, "The grant is an excellent example of a new approach to education -- one that teaches integrative learning and systemic problem solving. Investing in these initiatives will transform the conventional structure of learning and I look forward for the opportunities that this collaboration will generate for our students."

The three other institutions joining UM will develop competency-based curricula that focus on different aspects of the SFFP report. Purdue is focusing on the integration of biology into chemistry; University of Maryland, Baltimore County is introducing mathematical modeling into biology courses; and University of Maryland, College Park is redesigning the physics curriculum to integrate it with biology.

The case studies created by UM will be used as assessment instruments to measure learning gains based on the competencies across all institutions. The ultimate goal is for the four institutions to adopt and adapt each other's newly developed curricula so there is convergence across the board.
