Doctor of Philosophy in Biomedical Education

 

 Instructional Leadership and Academic Curriculum Program (ILAC)  

 

An increasing shortage of Anatomy Educators trained to the doctoral level in the United States has led to an emergent need for educators to teach anatomical sciences at the undergraduate, professional school, and graduate level. In response to this growing demand, the OUHSC Graduate College and the Department of Cell Biology developed a collaboration with the Jeannine Rainbolt College of Education on the OU Norman campus to offer a Ph.D. that prepares students for careers in anatomy education and educational research. This Ph.D. in Instructional Leadership and Academic Curriculum (ILAC) with a concentration in Biomedical Education prepares students who desire a career focus in education to assume faculty positions in the anatomical sciences upon graduation. Extensive training in the anatomical sciences is coupled with graduate education courses, mentored teaching experiences, and educational research. The degree granting program is the Jeannine Rainbolt College of Education in Norman. You can learn more about the ILAC program in Biomedical Education by following this link: http://www.ou.edu/content/education/ilac/graduate/biomedical-education.html
 
Graduate students take their didactic education courses on the Norman campus, and their basic science courses on the OUHSC campus. The mentored teaching experiences are primarily on the OUHSC campus, where graduate students serve as teaching assistants for professional students in the anatomical disciplines (gross anatomy, embryology, histology, neuroanatomy). Dissertation research for the Ph.D. in medical education is focused on anatomical sciences education. The program is designed to take 4 to 5 years and requires 90 hours beyond the Bachelor’s Degree.
