Ralph P. Leischner, Jr, MD Department of Medical Education

The Department of Medical Education promotes innovation, best practices, and leadership in medical and related health sciences education. The department is the catalyst for incorporating the distinctive values of Stritch School of Medicine across the curriculum. DOME supports curricular efforts related to social justice and concern for marginalized and vulnerable populations, the role of faith in medical practice, and ethical standards of clinical decision making as hallmarks of a Jesuit and Catholic medical education. Systematic, lifelong reflection on one’s professional and personal development as a physician of such values is DOME’s signature formative educational methodology. DOME is home to a growing cadre of academic educators who focus on teaching and pedagogical scholarship and works collaboratively with key clinical departments to further these common aims.
