The Ralph P.Leischner, Jr. MD Institute for Medical Education (LIME) is an academic resource that aims to strengthen scholarship among faculty, students, and postgraduate learners on the Loyola University Health Sciences Campus.  Scholarship is expressed as teaching in many forms; original research; research synthesis; and application, the responsible use of knowledge to address practical problems.  These goals are achieved through the LIME Fellowship program, workshops, consultation, and individualized departmental training.  The Leischner Institute seeks to grow and sustain a community of medical and health professions education scholars who will address current and future challenges in academic medicine and other health professions.
