Welcome to the Department of Innovation in Medical Education

It is with great pleasure that we announce the creation of a new department at the Faculty of Medicine: the Department of Innovation in Medical Education (DIME). Dr. Maxwell Hincke has been appointed as Interim Chair for a period of one year.

DIME is a non-clinical department offering teaching, research and scholarship in the area of medical education. It enables and evaluates breakthrough advances across the medical education continuum, including but not limited to:

  • Anatomical sciences education
  • Medical education: assessment, e-learning, simulation and support to continuing development of teaching skills
  • Medicine and humanities
  • Research in all domains of education, its practice, structure, content and process

DIME professors will be the University’s primary source for expertise in medical education research and will offer collaborations with clinician-educators who are active in educational research and scholarship. In addition to teaching at the undergraduate level, DIME will develop graduate programs for the purpose of training leaders in the field of health care by enhancing their skills as educators.

Dr. Hincke has assumed leadership of DIME, effective May 1 until April 30, 2015. He is the former Head of the Division of Clinical and Functional Anatomy, Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, where he also holds an academic appointment as Professor.
