Institute for Innovations in Medical Education Programs & Divisions

The Institute for Innovations in Medical Education at NYU Langone is home to several divisions and programs: the Division of Educational Informatics, the Division of Education Quality, the Division of Education Analytics, Education Information Technology, the Program for Digital Learning, and the Educator Community.

Division of Educational Informatics

For more than 20 years, the Division of Educational Informatics has served as a laboratory for informatics innovation at NYU Grossman School of Medicine. The division has established a national reputation and has played a key role in shaping the direction of educational technology in health professions education. It has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, the Integrated Advanced Information Management Systems Program, the National Science Foundation Advanced Learning Technologies Program, the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation, and the U.S. Department of Education.

Division of Education Quality

The Division of Education Quality focuses on the integrated and longitudinal evaluation of curriculum that captures innovation and outcomes across the continuum of undergraduate and graduate medical education.

The division has three main aims:

  • quality: establish continuous quality improvement processes to ensure that educational efforts are leading to intended learning outcomes
  • effectiveness: turn evaluation data into insight by producing evaluations that facilitate understanding and action
  • efficiency: refine evaluation systems and workflows to create efficient, streamlined, and consistent processes, in order to make the best use of available resources while minimizing burden and disruption

Division of Education Analytics

In July 2019, the Division of Education Analytics was formed to harness the power of advanced analytics and cognitive computing to revolutionize teaching and learning. The division is charged with leading the transformation to a data-driven culture by delivering high-quality longitudinal education data and advanced analytical tools to drive decisions and insight across the education continuum. We serve as a national model for excellence and are able to expand our portfolio of data-driven projects at the local and national levels in pursuit of innovation, research, and scholarship.

The division has three main areas:

  • infrastructure development around NYU Grossman School of Medicine’s education data
  • data visualization and dashboards
  • self-service business intelligence
  • advanced statistical computing
  • integration of clinical and education data
  • data governance
