The Institute for Evidence-Based Health Professionals Education is a partnership involving faculty from the College of Education, the College of Public Health and other UGA units that study, develop and provide evidence-based education for health professionals.
“The goal of the EBP is to provide a mechanism for UGA faculty to focus interdisciplinary research attention on this area and develop new professional education programs based on evidence-based practice,” said Ron Cervero, co-director of the institute and associate dean for outreach in the College of Education. “We hope to serve as a source of expertise and training for professional education programs in public health, medicine and other health professions. It will also be a platform for national engagement in this expanding area of study and pedagogy.”
