Joel & Ellen Gordon Young Investigator Award

The Learning Communities Institute (LCI) is committed to supporting growth of the learning communities model through scholarship as well as personal and professional development of students and faculty across the continuum of learning.

The sustainability of the LCI will rely on outreach to new learning communities and future leaders in health professions education.

Establishment of this award will allow the LCI to invite new participation, acknowledge scholarship, and support the professional development of young leaders in health professions education. It is awarded to students, residents, fellows, or faculty within five years of completing training.
