About This Event


Laura Torbeck, Ph.D., associate professor and vice chair of education  in the Department of Surgery at the IU School of Medicine, will present "Is My Program Successful? Structuring an Outcomes Assessment System" from noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday, May 21, in the VanNuys Medical Science Building, Room B11.

The present presentation will focus on approaches to program evaluation and then specifically on how an outcomes assessment database can be devised to help determine if a program is successful.

Dr. Torbeck oversees the education mission for the department as it relates to student, resident, and fellow curriculum and assessment. She champions faculty development initiatives for the department and directs the Research in Medical Education Working group for colleagues interested in advancing their scholarly activity. She has been integral in the surgery residents as teachers courses and has presented at various GME venues across campus. Dr. Torbeck also teaches and mentors students in the Anatomy and Cell Biology Education Track PhD program.  Her research interests include program evaluation, remediation practices and faculty development.

This workshop is presented as part of a monthly series of luncheon workships presented by the Office of Research in Medical Education during the 2012-2013 academic year. The workshops will be held the third Tuesday of each month from noon to 1 p.m. The goals of the series are to share best practices; learn through collegial exchange; and turn education ideas into curricular innovations and scholarly, research and dissemination products.

Lunch is provided. Space is limited and registration is required. To RSVP, contact Kathie Mullins at 317-630-7988 or
