The Future of Public Health Law Education: Faculty Fellowship Program has three basic purposes:
This fellowship program is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and led by Georgia State Law and its Center for Law, Health and Society.
Ten faculty members from law schools or schools/programs of public health will be selected to participate in a yearlong fellowship program designed to foster innovations in educational programming in public health law and to build a strong community of practice among faculty who teach in the public health law field. The fellows, with the support of their deans, will design and implement new curricular offerings and educational changes in public health law at their home institutions. Each fellow will be paired with a faculty mentor in public health law. During the 2014-15 academic year, the fellows and their mentors will share ideas, experiences and models for public health law teaching, providing opportunities for professional growth and leadership development.
July 16-26, 2014, Park City, Utah
At the start of the fellowship year, fellows will attend an intensive 10-day educational Summer Institute in Park City, Utah, along with their mentors, deans, and leaders in public health law and practice. This highly interactive program will explore principles of adult learning, teaching innovations, building successful, interdisciplinary educational programs, and leading academic change in the 21st century.
