The Morehouse School of Medicine Office of Academic and Community Innovation (OACI) houses two initiatives:
The MSM Quality Enhancement Plan and MSM Learning Communities
As stated in The SACSCOC Principles of Accreditation: Foundations for Educational Quality, The Quality Enhancement Plan is an integral component of the reaffirmation of accreditation process and is derived from an institution’s ongoing comprehensive planning and evaluation processes. It reflects and affirms a commitment to enhance overall institutional quality and effectiveness by focusing on an issue that the institution considers important to improving student learning outcomes and/or student success.
Goals for the MSM QEP include interprofessional education student learning outcomes and the enhancement of the learning environment through peer to peer and faculty to student relationship building.
A learning community is a group of individuals, sharing common goals, values, and ideas that actively engage in learning with and from each other. At Morehouse School of Medicine, students participate in learning communities to foster a sense of community, improve peer-to-peer relationships, and encourage relationship development between students and faculty.
