Healing U showcases the evolution of UCI’s innovative health education programs that are revolutionizing how tomorrow’s doctors and nurses are being trained, and shaping the future of healthcare in our community.
The exhibit illustrates the fascinating history and growth of UCI’s School of Medicine, the emergence of the popular Nursing Science program, and the expansion of the Program in Public Health. The latest medical education tools and techniques are portrayed, such as the UCI iMedEd initiative, the nation’s first completely digital, interactive learning curriculum on the iPad. The exhibit also explores the implementation of evidence-based practice that brings current research into the care of patients, and how emerging issues in health affect society. Finally, it highlights the important role of cutting-edge library resources in supporting this new learning environment, and the changing nature of health sciences librarianship.
On display are current materials, as well as antique medical instruments and memorabilia, rare books, and archival materials illustrating the unique journey from the College of Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons to the UCI School of Medicine and UCI Medical Center.
Opening night speaker Ralph Clayman, M.D., UCI’s Dean of the School of Medicine, is a pioneer in the field of laparoscopic minimally invasive urologic surgery. During his tenure, the UC Irvine Health Douglas Hospital was completed and brought online along with new state-of-the-art laboratory and educational facilities. Also, the iMedEd initiative was launched, applications to the medical school increased by 25%, and the roster of UCI physicians acknowledged by the Best Doctors in America list surpassed the 100 mark. In addition, over the past 5 years, prestigious nationally-recognized research programs have come to our campus, including a Clinical Translational Science Award and a Conte Center for studies in the neurosciences.
The UCI Libraries Exhibits Program promotes the diverse holdings and scholarly and cultural value of the Libraries’ collections to the campus and community.
