WHEA Fellows

The Woodruff Health Educators Academy (WHEA) was formed in 2017 to bring together educators across the health sciences at Emory to promote and support the practice and scholarship of teaching and learning.

WHEA has developed two fellowships to support educator development:

  • The WHEA Fellowship in Educational Scholarship is an 18-month program for health science educators who want to develop skills in educational research and scholarship.

  • The WHEA Teaching Fellowship is a 12-month program for health sciences educators who want to advance their teaching skills and offer quality instruction to their learners.

  • The Kern Fellowship in Interprofessional Leadership, co-sponsored by the Woodruff Health Educators Academy and the Kern Foundation, is a 9-month program for health sciences educators and practitioners who want to be effective change agents in the post COVID era.

Below you will find details about the WHEA Fellows in each fellowship cohort year. 

To learn more about the types of scholarly work that fellows complete during these programs, please see WHEA publications page.
