The goal of the Institute for Evidence-Based Health Professions Education (EBP) is to provide a mechanism for faculty from the College of Education (COE), the College of Public Health (CPH) and other units at UGA to focus interdisciplinary research attention on this area and develop new professional education programs based on evidence-based practice.  We hope to serve as a source of expertise and training for professional education programs in public health, medicine and other health professions.  We will also be a platform for national engagement in this expanding area of study and pedagogy.
