Dr. Rajesh Mangrulkar’s academic work lies in technology and its interface with educational innovation and pedagogy. At the University of Michigan, he has built his leadership experience in the internal medicine residency training program as associate director, as director of ENCORE, and then as assistant dean for innovation until accepting his current role in 2011. Currently, as associate dean, he leads the curriculum, student affairs, educational research, and admissions units for the Medical School. His central area of focus is leading the initiative to transform the curriculum into a program that will graduate physician leaders who help drive change in patient care, healthcare delivery and science. He described this work in a recent TED talk. To support this transformation, Dr. Mangrulkar and his team were awarded a five-year $1.1M grant from the American Medical Association, and has also partnered on a $6M grant to develop the University’s first Center for Inter-professional Education. In addition, he led a large team in the reconstruction of the medical school’s learning spaces through a $55M re-envisioning of the Taubman Library.
Dr. Mangrulkar received his undergraduate degree in Computer Science from the University of Michigan, and then went on to complete his medical degree from Harvard Medical School. His residency training was completed in Internal Medicine at the University of Michigan, serving as chief medical resident in 1998. He then pursued advanced study in Health Professions Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, before becoming a faculty member at UM.
