Dr. Maureen McAndrew

The American Dental Education Association has selected Dr. Maureen McAndrew, Clinical Associate Professor of Cariology & Comprehensive Care, to receive the 2009 ADEA/William J. Gies Foundation Education Fellowship, which is designed to familiarize dental educators with a broad range of timely educational issues facing dental education.

"ADEA recognizes the importance of faculty development, and this fellowship was created in an effort to encourage faculty members' growth as educators and scholars," said Dean Charles N. Bertolami, Immediate Past-President of ADEA.

Dr. McAndrew will spend three months in Washington, DC, working with staff in the ADEA Center for Educational Policy and Research on issues such as faculty recruitment, development, and retention; leadership development; teaching strategies; competencies and their assessment; and accreditation and licensure. Her priorities include surveying dental schools about their implementation of teaching assistant and faculty/staff development programs.
