Meg Gaines, director of the Center for Patient Partnerships (CPP), was recently appointed Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Experiential Learning at the University of Wisconsin Law School. The first clinician appointed to this role, Gaines will serve a three-year term. “I am honored Dean Raymond has tapped me to serve in this role,” says Gaines. “I am inspired by her commitment to serve students, engage faculty, and advance her vision for the integration of doctrinal and experiential learning to enrich legal education.”
Gaines will continue as the center’s director, focusing primarily on national initiatives, strategic planning, and sustainability. “I feel fortunate to have a small but dedicated staff that pursues the center’s day-to-day mission with unbounded creativity and enthusiasm,” says Gaines. “I hope my work as associate dean will help raise awareness campus wide of the exciting educational innovations going on in clinical education.”
As Gaines works to raise awareness of educational innovations, the center continues to develop innovative learning experience with a new online learning program that allows students to pursue the Certificate in Consumer Health Advocacy from anywhere in the world. The program’s first offering, Introduction to Patient Advocacy, is currently accepting applications for the fall semester. “We are truly excited to expand the educational opportunities for aspiring patient advocates and share the center’s rich and empowering learning experience with a broader audience,” says Gaines.
