DIME- Graduation with Distinction in Medical Education

This prestigious and rigorous program is intended to support and recognize Robert Wood Johnson Medical School students who have shown exceptional involvement, accomplishment, and scholarship in medical education. These students must have distinguished themselves by assuming a significant level of responsibility in planning, carrying out and completing a scholarly educational activity. Students who are accepted into this program and who fulfill all requirements as certified by the DIME committee will receive diplomas at Commencement stating that they have graduated with “Distinction in Medical Education.”

The DIME program is designed for students who are interested in teaching, educational scholarship, and a possible career in academic medicine. The opportunities for training, teaching, and participation in a scholarly education project have implications for contributing to the improvement of resident and physician teaching skills. The commitment to and involvement in medical education must be intensive. Students are encouraged to express interest in the program by the spring semester of their first year or during the summer between their first and second years.
