Leveraging Education And Research Now (LEARN) Lab
The mission of the LEARN Lab at KU Medical Center is to be a leader in education research across the health professions. Our vision is to inspire exemplary health care education through impactful, innovative and collaborative education research.
Founded in 2018, the lab began with six KU physical therapy faculty who came together to better understand education and learning in physical therapy through formal research. Upon inception, the lab was called the Leveraging Education And Research iN Physical Therapy (LEARN PT) Lab.
In 2021, the lab name was changed to the Leveraging Education And Research Now (LEARN) Lab to be inclusive of the department’s athletic training faculty and encourage the prospect of future interprofessional collaboration. This expansion led to the addition of an athletic training component of the lab (LEARN AT Lab), alongside the originally established LEARN PT Lab.
The LEARN lab is dedicated to moving research forward in health professions education.
