Teaching Resources

The KCU libraries have provided this compilation of helpful resources for medical educators.


HEAL (Health Education Assets Library)

The Health Education Assets Library (HEAL) is a collection of over 22,000 freely available digital materials for health sciences education. The collection is now housed at the University of Utah J. Willard Marriott Digital Library.

MedEd Portal (AAMC)

This free peer-reviewed publication service and repository provides access to educational materials, assessment tools and faculty development resources. It also provides a forum where educators in the health professions can publish and share educational resources. The screening and peer review process for author submissions, precludes publication and assures copyright or HIPAA standards are met.
