Geoffrey Talmon, MD, MEd
What do you do at UNMC?
I am responsible for overseeing LCME accreditation efforts for the COM and the structure/delivery of content to medical students. I also help to manage the anatomic and clinical pathology residency and related fellowships, as well as medical student rotations and shadowing, in the Department of Pathology and Microbiology. Clinically, I am a gastrointestinal and renal pathologist.
Tell us about your educational research interests and teaching role.
One of my focuses is the incorporation of systems-based practice initiatives into medical and resident education. Additionally, I am also passionate about the adoption of novel electronic tools to improve educational workflow and assessment.
What is one of your favorite/memorable teaching moments?
Trying to explain to a High School Alliance student why their blood type was different that what would be expected based on what the student knew about their parents-- it was an interesting conversation to say the least!
What do you see as the biggest benefit to being a member of the IAE?
Connecting with other educators outside of the College of Medicine.
What's something about you that not many people know?
I was in the Cornhusker Marching Band and got to perform at the 1995 National Championship game.
