ErikAlexanderAlexander Named Executive Director of the Brigham Education Institute

Erik K. Alexander, MD, has been appointed executive director of the newly inaugurated Brigham Education Institute (BEI) at Brigham and Women’s Health Care (BWHC).

Alexander will serve as the first director of the BEI, which was conceived – as part of the hospital’s strategic vision – as a central, cross-department resource for medical education. Modeled after the Brigham Research Institute (BRI), the goal of the BEI is to integrate, facilitate and expand medical training and education across BWH and BWFH.

Alexander, a graduate of Northwestern University Medical School, trained in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology at BWH. His interest in medical education led to studies at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education before joining the BWH faculty in 2002. For 10 years, Alexander has served as the director of Medical Student Education for BWHC and has worked with colleagues to launch the Harvard Medical School (HMS) Principal Clinical Experience and integrate HMS education into the Brigham structure. He presently directs the Core Clerkship and Sub-internship in the Department of Medicine, and is co-chair of the Partners Education Review Board.

“Dr. Alexander’s collaborative nature and expertise naturally align with the mission of the BEI,” said Paul Anderson, MD, PhD, BWHC chief academic officer and senior vice president of Research. “The BEI will serve our faculty, staff and members of the Brigham family, and as we develop the BEI infrastructure, we will share more about ways to become involved in this new endeavor.”
