Tina Chiu, MEd, will coordinate continuing education, online and certificate programs.
PCOM recently named Tina Chiu, MEd, as the College’s inaugural director for continuing and distance education. In this role, she will work across academic disciplines, coordinating continuing education programs as well as online graduate and certificate programs. She has experience and expertise in continuing medical education as well as conference planning, facilitation and budgeting.
Most recently, Ms. Chiu served as a project director for the College of Population Health at Thomas Jefferson University, where she was responsible for the overall direction, coordination, implementation, execution and control over specific project deadlines.
Ms. Chiu’s new position comes as the Department of Academic Technologies broadens its scope to better meet the institution’s strategic goal of expanding its educational mission and footprint. As a result, the department will now be known as the Department of Professional Development and Online Learning and will continue to be led by Erik Langenau, DO, MS, chief academic technology officer.
In addition to providing faculty development and instructional design support across PCOM’s academic disciplines, the department will now also work to expand continuing education offerings, continuing medical education, and degree programs beyond the traditional classroom.
“We are pleased to welcome Tina and we look forward to expanding our academic and continuing medical education opportunities to professionals not only in Pennsylvania and Georgia, but across the country,” said Dr. Langenau.
