The Scholars program, open to educators in medicine and nursing schools, aims to identify innovators in medicine and nursing education and give them the resources to establish new programs at their respective institutions. Michalec was selected from more than 70 applicants for the prestigious award.

As a Macy Scholar, Michalec will spotlight the value of teaching empathy in an interprofessional education setting through his new program, Interprofessional Training in Empathy, Affect and Mindfulness (I-TEAM).
