The Center for Experiential and Applied Learning (CEAL) brings together a variety of resources at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and the Innovation Quarter to create a center for shared learning among professionals. Clinical practitioners become competent in new procedures and develop ways to verify and assess levels of competency.
CEAL Educational Partnerships
As a regional and national core training facility, CEAL provides
- Shared learning laboratories
- Instructional equipment
- Hands-on training resources
- Curriculum development services required to advance clinical care capacities and improve patient care outcomes.
This includes a focused mission on measured improvements in patient care.
Our goal is to engage health care practitioners in active hands-on learning that fosters medical competency and confidence. We believe knowledge that is best applied in clinical practice enables verified learning for practice.
We share and partner with pre-eminent professional medical societies, government agencies and industry to provide the optimal resources to advance applied learning and competency assessment
