University of Michigan Medical School

Charles Friedman is the Josiah Macy Jr. Professor of Medical Education and Chair of the Department of Learning Health Sciences at the University of Michigan Medical School. He joined the University of Michigan in September of 2011 as Professor of Information and Public Health, and Director of the Michigan health informatics program. Throughout his career, Dr. Friedman’s primary academic interests have intertwined biomedical and health informatics with the processes of education and learning. In recent years, he has focused his interests and activities on the concept of the Learning Health System, and the socio-technical infrastructure required to achieve it.

Dr. Friedman’s department is a “first in the nation” medical school academic department dedicated to the sciences of learning at all levels from scale: from learning by individuals, to learning by teams and organizations, and learning by ultra-large scale systems such as entire nations. It is home to an interdisciplinary faculty, a new graduate program in “Health Infrastructures and Learning Systems”, and a new journal: Learning Health Systems.
