    Win May is a Professor in the Division of Medical Education, Department of Pediatrics, and the Director of the Standardized Patient Program in the Keck School of Medicine. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Southern California, her master's degree in health personnel education from the University of New South Wales, Australia, her master's degree in physiology from the Institute of Medicine, Mandalay and her medical degree from the Institute of Medicine (I), Yangon. She is also certified by Charles J. Wolfe Associates to deliver the Emotional Intelligence Critical Skills for Success Workshop.

    She joined USC in May 2000 as an Associate Professor, prior to which she worked for the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva, and in New Delhi. She was the founding Dean of the Institute of Nursing in Yangon, Myanmar from 1991-1997, prior to which she was a faculty member at the Institute of Medicine (I), Yangon.

    Dr. May teaches in the Introduction to Clinical Medicine (ICM) Program and has been a faculty mentor in the Professionalism and the Practice of Medicine (PPM) course since its inception. She teaches in the distance learning Masters of Academic Medicine program where she used the audio pod-casting kit from the TEL_DL experiments. She also teaches in the Faculty Development fellowships designed for primary care faculty members. She has been involved in curriculum, and faculty development for medical and other health professions faculty in many countries (while working for WHO), and most recently in Korea and Taiwan for standardized patient work. She has also served as an external examiner of doctoral theses for several universities in Australia. She is an active member of the California Consortium for the Assessment of Clinical Competence.

    Dr. May’s research areas of interest are in standardized patient feedback, assessment of clinical performance, assessment of communication and interpersonal skills, cultural competence, emotional intelligence, and evidence-based medicine. She is an awardee of the American Medical Association Medical Education Research Consortium planning grant, as the Principal Investigator collaborating with UCI and UCLA to form the Southern California Collaborative. She is a team member of the Educational Environment Measurement Team in a multi-country study to evaluate the effectiveness of the World Health Organization RHL clinically integrated evidence-based medicine course.

    As a CET fellow, she would like to contribute to building a bridge between faculty on the Health Sciences campus and University Park campus, through joint workshops or other innovative programs. She is also interested in working with other CET fellows in developing on-line continuing education programs for a variety of professions.
