Staff Biographies

David Musick, PhD, Director

I have been involved in medical education since 1992, and have held various faculty and administrative positions at three medical schools prior to arriving at Carilion Clinic in July 2013.  I have worked in all three levels of physician training (UME, GME, CME) as an educational specialist.  My teaching experiences with health professions learners have focused on the general areas of bioethics, health systems, social and cultural aspects of medicine and educational assessment.  I have been the principal investigator on several education-related grants, and have also done major fund development work.  My research interests include faculty and curriculum development, educational assessment, spirituality and medicine, bioethics and clinical education in rehabilitation.  A current focus of my research is medical professionalism and the learning environment.

I’ve earned a doctorate in Educational Evaluation & Policy Studies from the University of Kentucky, a master’s degree in Sociology from East Tennessee State University, a post-graduate certificate in Bioethics from the University of Washington, and a BS in Human Relations from Milligan College.

I joined Continuing Professional Development in January of 2012. In my role as Professional Education Coordinator, I organize and prepare for education sessions, develop marketing materials, prepare documentation for Continuing Medical Education credit for the sessions, document budget activity, and provide general support for Continuing Professional Development office functions.

My educational history is centered on Communication and Web Page Design. I am excited to have this opportunity in Continuing Professional Development to stretch my wings in areas of my continued interest and expertise.
