Donald Moore, PhD

Located on the campus of the University of Oklahoma, the IACEH was founded in 1995 as a nonprofit corporation honoring individuals who have made distinguished contributions to the field of adult and continuing education.

The IACEH’s citation credits Moore with having had a major role in the practice and development of health professions education through his scholarship and leadership positions at the University of Michigan, the University of North Carolina, and Vanderbilt.

“His intellectual contributions, including his seminal work in creating the taxonomy for assessment of learner outcomes from continuing education, have been considered highly impactful due to their originality and widespread adoption in health professions education,” the citation states.

Moore, who is also director of evaluation with the Office of Undergraduate Medical Education at Vanderbilt, holds doctoral and master’s degrees from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Connecticut.
