The purpose of the Clinician Scholar Educator Award is to develop and support educators who are dedicated to providing a high-quality clinical educational experience to future rheumatologists and rheumatology health professionals.
 
As director of the Rheumatology Fellowship Training Program, Jonas has been intimately involved in the education of fellows and medical residents and is now playing a vital role in UNC’s current revamping of the medical student curriculum.

Jonas is an active member of the Foundation Phase group, working on the rollout of the new Translational Education at Carolina curriculum. In this capacity, she has been a key contributor in helping to develop the basic framework for the Multi-Organ Synthesis Course. Jonas plans to use the funding from the Clinician Scholar Educator Award to develop a spaced learning component in an integrated rheumatology curriculum.
