Julie Byerley, MD, MPH, Vice Dean for Academic Affairs and UNC School of Medicine Chief Education Officer, has been selected as one of only sixteen members across the nation to share her wisdom and energies as part of the Inaugural Cohort of the National Academy of Distinguished Educators in Pediatrics (NADEP). Dr. Byerley, professor of pediatrics, has been chosen after careful peer review by expert educators outside the field of pediatrics. Reviewers were impressed by the depth and breadth of educational experiences, expertise and contributions to the field demonstrated by Dr. Byerley.

Affiliated with the Academic Pediatric Association, the purpose of NADEP is to recognize elite medical educators, foster exchange and dissemination of innovative ideas, and to accelerate the development of junior and mid-career educators. Members of the Academy will harness their collective talent and energy to build a strong academic foundation for future educators by consultation and review, coaching and mentorship, and dissemination of cutting edge ideas as Visiting Professors, as well as engaging in strategic thought leadership to impact the professional development of pediatric educators.
