Weil and Bass to lead UNC School of Medicine's Interprofessional Education efforts

Amy Weil, MD, professor of medicine, will serve as director of Interprofessional Education. Candra Bass, MD, assistant professor of anesthesiology, will serve as associate director. Weil and Bass will work closely with counterparts from UNC's other health affairs schools to foster and promote interprofessional training opportunities for all students.

Weil joined the UNC SOM faculty in 1998 and has a number of prominent clinical and educational roles. She is the medical co-director of the Beacon Child and Family Program and the clinical supervisor of the Depression, Diagnosis, and Treatment Program. She is a faculty advisor in our Advisory College, co-director of the Healer’s Art course, and course director for Passing the Torch: Fostering Medical Humanism through Faculty Role Models.  Most recently, she became a course director for the Intensive Integration course within the new TEC medical school curriculum encompassing reflection, ethics and clinical skills. 

Bass, a UNC alumni, joined the faculty in 2013. She has quickly become involved in educational roles. Dr. Bass has been involved in the UNC Department of Anesthesiology’s Consortium of Anesthesiology Patient Safety and Experiential Learning as a simulation instructor. She is the director of Procedural Simulation and works to integrate task trainers into simulation scenarios with the goal of incorporating the procedural aspects of anesthesiology with the cognitive aspects.
