Academic Advisory Board

The Shadow Health® academic advisory board provides recommendations on current Shadow Health curriculum, cases, and patients with the goal of strengthening each current and new product for future students and faculty. The academic board ensures that Shadow Health cases are developed with common standards and best practices. Board members assist with the authorship of original cases and frequently evaluate the effectiveness of these cases at board meetings.
