Message from the Director

Sarah E. Peyre, Ed.D.


The Center for Experiential Learning (CEL) is an educational delivery system that supports and connects learning throughout the University of Rochester and UR Medical Center campus’. Building on the foundations of the Office of Educational Resources (OER) and the Office of Continuing Professional Education (CPE), the CEL provides enhanced educational services, such as curriculum design, assessment, educational research, and faculty development.

We create and support inter-professional educational programs and partnerships between Strong Memorial Hospital, Highland Hospital, Eastman Institute for Oral Health, the School of Nursing, School of Medicine and Dentistry, Nursing Practice, Graduate Medical Education, community providers, and beyond. Our activities are designed to provide healthcare providers at every stage in their careers with the information they need to improve their level of patient care.
