Mark Miller, PhDMain Teaching and other responsibilities and interests in Medical Education

My main teaching role is to teach the immunology component of the Common Mechanisms of Disease Course that is taught in the spring to the 1st year medical student class. I will also have a small role in teaching some of the microbiology topics that are broached in the organ system blocks. As a member of the Department of Medical Education, my duties also include participating in faculty evaluation and faculty development with the goal of helping improve our teaching product across the board.

Because of my interest in medical education and better preparing or students for their clinical rotations and step 1 board exam, I also serve on the Subcommittee on Evaluation and Assessment (SEA) that is tasked with identifying strengths and weaknesses in our individual courses and in the overall curriculum. I also serve on the Medical School Professionalism committee as the Faculty advisor for 1st and 2nd year students.

Personal interests

Most of my hobbies involve competition and sweating. I have been a sports fanatic, both a participant and a fan, since I was old enough to walk. I love almost all sports, and I still play as many of them as my broken down body will allow. I am a Tony Horton disciple and do a P90X workout every week day. I also do a lot of cycling (on the road and off) on the weekends and even go to spin classes during the week when I can. I still play some occasional racquetball and am an avid golfer than doesn’t get to play too often. I also am an avid poker player. I am married and have 2 kids that are both in college.
