Designed to help physician assistant education programs overcome both short and long term challenges, Leo is an integrated suite of capabilities that helps you eliminate multiple single-purpose tools, streamlining how you operate your program while reducing cognitive load for all users.
Leo fills all these needs from a single platform:
Whether you're a student, faculty, a course director, dealing with assessment or your next ARC-PA site visit or responsible for the overall success of your program, Leo was built to help make your life easier. Here’s a few ways how:
With everything you're trying to manage, the last thing you want to do is spend a bunch of time learning a new software program. That's why Leo was built around something really easy to use: a central calendar that gives each user a personalized view of everything you need to see, when you need to see it. Leo gives you this big picture with all the supporting details, specific to your role and responsibilities, keeping everyone in your program consistently organized and informed on their upcoming tasks.
Mapping your physician assistant education curriculum for accreditation can be a burden on faculty and staff, costing time, effort and sometimes even some sanity. But what if, by mapping your curriculum for accreditation, you could also improve your program at the same time? Fortunately, with Leo, you can.
Other tools may talk about curriculum mapping, but they only map to your assessments or your content. What about the rest of your curriculum? Only Leo lets you map every session in every course — didactic or clinical. With Leo, you can also map themes across courses, as well as diagnoses and procedures for patient encounter logs and evaluations. And the mapping function in Leo makes it easy for faculty to prove how their teaching supports your program objectives.
Leo even puts your curriculum mapping quality right at your fingertips with the Insights Dashboard.
The Insights Dashboard lets you evaluate your mapping quality at a glance. See a green checkmark? Mapping is complete! Red number? Leo is letting you know which courses need a little mapping attention ... and takes you directly to the problem area with a single click, helping you stay accreditation-ready always.
Evaluations are a vital feedback component of both the didactic and clinical aspects of the physician assistant curriculum. Students, faculty, and courses are all being evaluated throughout an academic year … that’s why evaluations are built right into Leo.
With Leo, you can easily evaluate courses, students and faculty (including clinical assessments) at any time, either scheduled in advance or generated on-demand. Leo also supports formative assessments, peer evaluations, self-reflection, and more. Of course, no assessment is complete without providing useful and timely feedback. Students can access their evaluation results in their personalized Academic Portrait directly in Leo, helping them learn from faculty feedback on their performance. Not to mention, completing assigned or on-demand student evaluations is as easy for faculty as opening an email - no training needed!
Have you ever wanted a central location for all your curriculum information that can help you follow students all the way from acceptance to alumni? Leo gives you that - we call it the Academic Portrait. The Academic Portrait provides mentors and advisors with a longitudinal view of student performance and progress throughout their entire time in your program.
With the Academic Portrait®, you have quick access to a comprehensive, longitudinal view of student performance including:
As physician assistant educators, you have so many mission-critical things to do every day: curriculum mapping, teaching in the classroom and the clinic, course management and everything else that's expected of you. The true partnership you'll find with Leo and the DaVinci Education team can help you discover actionable insights that create deeper success for you and everyone in your program. That's the DaVinci difference.
