About This Program
Dedicated to training family physicians who are excellent clinicians, leaders, and advocates of health care within the community. We partner with a variety of local health care and community teams to meet the needs of various individuals, families, and populations, with the core goal of reducing health care disparities and improving health.
There are three overlapping training domains:
· Leadership development: A focus on the skills needed to manage teams of professionals who provide either direct or indirect patient care, to lead advocacy efforts, and become change agents.
· Research/analytic skills acquisition and development: A focus on the skills required to develop interventions, measure outcomes, and disseminate results.
· Population health improvement: A focus on working with and improving the health of communities.
Inpatient rotations are concentrated in the first year and continuity clinics increase in the second and third years. Procedure training, sports medicine, and emergency room care are also emphasized.
