GME as an Instrument of Change to Improve the Health of Systems, Populations, and Society

Theme: New Models for Clinical Education

Institution: Vanderbilt University

Grant Type: Board Grant

Award Amount: $50,000

Grant Awarded: October 2015

Principal Investigator: Donald W. Brady, MD

The conference will focus on three essential levels of health care delivery—systems, large segments of society, and specific populations (disparities)—with attention to the ways in which GME can help address unmet needs. The conference will showcase innovative efforts within the southeast region, and during breakout sessions, participants will discuss if these innovations could be adapted to local needs and scaled; what steps and resources would be needed to bring these innovations to scale; and what barriers prevent these innovations from occurring.

This conference is one of a series of conferences on regional innovations in graduate medical education.
