With support from the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation, Arizona State University and the University of Arizona at Phoenix are implementing a graduate-level primary care curriculum. The Wesley Health Center is one of the clinical sites participating in the program. Macy sat down with Wesley’s Betty Mathis, CEO, and Kathleen Brite, M.D., Chief Medical Officer to discuss the project.
Last week in Washington, D.C., Dr. George Thibault, president of the Macy Foundation, joined Health Affairs and Academic Medicine for a health policy briefing to discuss how to create the optimal health care workforce for the 21st century.
We are pleased to announce our new series of issue briefs examining key areas of health professions education. Our first issue brief, released today on the Macy Foundation website, looks at improving education for the care of underserved populations, one of our thematic priority areas of grantmaking.
