News and Commentary New Issue Brief on Developing new-models-for-clinical-education

We are pleased to share with you our latest issue brief on developing new-models-for-clinical-education, one of five areas where we focus our grantmaking.

The traditional hospital-focused clerkships and residency rotations, while important, are not enough to solely prepare health professionals to care for our increasingly diverse population in the equally diverse practice settings we have today.

This issue brief outlines new models of clinical education that are providing health professions students and residents with longer-term training in outpatient and community settings.

We hope this resource helps guide your own efforts. Please feel free to share it with colleagues throughout your institution or externally, disseminate at meetings, or post on your website.
