Ge­orge­town Univer­sity School of Medicine: Master’s de­gree in clin­i­cal qual­ity, safety and lead­er­ship

A sys­tem­atic, ev­i­dence-based pro­gram fo­cused on im­prov­ing pa­tient safety and qual­ity of care while ef­fec­tively lead­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions through a team-based ap­proach.

“THE GOAL IS TO CRE­ATE CON­TIN­U­OUSLY LEARN­ING OR­GA­NI­ZA­TIONS that gen­er­ate and trans­fer knowl­edge from ev­ery pa­tient in­ter­ac­tion to yield greater per­for­mance, pre­dictabil­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity,” said Anne Gun­der­son, as­so­ci­ate dean of in­no­va­tion in clin­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion at Ge­orge­town.

In­di­ana Univer­sity School of Medicine: Teach­ing EHR

Fa­mil­iar­ize stu­dents with us­ing elec­tronic health record plat­forms with real clin­i­cal data to help them fol­low pa­tients through­out the en­tire con­tin­uum and bet­ter co­or­di­nate care.

“THE IDEA IS TO LEVER­AGE AC­CESS OF REAL EHR DATA for stu­dents to gain an ap­pre­ci­a­tion of what the EHR can do for them and their prac­tice of medicine, as well as the po­ten­tial down­sides,” said Dr. Bradley Allen, In­di­ana Univer­sity se­nior as­so­ci­ate dean of med­i­cal stu­dent ed­u­ca­tion.

NYU School of Medicine: Health Care by the Num­bers

Stu­dent-di­rected study of real clin­i­cal data to bet­ter un­der­stand pa­tient and pop­u­la­tion man­age­ment and an­swer clin­i­cal ques­tions at the health sys­tem level.

“IF THEY DON’T BE­COME NAV­I­GA­TORS OF TH­ESE DATA, they will be­come vic­tims of th­ese data. Physi­cians for the most part have been vic­tims of th­ese data up to this point. We hope this project and the con­sor­tium as a whole is try­ing to em­power this new gen­er­a­tion to re­ally play a much more en­light­ened role in all of this,” said Dr. Marc Tri­ola, as­so­ci­ate dean for ed­u­ca­tional informatics at NYU.

OHSU School of Medicine: Your M.D.

Trains fu­ture physi­cians to be self-di­rected life­long learn­ers through a cus­tom­ized cur­ricu­lum that guides them through clin­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ences where they build upon pa­tient in­ter­view­ing, phys­i­cal di­ag­no­sis and com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills.

“PRE­VI­OUSLY, STU­DENTS WERE NOT PRE­PARED on how to do qual­ity im­prove­ment, how to work in a com­plex health­care sys­tem, ex­pand­ing from a one-size-fits-all treat­ment ap­proach, and how to use all the tech­nol­ogy and an EHR through a sys­tems ap­proach. We wanted to to­tally trans­form the cur­ricu­lum and put all the sci­ences on equal par,” said Dr. Tracy Bum­sted, as­so­ci­ate dean for un­der­grad­u­ate med­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion at Ore­gon Health & Sci­ence Univer­sity.

Penn State Col­lege of Medicine: Pa­tient nav­i­ga­tors

Stu­dents work with pa­tients to help them over­come bar­ri­ers to re­ceiv­ing qual­ity health­care, giv­ing stu­dents more clin­i­cal ex­pe­ri­ence and a bet­ter grasp on pop­u­la­tion health.

“STU­DENTS NEED MORE EXPOSURE TO CLIN­I­CAL WORK. They are work­ing with pa­tients, learn­ing about the so­cial de­ter­mi­nants of health, com­mu­ni­cat­ing and col­lab­o­rat­ing with other pro­fes­sion­als in the prac­tice, learn­ing about pop­u­la­tion health and about sys­tems com­pe­ten­cies,” said Jed Gon­zalo, as­so­ci­ate dean for health sys­tems ed­u­ca­tion at Penn State.
