Patient and Family Engaged Medical Education
The patient, family, and caregiver perspectives are included at the exploration, development, and implementation stages of curriculum design; moving the patients, families, and caregivers from the role of “end user” to that of designer of the hearts and minds of future clinicians.
To authentically engage patients, families, and caregivers in medical education programs.
We will achieve our goals by:
- PARTNERING with an engaged group of volunteers to ensure patient-centered concepts are represented our programs
- Creating a COMMUNITY of patients, families, and caregivers who volunteer in medical education programs in the School of Medicine
- Measuring the IMPACT of patient, family, and caregiver engagement in our medical education program
