About Patient and Family Engaged Medical Education

Stanford is developing a new role for patients, families, and caregivers, in the curriculum development and implementation processes.

The goal of Patient and Family Engaged Medical Education is to include the patient, family, and caregiver perspectives at the exploration, development, and implementation stages of curriculum design, moving the role of patients, families, and caregivers from that of “end user” to that of designer of the hearts and minds of future clinicians.

Our initial feedback from students and patient and family partners is that we are making headway in our early efforts, and we continue to explore ways to build on this success and solidify the role of patient and family partners within the school.
