Community Medicine Teaching Practices: A National Survey

a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigators:   Katherine Vickery, Michele Heisler

Our project will explore three key research questions:
1. What are current, ideal practices in teaching community/population health to family medicine residents?
2. How do family medicine residency programs (both academic and community-based) engage authentically with communities over time?
a. How do these practices engage/involve residents?
b. Is research frequently involved as a form of engagement?
c. How are successful programs sustained?
d. What can be learned from failed programs?
3. How are partnerships made and sustained with public health and other fields engaged in community work?

The project will consist of analysis of CERA survey data collected to provide updated, quantitative rates of participation and basic descriptions of community medicine curricula at residency programs across the country.

Award funds will be used for Vickery's travel expenses only.

Funding Period: 05/01/2013 to 10/30/2014
