(From the November 2013 Issue of MedStat)
Nationwide Children’s and The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center have been selected to pilot a national initiative to enhance primary care training in the departments of Family Medicine, Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Physicians will receive comprehensive training on how to more effectively teach residents to focus care around the needs of the patient, using the patient-centered medical home model. The Primary Care Faculty Development Initiative (PCFDI), funded by the Health Services Resource Administration, is one of the first national faculty development projects of its kind bringing together family medicine, internal medicine and pediatrics in a pilot program to improve graduate medical education. It enables faculty teams to work together to train primary care residents to practice safely and effectively in a rapidly evolving health care system.
