40 Things to Know: We’re recognized nationally as innovators in medical education

AMA_sig_RGBWe launch our transformative care curriculum in Cleveland in 2018, and the new competency-based, primary care-focused program is already capturing national attention. Referencing our efforts with Cleveland Clinic to develop a new and better model for medical education, we were recently named a member of the American Medical Association’s Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium.

As one of 32 medical schools selected nationwide to help lead the transformation of undergraduate medical education to better align with today’s health care systems, we’re in very good company.

We’re proud of our ongoing efforts to adapt our training to the changes our graduates are already experiencing in patient care. And it’s always gratifying when national experts acknowledge that we’re headed in the right direction. As members of the consortium, we’re ready to learn from our colleagues what curricular innovation looks like nationally – and we’re ready to share with them how it’s done in Ohio.
