Impact of a Longitudinal Medical Student Education-Centered Medical Home on Quality Metrics

Description

The purpose of this study was the incorporation of the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model through longitudinal clinical clerkships is increasing in medical school curricula across the nation. While several studies document the benefit to the medical student experience, few have explored the effects on patient quality metrics and outcomes. In this study, the authors compare the impact of a PCMH-modeled longitudinal clerkship on several screening metrics compared to the rates of non-PCMH clinics at a student-volunteer free clinic (SVFC).
