A Curriculum in Health Systems and Public Health for Internal Medicine Residents

Description

This study describes the evaluation of a 1-week curriculum in health systems and public health for internal medicine residents. The curriculum includes seminars on health policy and economics; health insurance; technology and cost assessment; legal medicine; public health; community-oriented primary care; and local health department initiatives. Seminars were led by faculty and staff from the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, Department of Health Policy and Management; the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, Department of Medicine; and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. This article is part of the October, 2011 Supplement to the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, "Patients and Populations: Public Health in Medical Education." The supplement is based on the September 2010 conference of the same name that drew more than 190 medical and public health educators and public health practitioners from the U.S. and Canada. Publication of the Supplement was supported by the cooperative agreement between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).
