Family Medicine Education

Jan Gottlieb, MPH – developed a set of resources that:

provide a helpful resource for faculty and staff of medical schools who are planning to, or are currently using service-learning to educate medical students and residents about

  1. community-oriented primary care
  2. Healthy People 2010 objectives
  3. Cultural competence.   

The toolkit, which should be applicable to other fields and disciplines as well, is designed to help minimize some of the start-up time involved in developing service-learning programs.  It will also provide examples for tailoring service-learning to fit your timeframe. The toolkit was based on three of the COPC-service-learning programs developed by our Department of Family Medicine in collaboration with community partners, over the last eight years.
