WIHI: the Buzz about Medical Training: It’s (Slowly) Changing

Thank you for joining today’s WIHI – the Buzz about Medical Training: It’s (Slowly) Changing. Today we heard from:
  • Lawrence Smith, MD, Dean, Hofstra/North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine; Chief Medical Officer, North Shore-LIJ Health System
  • John Rock, MD, Founding Dean, Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine at Florida International University
  • M. Brownell Anderson, Senior Director, Educational Affairs, Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC)

Learn about how IHI is addressing student training about quality improvement and patient safety through one of its newer initiatives – the IHI Open School for Health Professions. If you missed today’s WIHI, please listen to the recording that will be posted later this week.

  1. Students, are you studying at a new medical school? What is it like? Do you feel like you’re missing out or learning more than students in traditional medical schools?

  2. Faculty, what do you think? Do you think your school is developing different types of future doctors?

  3. Physicians, what do you wish you could change about your medical training? What would you like to have learned? What are your recommendations for today’s students and faculty?
