Mayo Medical School Receives AMA Grant to Speed Change in Medical Education
Mayo Medical School has been awarded a grant from the American Medical Association’s Accelerating Change in Medical Education program to develop a curriculum to better prepare students for the fast-changing world of health care. The medical school, with operations at Mayo Clinic campuses in Minnesota, Arizona and Florida, will receive $1 million from the AMA program over five years.
Mayo Medical School Dean Sherine Gabriel, M.D., credits the school’s selection in part to its work with partners across Mayo including Mayo Clinic Health System, Center for the Science of Health Care Delivery, Office of Population Health Management and Quality Academy, and organizations such as Arizona State University’s School for the Science of Health Care Delivery, the High Value Healthcare Collaborative and Dartmouth’s Center for Health Care Delivery Science.
“This award allows us to create a new model of undergraduate education that will prepare future physicians to better care for their patients and themselves and to lead in transforming American health care,” Dr. Gabriel says.
