WADA’s Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium works across the educational continuum with visionary partners to create bold innovations. Take a look at our publications to learn more about the innovations that have emerged from transformational efforts in undergraduate and graduate medical education.
Medicine professor supplement
The work of the American Medical Association Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium has advanced the medical education reforms called for a decade ago, according to series of articles published in a special Medical Teacher supplement. Included articles explore:
- The successes, challenges and lessons learned by the consortium in working to fundamentally reform medical education by expanding the implementation of competency-based medical education
- Harnessing the Power of Information in the Delivery of Care and Education
- Consider the science of health systems as a new form of professionalism in medicine
- Strengthening the interdependence between education programs, communities and health systems
- Align health workforce development with societal needs and increased diversity
Facilitate Effective Transitions Throughout The Continuum of Medical Education Manual
The AMA Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium, in collaboration with experts from Wayne State University School of Medicine, Spencer Fox Eccles School of Medicine at the University of Utah, and the University of Michigan Medical School, has released a new coaching guide for learners and educators. navigate through each stage of medical training. the Facilitate Effective Transitions Throughout The Continuum of Medical Education Manual explores in depth the needs of learners along the continuum of medical education, from the start of medical school to the final stage of residency.
WADA Telehealth Clinical Training Manual
the Telehealth Clinical Training Manual is now available for free download.
This book, created by experts at Virginia Commonwealth University, University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Services, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Duke University College of Medicine, and Stanford University Medical Center, provides a framework for organize and implement telehealth clinics. education, in particular at the level of the meeting with the patient.
Medical Students, Residents, and Fellows Make an Impact, COVID-19 Special Edition: Submissions to the 2020 AMA Accelerating Change in Medical Education Health Systems Science Student, Resident and Fellow Impact Challenge
The goal of the 2020 AMA Health Systems Science Student, Resident, and Fellow Impact Challenge (PDF) was to determine whether health systems science, which is one of the most important innovations in emerging from the work of the AMA Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium – was helping efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, especially as medical students were withdrawn from most clinical settings, medical education was interrupted for almost all learners, and health systems faced unprecedented systemic challenges.
The entries generated by the challenge and included in this abstract book were amazing. They demonstrate that education in health systems sciences – the third pillar of medical education, along with basic and clinical sciences – has enabled medical students, residents and fellows to find meaningful ways to contribute to the response to the pandemic.
Medical Students Make an Impact: Accelerating Change in Medical Education Contest Submissions Health Systems Science Student Impact
The goal of the 2018 Accelerating Change in Medical Education Health Systems Science Student Impact Competition (PDF) was to determine whether medical students at Accelerating Change in Medical Education Consortium schools are improving health outcomes, sustainability of practice, and life. of patients and doctors before they even graduated from medical school.
What kind of impact could a medical student have if they were armed with the science of health systems, the emerging third pillar of medical education, along with the other two pillars – clinical and basic sciences? Entries received and included in this abstract book have far exceeded expectations.
Health Systems Science, 2nd Edition
The first manual devoted to this emerging field, Health systems science Now brings you up to date with today’s top issues and solutions. This increasingly important aspect of medical education explores how healthcare is delivered, how healthcare professionals work together to provide that care, and how the healthcare system can improve patient care and the delivery of healthcare. health care.
Along with basic and clinical sciences, health systems science has become a crucial ‘third pillar’ of medical science, with an emphasis on understanding the role of human factors, systems engineering, leadership and patient improvement strategies that will help transform the future of healthcare. and ensuring greater patient safety.
In this second edition, new chapters, new exercises and new information help you acquire the knowledge and skills you need to be successful in today’s challenging healthcare system.
Health systems science review
Health systems science review is a one-of-a-kind synthesis book designed to prepare future physicians and other healthcare professionals to function effectively within healthcare systems by better understanding how healthcare is delivered, how healthcare professionals work together to providing this care and how the health system can improve patient care and health care delivery.
This study tool provides case-based questions followed by discussion of answers and suggested readings, making it a valuable review resource for medical students and instructors, as well as:
- Resident Doctors
- Nursing, paramedical and public health students
- Hospital administrators
Coaching in medical education
Coaching programs in today’s medical schools incorporate a wide variety of personalized goals, including professional identity formation and academic performance, as well as community building, leadership and organizational skills. lifelong learning, clinical skill development and more. Coaching in medical education, part of the American Medical Association’s MedEd Innovation Series, is a one-of-a-kind, instructor-focused field book that enables educators to coach all learners and run an effective coaching program, thus increasing the likelihood that the learner (and therefore the physician) will be successful.
Value-added roles for medical students
Providing real clinical experiences and context for medical students is an essential part of today’s medical education, and partnerships between medical schools and healthcare systems are an integral part of this approach. Value-added roles for medical students, the second volume in the American Medical Association’s MedEd Innovation series, is a one-of-a-kind, instructor-focused field book that inspires educators to transform the relationship between medical schools and healthcare systems with authentic working roles for medical students, adding relevance to medical education and patient care.
Adaptive master learner
The best physicians of tomorrow will be those who continuously learn, adapt and innovate as new information and best practices evolve, reflecting adaptive expertise in response to practice challenges. As the first volume in the American Medical Association’s MedEd Innovation series, The adaptive master learner is an instructor-focused guide covering models on how to train and teach future clinicians who need to develop these coping skills and use them throughout their careers.
