Academic Medicine supplement on the experiences of grantees in RWJF's Preparing Physicians for the Future program

Studies and descriptions of change and educational reform in medical education are few, particularly those involving multiple institutions. Program evaluators from the eight medical schools under the five-year project, Preparing Physicians for the Future: A Program in Medical Education, funded by the Foundation, propose a Supplement to Academic Medicine documenting and describing experiences of curricular change in undergraduate medical education over the past five years. All participants are internal program evaluators participating in the Program. The supplement, tentatively entitled "Issues and Strategies for Educational Reform: Lessons from Eight Academic Health Science Centers" will contain contributions from each school, and each of the authors will synthesize the principles, concepts, and lessons that have emerged from the collective experience within a defined topic area. Examples which span the range of institution type, setting, and contexts will include successes and failures to maximize the generalization of the Supplement to other medical schools.
