AAIM-ACP-MedU High Value Care Course for Students

The High Value Care (HVC) course http://www.med-u.org/population-health is the result of the collaboration among MedU, the American College of Physicians (ACP), and the Alliance for Academic Internal Medicine (AAIM). Medical students need to understand how their decisions about diagnostic testing, care management and other interventions affect the costs and efficacy of care. Including the HVC curriculum in every medical student’s education is a step to making high value care a reality in clinical practice.

These six innovative online case-based modules have been adapted from the ACP-AAIM’s HVC Resident Curriculum  to begin teaching the fundamentals of value in healthcare to medical students and all health care professionals. Modules include short interactive virtual patient cases, brief instructional videos, and embedded links so that students can apply principles from the HVC modules to other cases, and key teaching points.

The HVC course can be accessed by any school or student with a subscription to any MedU course.  This course can also be made available to any medical professional school or student that does not have a subscription to MedU by contacting info@med-u.org.  The HVC course is an excellent learning tool that can be used alone or in conjunction with other MedU courses.

MedU will expand this curriculum to other specialties outside internal medicine and is creating an editorial board to lead this effort.  The editorial board is chaired by former CDIM President Heather E. Harrell, MD.
