Transforming Your Academic Ambulatory Program from Building Blocks to Emerging Innovations

Course Description

Ambulatory education is an essential element of medicine residency training. Yet, academic institutions face numerous challenges in building an optimal ambulatory educational program, including issues with resident-patient continuity in clinic, effective EMR management, and implementation of a longitudinal core curricula.  This course will provide viable strategies and tools used by certain academic institutions to bolster these important building blocks in ambulatory education.  Faculty from both university-based and community-based institutions will further showcase their educational approaches to teaching implicit bias, health disparities, and health advocacy in the ambulatory setting.  In addition, participants will learn to design clinical innovations to teach residents how to manage transitions of care, LGBT care, and technology in ambulatory care. Participants will engage in several facilitated discussions and interactive sessions with deliverables to apply to their own ambulatory program.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this precourse, participants will be able to:

  • Apply strategies and tools to maintain panel continuity and utilize EMR to teach practice habits in their residents’ primary care clinics.
  • Develop an innovative curriculum to employ technology in teaching ambulatory patient care
  • Design a nested specialty clinic within their own academic ambulatory program to teach residents transitions of care and/or LGBTQ management 

Who Should Attend

Educational directors, core faculty members, and all clinician educators who teach learners in the ambulatory setting will find this course valuable in designing and building a high-quality academic ambulatory program at their home institution.
