Session Eight: The PACC Program at Johns Hopkins: Population Approach to Clinical Care at the Bloomberg School of Public Health General Preventive Medicine Residency Program

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm (ET)

MAY 29, 2014 Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

Webinar Overview

This webinar will review how the Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health General Preventive Medicine Residency has developed curriculum, called the Population Approach to Patient Care (PACC), that trains residents in health promotion and disease prevention. The curriculum utilizes different approaches to patient and population-based care as well as models of care delivery in health systems. It represents the integration of conventional, complementary and alternative approaches to promoting health in patients and populations, and gives residents the opportunity to work with an inter-professional team of trainers within primary care clinics, patient-centered medical homes and an accountable care organization to understand and align incentives that maximize patient health and strategic goals of clinics and institutions. The webinar will review the two-year curriculum, including didactic, skill-based and application experiences, and will review the rigorous year-long GME training program faculty experienced in developing the curriculum.
