Traditional medical curricula generally place the majority of foundational science learning into the pre-clerkship years. Yet, it has been recognized that foundational science education should occur across the medical curriculum to promote excellence in clinical performance. This session will provide participants with an innovative approach to integrating foundational sciences and meaningful clinical experiences in the post-clerkship curriculum. Participants will learn about several educational strategies and the resources necessary to achieve successful integration of foundational sciences and patient care. Furthermore, participants will recognize the challenges and learn practical solutions of this approach in order to implement post-clerkship foundational science integration at their own institutions.
In the Fall of 2018, the ACGME released its second CLER National Report of Findings, which details findings from the second set of visits to nearly 300 ACGME Sponsoring Institutions with 3 or more core residency programs. During the webinar, we will present findings from the report, as well discuss changes over time since the first cycle of CLER visits.
