In the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education's fourth journal club webinar, Stuart C. Gilman discussed his co-authored article, "Connecting the dots: Interprofessional health education and delivery system redesign at the Veterans Health Administration."  Dr. M. Nawal Lutfiyya moderated the discussion about the interaction between care transformation and redesign of health professions education at the largest integrated delivery system in the United States, the Veterans Health Administration (VA).

The basis of the discussion was Dr. Gilman's August 2014 co-authored article in Academic Medicine, which examines: 

  • The implications of new models of care for health professions education, including education for physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other professions engaged in primary care.
  • The challenges and lessons learned in the context of a demonstration initiative that involved five sites and their academic affiliates in Boise, Cleveland, San Francisco, Seattle and West Haven.
  • The VA’s interprofessional primary care curricula for resident physicians and nurse practitioner students that began in 2011.

At the end of the presentation, Dr. Gilman participated in a question and answer session with webinar attendees.

The National Center would like to thank the AAMC for supporting this webinar by generously agreeing to make the full text of Dr. Gilman's article freely accessible through the Academic Medicine website.
