About Beyond Flexner 2015
Beyond Flexner 2015 brought national attention to schools with strong social mission agendas, created a forum for collaboration and shared innovations among socially accountable medical schools, and legitimized the important role of medical education in addressing the nation’s health inequities. The conference provided an opportunity for educators, students, policy makers, and civic leaders to discuss social mission in medical education; to explore the experiences, challenges, and lessons learned with the promotion of social mission in medical education; and to create a forum for networking, research, and continued collaboration around issues of social mission among individuals and institutions in medical education.
