The initiative at Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University aims to educate medical students to become physician leaders equipped to promote the health of the individuals, communities and populations they serve.

To accomplish this, Brown has developed an MD/ScM degree program in primary care and population medicine. The new Primary Care-Population Medicine (PC-PM) program seamlessly integrates the 3rd medical science (health care delivery) with the 1st (basic science) and the 2nd (clinical science) over the 4 years of medical school.

As part of the PC-PM program, Brown has begun developing population medicine content and identifying sites for its longitudinal integrated clerkships (LIC).

Poster presented: Profile of an Incoming Medical Student Class: Comparison of Traditional Students With Students Enrolled in a Novel Population Health and Advocacy Program

Need/gap addressed: Medical students need to be competent in health systems science in order to function in current and future health care systems, including population health, leadership and quality improvement.

Transforming Medical Education

Our proposal at Brown is to prepare our graduating medical students to be able to provide care to individual patients and patients as a group.
