Health Care Transformation
The Health Care Transformation (HCT) Theme is designed to prepare students for career success by exposing them to aspects of practice that lie outside the traditional clinical curriculum. HCT has five domains: Policy, Advocacy, Quality, Legal and Business. Each domain has overarching goals that cover practical aspects of essential knowledge for physicians to effectively deliver health care. Examples of topics covered include the Accountable Care Act, Medicare, Medicaid, private health insurance, physician performance measures and pay for performance, patient safety and quality, patient population management and quality improvement initiatives, malpractice issues and risk management, leadership and advocacy training, health care financial and delivery models.
