Preparing students at the Medical College of Wisconsin to be leaders in the fields of health delivery systems and health policy
Return to Listing
The current health care landscape involves complex and changing systems for delivering and financing care. The way in which health care is now financed and delivered, and the policies that govern how health systems provide care to patients and populations, has never been more complex. It is not enough for physicians to simply understand what care to provide to whom and when to do it. They now also need to understand population health, variation in care, insurance restrictions and pre-authorization, how to work with and manage health care teams, and how to change large organizations to improve health. Medical schools need to cultivate physicians who understand both the health policy and business and economics of medicine and who can lead and participate in the changes necessary for our health care system to improve and thrive.
Through this award, the Medical College of Wisconsin will develop a three-year curriculum to support the education of students in the science of health care delivery and prepare them for leadership roles in health systems, health policy, community health, and advocacy for patients.
