Socially Accountable Medical Education

BFA Board member and Florida International University Professor, Joe Greer, is the lead author of a new Academic Medicine article summarizing six years of the NeighborhoodHELP program built on the principles of social accountability and interprofessional education. Findings show that compared with peers from other schools, graduating medical students reported more experience with clinical interprofessional education and health disparities. Surveyed residency program directors rated graduates highly for their cultural sensitivity, teamwork, and accountability.
