Patients and Populations: Public Health in Medical Education External Link

If future physicians are to best serve the changing health needs of patients and their communities, medical education must put greater emphasis on public health and prevention, experts say in a supplement to October’s American Journal of Preventive Medicine (AJPM).

The supplement, sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), includes more than 30 research papers and commentaries authored by top medical educators and public health professionals. Content focuses on improving public health and prevention content throughout the continuum of medical education. It grew out of a conference, "Patients and Populations: Public Health in Medical Education," held in 2010 and sponsored by the AAMC-CDC Cooperative Agreement as part of a commitment to strengthen collaborations between academic medicine and public health.

The AJPM October supplement is available in print and online External Link.
